I just wanted everyone to know that I am so thankful for all of the information that I am learning here. My husband and I live in Houston and in the next year plan to move to the country in Arkansas. We are so excited! I love reading all of the information that everyone provides and I am trying to learn everything that I can. Thanks again and I hope that everyone stays warm and dry.

My husband and I live in Deer Park, Texas, outside of Houston and also plan on moving to NE Louisiana on about 5 acres of land in the next year or two. I'd love to hear from you or anyone else who has made this transition. Will not be a transition for my husband, as he grew up in the country, but will definitely be a change for me. Anxious to hear any suggestions!

i don`t know much about Russelville but Clarksville is a nice little town with the mountains to the east,west and north and the Arkansas river to the south with easy access to I-40. KatG lives south of the river over by Mt.Magazine. good people and great country, you will love it.

O.k. I am going to keep my hands warm thanks for the advice. I would also love any other suggestions that anyone may have over the move and also any suggestions on making the transition easier on my three children ages 9, 11 and 13. Just for the record my husbands name is Bryan. Thanks!

Cynthia & Hubby, (We gotta get him a name. LOL)
Welcome, sure glad you enjoy the neighbors. Ya'll be carefull up there in Arkansas, we hadda couple of Arkansans here, by the name of 'Ennis & EIEIO. They done some wierd stuff, EI, wore a tinfoil hat, and 'Ennis usually had a cast iron skillet wrapped around his head.
Don't ferget that KEEPIN warm and dry is good but gettin wet and cold, while workin outside, makes the GETTIN warm and dry feel all the better.
Now then, don't wait til ya move, put yer tallest boots on and wade on it, the stuff gets pretty deep but it won't hurt ya.

Cows can kick pretty good...Especially if your hands are cold...



Alias    Posted 01-07-2005 at 08:56:51       [Reply]  [No Email]
Now, SE, to the best of my recollection, all our cows kicked ugly bad when ever abody fondled their udders with cold fingers. Seemed it sent shivers down their spine and it stopped only when it reached the end of their rear hoofs. Kinda like an electrical shock that causes a kicking reaction.

Now, Cynthia and Bryan, y'all hurry up and come on back and see us sometime. I'll be here for you if you need me........gfp

The mental image of that makes me think that maybe you deserved that kick,, BRRRRRRR

Les    Posted 01-07-2005 at 09:09:51       [Reply]  [No Email]
I thought that was the reason for the man who only milked one cow to have a milking machine.

Reminds me of the old joke...

A farmer is sitting in the neighborhood bar getting soused. A man comes in and asks the farmer, "Hey, why are you sitting here on this beautiful day getting drunk?"

Farmer: Some things you just can't explain.
Man: So what happened that's so horrible?
Farmer: Well, today I was sitting by my cow milking her. Just as I got the bucket bout full, she took her left leg and kicked over the bucket.
Man: Ok, but that's not so bad.
Farmer: Some things you just can't explain.

Man: So what happened then?
Farmer: I took her left leg and tied it to the post on the left.
Man: And then?
Farmer: Well, I sat back down and continued to milk her. Just as I got the bucket about full, she took her right leg and kicked over the bucket.
Man: Again?
Farmer: Some things you just can't explain.

Man: So, what did you do then?
Farmer: I took her right leg this time and tied it to the post onthe right.
Man: And then?
Farmer: Well, I sat back down and began milking her again. Just as I got the bucket about full, the stupid cow knocked over the bucket with her tail.
Man: Hmmm...
Farmer: Some things you just can't explain.

Man: So, what did you do?
Farmer: Well, I didn't have any more rope, so I took off my belt and tied her tail to the rafter. In that moment, my pants fell down and my wife walked in.....

Some things you just can't explain...

Salmoneye, Chuckling
