Retired but got a little hobby farm. Try to do enough farming and ranching to justify buying old tractors, implements, and other things I don't need. Got a few cows so I have something to chase and justify my horses. Use to raise pigs but that got to be too costly and too much work. However I'm not really into yard work. If grass gets too high I turn my horses loose. Don't bother no body, what they do on their side of the fence is their business, and my yard is my busness. I'm more concerned if neighbors take the time to set on the porch, drink coffee and tell lies then what critters or junk they have in their yard. If a hobby farm is being a yuppie then I confess I'm one.

My 1985 Honda Accord (with only 90,000 miles) purrs like a kitten, even on the mean streets of Manhattan.

I dont buy Japanese cars to impress anyone, they simply last longer than cars from the Big Three. My Toyota has 240,000 mi on it.

But not all Japanese cars are "Japanese". We have a Nissan plant opening in Madison, Mississippi. "Japanese" plants in Tennessee, and another that might open in Como, Mississippi. And Chrysler Corp is now owned by Daimler Benz of Germany.

Confusing isn't it. What was the Japanese (I think) curse, "May you live in interesting times."

I didn't think I was one but I do have the plastic fence!! The only thing I've found that the horses won't eat. I have old Ford 8N tractors so am I disqualified?? I also have alternative energy so am I a HIPPIE too?? Or just confused??

Cripes, I guess I'm safe. I ain't got no job at all. I bought my wife a Mercedes car, but its an '81 and plenty rusty, and its a diesel.
I've got a snowmobile exhaust in the kitchen with JB Weld drying. I washed it right in the sink. Did the same thing a couple months ago with the top end of two other sleds.
Oh, and I have 4 snowmobiles and the newest is 26 years old...
I wear hiking boots, but they're 3 years old, and I wear them ALL the time. I own a pair of loafers, I've had them for 9 years, worn them maybe 15 times.
I've got all my teef, but they ain't straight, I never did have braces or anything like that.
Oh, I built a porch for my inlaws last week. Good halfa$$ed carpentry. Looks pretty good too...

Nope, I'm no yippie, I drink COFFEE flavored coffee, although I do like it iced.

Oh, and Joe, that decaf green tea is pretty good if you pour a couple fingers of bourbon into it.

Well, if that's what it takes, I guess I am, too. Only trouble is I ain't young and I ain't upward other than to be able to get outta bed in the morning. I'd kinda like trying to be one though but I'll never have enough money for a Range Rover or a BMW and if I did I buy a new 1 ton flatbed. I got some horses but none of 'em is registered anything. Don't have any of that white plastic fence, neither. I guess there's just no hope for me.
