Regarding the post awhile back about what to raise on a farm for the greatest return--I had a mean rooster that was getting meaner and meaner and would nail anyone who walked through the backyard, so his days were limited anyways. But, one day he got out of the yard cause he could get over the 6 foot fence. He went to the neighbors who have a big black lab and, of course, the hunting dog took care of Henry the rooster. Well, the neighbor felt really bad and brought dead Henry over and confessed that his dog got him and he felt really bad and he wanted to pay for it. I told him that was okay, Henry got out of the yard so it was really his own fault and not to worry about it. Well, the next day there was an envelope in our mailbox with a $20 dollar bill in it, and written on the envelope was "In Memory of Henry the Rooster". Now, that's a good return!!

Dang, and i thought i was cold! lol - let's see, raise mean roosters and train them to climb into yards that have big dogs and benevolent owners, yup, makes sense to me! lol
I like win/win situations - you heard the one about the fella with the sick Thoroughbred? Well one nite he sold it to some drunk for $100 - a few days later he happened to meet the buyer in town and inquired about the horse. The buyer said "Oh, it died." The guy was surprised the buyer wasn't upset, but the buyer said when he sobered up, he realized he didn't want a horse so that nite he'd raffled the thing off - sold 100 tickets for $2 each, so he'd no longer owned the horse when it died. "Well, wasn't the new owner upset?" "Was for awhile, til i gave his two dollars back..." :)
