i went out this morning to let my goats and ducks out and to feed them and i found that the ducks hadnt been put in for the night, thats when i realized that last night i got distracted when i was putting away the goats and managed to forget the ducks. well this mornin there is one duck walking around the yard all lonely and a few feathers are all thats left from the other two. well i guess next spring i will have to get a few more and be more carefull to make sure i always put them in. glad they were only $1.50 each when i got them on sale at TSC! so no big financial loss at least

sorry to hear that    Posted 08-12-2003 at 06:20:25       [Reply]  [No Email]

Isn't it amazing that we can be trusted to use the P1ssed word, but not the sox word to describe the gender of an animal?????

here's another bad one    Posted 08-12-2003 at 10:14:58       [Reply]  [No Email]
yeah, it is strange. I couldn't get a message through a few weeks back. Turned out the filter caught urin@ate, but let pee through.

yea i wasnt too terribly upset about it, i mean ducks are ducks and something else had a good meal i suppose lol. but my mother was all upset how we were going to break it to my younger sister, my mom was saying that maybe we should just tell her that they must have flew away, then i pointed out to my mother that my sister is realy gona have to start understanding these things sooner or later, last week we had a rabbit die, not attacked just died of old age or something, but my sister go hysterical over it like a little kid, problem is that she is 17 years old, i think my parent gota start waking her up to the real world, she also has a big thing against us getting pigs cause she doesnt want us to eat them, well i think she is gona have realize how the world works sooner or later.

Listen I can top that....    Posted 08-12-2003 at 11:27:12       [Reply]  [No Email] musta missed the story about the six ducks my daughters suffocated. Suffice it to say, you should never take ducks to bed. It hurt the girls a lot more than it hurt me, but they learned a valuable lesson. Cindi

I think it is sad when parents, with good intentions, "protect" their children from reality.
Life in the real world, has good events and bad ones. Children can take it and small doses of reality from the beginning will help them to grow up with normal expectations. It is sad when grown people can not deal with things like that. The parents have done them a great disservice.

Sometimes you don't have a choice. Like the time my little Jenny Benny stepped on her kitten, no hope for him. Major reality check for both of them.

was little, and playing kinda rough with a batch of kittens, (actually he was launching them into the barn rafters by jumping on the other end of a 1x4) and needless to say, one got a kinda broken leg. He just gathered the poor thing up, found his dad and asked him to weld it :)

Weld it....Lol! Our cat Havoc broke his leg and I was broke, could not afford a vet, so I taped it up and hoped for the best. It's got a little wrinkle in it, but he gets around okay.
