plus the guy is a cheapskate and wants a discount on just about every thing he rents because he had some problem with it. 95% of the time, we never find any problems with the equipment! and no one else had any problems either. well this time there isn't going to be any discount.

Uhhg , met a guy from GA in VA to look at a mastercraft ski boat the marina had listed for 32,500.00 . I get there 1st and the boat has not even been detailed and has a laundry list full of little nick pick b/s that is wrong or it needs and the guy was still willing to pay 32k for it .
Why did you even call me ?
Whats it like to have that kind of money ?
Can I have some ?

I hate going to other shops for inspections and yes ......its still raining

If I am going to spend that kind of money it better either make me money or be able to live in it

Just got the ol' adrenaline pumping! Wife and I went out a few minutes ago to check on two sick goats and before coming back in the house, she checked on the turkey hen who's setting a clutch of eggs in a ragweed patch (they never want to lay where it's easy to protect). A few eggs were rolled out of the nest, which was odd, since this hen was very diligent about keeping them all covered. Wife started to slip an egg back in the nest, when the hen hissed and stod up, Wife jumps back saying "snake in the nest!", she takes her walking stick and flips the snake into the grass (almost hitting me with it, and it starts slithering away. She had her hand just inches from this thing, if it had not been trying to swallow a turkey egg, we might be headed to the ER right now.

I tell her to keep it in sight while I went for a gun (I know, I should have had it on me already, there's been a recent mountain lion attack in this county), coming back with the Ruger 10-22 she says it's under the truck, so I go back for the keys.

Toss Wife the keys, she backs the truck out, I get a good look at the snake - it's a copperhead! PopPopPopPopPopPopPopPop PopPop. Got the sumbitch, it's almost in two pieces. Guesstimated to be about 4' or slightly longer.

Scary, glad I don't have to contend with many poisonous snakes around here

Aye. We found out earlier this year that snakes can and will steal eggs right out from under chicken hens. Very frustrating when said eggs were purchased specifically for hatching.

Pretty scary.
What's wrong with the goats? Just went through a period of vomiting with mine, actual vomiting, not regurgitation. With all the rain we've had in CT, had some mushrooms growing in the pasture and they got to them before I found them. Guess they liked them going down but coming back up wasn't pleasant.

Had a similar experience from the hen's perspective. Boy Scout campout. I had gone to bed early. I hear some commotion outside my tent that wakes me up just after I had gotten to sleep. I start to open the front of the tent to tell the guys to keep it down. There's the Scoutmaster standing in front of my tent with a trenching tool overhead and just starting to hack. He brings the thing down about 2 inches in front of my tent.

Copperhead was crawling out from under my tent. Took a while to get back to sleep after that!

Poor Balota. See if he was always equipped with some dynamite, like Pengie, he wouldn't have those problems!
