Oh Brian, my heart goes out to ya. What a horrid thing about the ewe. Was she too far gone to even think about putting her in the freezer? Always wondered about animal death, if that meat is edible or not, elaborate.
Sorry to hear of your knee, that is retched, and your teeth, oh brother.
You know I am interested always to hear of your forecasts, as like the weather. We are very temperate here yet, but I recall last year, all of us on the west coast had a very frigid winter. Frozen from middle of December until the middle of February, that is gonna be a nasty if it is cold again like that this winter. I do believe you, and I am now making better preparations for an upcoming cold one.
So good that you are prepared for food and life saving stuff, should any catastrophe occur. That is a huge part of the faith that you have, I have that faith in my family as well, you know that. Food storage for one year's time has always been a big thing with our families. Not that I am that good at food storage, but I know how to feed well, on little supplies, I was taught by a very wise Mother. Wish she was here.
Great that you gave that bird to the family that has never had a free range, home grown turkey, you can bet your bottom dollar that they are going to LOVE it, and want more...
Hmmm...what else did you say, gotta re-read your post...hold on....oh yes, the rocks, that is some hard work to move around rocks, I know all about rock moving 8-) ;) :) :) :). Do take care, Brian.
Natalie, what a bummer. You have had your fair share of hard work with that roof thing, eeks. Keep up that chin. Have the most beautiful and awesome day, life, health. Cindi
