Guest Book

In moving my website from my old one, to this blog, my wife decided to move the guest book entry's too, and then if anyone wanted to come visit, and leave a general comment, they could do it here. However feel free to comment on any of the posts, it doesn't have to be here.

  6. Patrick LaBarge: Happy belated birthday! I'll be 45 in April. I read about myself in your blog. I was suprised I made the same page as the governor. Hey, drop me a note on how you're doing that "electroysis" process. I really like your scroll work there too. You should put more on your site about that hobby. It goes well with all the other stuff us "down home boys" play with. I'm always looking for tips or just someone elses perspective on how things are done.

  7. conard hunter: Farmers are the "Mother of Invention". No farmer has ever been able to buy everything brand new......I watched my dad take something that was design for one thing and tweak it for another application.....I remember saying to my self I sure hope I can do that when I grow up....

    Thanks for the web site...........

  12. Rudy Miller: I've just ordered the plans for the tree shear. I'm wondering if with 2 pieces of 1" plate cut round you could make it turn to the verticle for trimming large branches from trees ???
    I'm also disabled (not Military) But I was shot in the spine with a German Lugar when I was 12 yrs old. Does that count?
    I enjoy your site.
    Thanks

  13. j green: My husband is also the quintessential scrounge. For years I have called him the "Scrounge Puppie". His scrounging ways started out embarrassing and frustrating for me at first. He would drag home all sorts of oddities and leave them in piles, "just in case we ever need one of those". Sometimes the piles would get so big that I would lose my mind and force him to clear it out.

    Not only did he scrounge, but sometimes he expected me to scrounge too. One very snowy and cold winter, on the way to town, my husband spotted some firewood that had been lost by the road. He made me pull over so he could collect those 8 pieces of firewood. Oh, and did I mention that I was 8 1/2 months pregnant at the time?

    After that I decided that he was who he was and I loved him so I veiwed his scrounging as an amusing, but cute little quirk. That is, until we moved onto a homestead.

    We now have a 12x16 goat barn, a 6x16 bunny and milking barn, a 6x16 chicken coop and run, a 7x10 kidding pen,
