Well once again its the case of "never say never." Words have alot of calories. That's why I don't seem to be able to lose any weight. I keep eating my words. Sigh...

I always said that we would never, ever get a trampoline for J. Well, Dave found a near new trampoline in the local paper for next to nothing. Sooooo, here it is. We are having a blast with it.

Doug, Most people around here don't raise animals like we do. We sell by the internet www.kijiji.com or as last resort auctions. Eggs and such is by word of mouth. People know that we raise our animals humanely and our conditions are sanitary. There is no money in it, but it does keep us going in the feed department, which is the largest bill. Thanks for reading! Lisa

Lisa, As a future small scale farmer want to be I was wondering how you get your animals sold? I would think living rural a lot of people living in the area may have their own farms and animals. One day (seems like a dream) I'd love to sell a few of what every I'm rasing just to help ends meet. So how do you do it? Thanks for your Blog, Doug
