Weird Happenings on Spring Peeper Farm


A photo of Lisa and familyTwo Fridays ago, we were driving home from J's hockey practice, when we spotted 3 teens walking on the side of the road. It was dark out, so we only saw them at the last minute since they were wearing all dark clothing.

We were just beside them when they threw a two by four in front of the car! What the heck!!?? We just couldn't believe it. We heard Thunk! as it hit the car. By the time we realized what was going on the culprits were gone. We stopped at a friends house to call the cops, for all the good it would do. But we did anyway.

We started on our way home again, when Dave said, "This is bugging me! I'm going back!" So he turned on a dime and we went back. Don't ya think the buggers were there again!

So we went to the house we called the cops at and Dave dropped us off and picked up his friend.

They was gonna go idiot huntin'!

To make a long story short, they found them and Dave chased them down, first with the car, then by foot! He caught one of them, and brought him at the fire hall, since that's where they were at the time and Dave has a key to it.

Good morning... My name is Leah and I am an artist. I am currently working on a body of work that is all different breeds of goats. Some of which will be at the National Dairy Association Convention in October. I ran across two of your photo on google and wondered if you might be willing to let me use the photo as reference for a painting? I work in acrylics. I loved the lighting on these images and the goats were just too darn cute. One is of Whisper the nubian and the other is Febe the Alpine. They would make great paintings, but only if you grant permission. Thank you Kindest Regards, Leah Kucharek Red Hen Design

I got a call last week from one of my neighbors that her husband had found my meth lab. What are you talking about I asked her. On the property behind me along the gravel road, an old couch had been dumped & someone had set up a meth lab. My dogs had been barking a lot the last few days. I called the Sheriff and they came out the next day while I was at work and cleaned it up.

@Lisa, what an exciting week. We had some kids in our extended neighborhood that thought it would be funny to chuck bricks off an overpass at oncoming cars. Well, the bottom line was that a brick went through a car windshield and killed the driver of the car. After about a week of invesitagation by the police the culpits were found. Three kids took bricks from a neigbor's back yard. Sometimes I wonder what goes through these kid's minds. I was just fortunate growing up on a farm where the day was filled with chores and I went to bed too tired to get into mischief. It still works for me 50 years later. Even though I'm retired I still go to bed tired after many completed tasks during the day. Have a great peaceful day.
