It's a rainy, muddy early spring day in MN. Finished my morning rounds. I'm a semi retired but fairly busy Farrier (horseshoer-42 yrs.) Decided to sit down at the computor for a while and rest my back. Haven't posted in a while. Paul, we have somethings in common. I'll be 65 on Mar 17. My Mom is 91 and lives on the old family farm 175 mi from here. I try to see her whenever I can. I'm a Veteran as well. The love of my life is Marilyn. Been married almost 38 yrs. Love her more now than I ever did. I tell folks that I don't have birthdays anymore. If you don't have a birthday-you don't get older. My wife, grown kids (5) and grandkids won't have it. So it gets celebrated each yr and I get a yr older. Oh well, 65 is the new 45 I'm told and at the VA where I doctor they're asking me what my secret to youthful health is. All I have for chickens is egg layers but I enjoy them and will order a new batch of layer chicks and 40 or so cornish cross later this spring. Happy B-day to you and me and all Mar 1947 vintage models.
