PERKS OF REACHING 60 OR BEING OVER 70 AND HEADING
 TOWARDS 80!
 
1. Kidnappers are not very interested in you.


2. In a hostage situation you are likely to be released first.

3. No one expects you to run--anywhere.

4. People call at 8 PM and ask, "Did I wake you?"

5. People no longer view you as a hypochondriac.

6. There is nothing left to learn the hard way.

7. Things you buy now won't wear out.

8. You can eat supper at 5 PM .

9. You can live without sex but not your glasses.

10. Your supply of brain cells is finally down to a
manageable size.

11. You can't remember who sent you this list.


FORWARD THIS TO EVERYONE YOU CAN REMEMBER RIGHT NOW!

AND REMEMBER, NEVER, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, TAKE A SLEEPING PILL AND A LAXATIVE ON THE SAME night.

Yeah he is a little thin. Maybe if you feed him a little better, oh and maybe some  mineral and some  alfalfa  ;D ;D

They are eating Master feeds Pro pellets and really like them. I bet they are eating close to $5 a night, Last night I had a 5 gal pail sitting full that I didn't take to the barn and they cleaned it up.
I had Alfalfa pellets in another bin and some are spilled under it and they don't even touch them.

Ok I was just joking around

I know :) I'm just surprised they don't eat the alfalfa pellets. I have even spread some out on the hard pack snow and they never touched them. They paw the dirt around the hopper under the bin with the grain pellets that are vitamin and mineral fortified. The bucks that are coming in should have good horn growth.
 Seems lots of hunter will take a buck like that and not hunt for a heavy horned brute. :(
Easy to say when I haven't been able to draw a tag for 7 years then you get a tag and one like that shows up it's awful tempting.

Checked both the Barber shop and Chiropractor's office, neither one had it. Mostly they had Peterson magazines.

Sorry :)

The "official" temp is 38 with a wind chill of 31 here this morning. My thermometer says 34 degrees. Outstanding cold for South :) Florida!   ;D

It was 38 on the bank sign in Plentywood MT yesterday, supposed to be warmer today.

My wife is from Windsor and we still get down there a few times a year to see her family.

There isn't much of anything down that way - kinda the forgotten end of Ontario. When she was a kid they would travel into Michigan/Ohio on "outings" (family theme parks etc).

If we weren't travelling to that area for a purpose I would be hard pressed to waste the gas to get anywhere near it, from an entertainment/tourist, something to do with the kids point of view.

Point Pelee, Miner Bird Sanctuary, My Dad was from Tilbury but he's been out west for 75 years. :)

No problem, I have been trying to post some pics and a video and they seem to be wrong format or too big.

Doesn't look like much to do in Ontario. ;D

I'm a long way from there so can't be much help, you will have to get on the inter/web and check out what there is to see and do.

The only time you are likely to hit the antlers on a buck is when you miss him. :(

Wow, very nice!!!!  I noticed the - temps.  burrr.  BTW, would the buck on the second picture be a shooter, or he is still too young???  Seem like his antlers are not thick.

Unfortunately he probably would get shot but it would be nice to get heavier.

My feeding rig and crew.

The old Case and the feed wagon haul the grain and alfalfa pellets that I feed in a cement bunk.

The John Deere with the bale processor grind out the hay and put it in a row. I also bed with straw blown out on the bed ground.

That's Ace with me, Buster another collie dog is always around but didn't get in the picture.
That's it for the everyday crew. In the morning I feed about 250 weaned calves and 26 bulls.
I have the cows out in the hills and they have protein tubs and I haul pellets out every couple days with my 4x4 Power wagon.
The last time I was out I saw a cow moose and the time before 6 bull Elk.

Got a few more pics off the trial cam.
I need to put in fresh batteries as I think the cold weather got to them.
