Good Day

So today was a good day.  My driver's license came in the mail and I didn't die of fright from my picture.  Some years,  I pray that I don't have to show it to anyone for the full five years.  Now, all the doctors  want a picture ID. This one will not be too embarassing to show.

My husband killed a couple of roosters yesterday and made chicken salad.  When I hear him sit around and talk about how good mama's chicken was and how they went out and rung their necks, and plucked the feathers, etc.... I know that good memory is not even worth thinking about.  The meat of the yard birds is tough and stringy. Yuck... (remember Penny?)  I prefer grocery store chickens. 

The price of feed is increasing every day.  The hens pay us back with eggs.  The eggs are just as good as the grocery store eggs to me.  We don't eat goat meat.... (yet !!)  The three Billy goats in the picture are for sale. We listed them today on Craig's List. WOW, There is a long list of goats for sale on there. They are selling much lower than what my husband wants for these.  One person in a town not far from us has 22 chickens and 17 goats that "have to go".  Free to anyone that will come to get them.  Today when my husband went to buy feed, he asked the man at the hardware store if he wanted to buy some goats.  The man shot right back, "Do you want to buy a hardware store?"  He's ready to  retire but no one wants to buy his store.

The best part of my day was all the pictures and the video of my great-grands that were posted on Facebook today... the wedding pictures of my granddaughter and my brother... they share the same wedding day... years apart... I know I say this all the time... but I love Facebook!!

We are having to make changes to our insurance provided from the company  from which my husband retired.  We thought everything was set.  Not so... don't know if it is because of the new healthcare or what... but the company is making changes. So part of this day was spent on the phone getting the first part of this ordeal done. I hate change!!  My dad retired from the same company, so tomorrow I will be back on the phone trying to get mama's information in the pipe line.... I will have to go to her house, so she can get on the phone over and over and give them permission for me to do this stuff.

Hope your day was good!

Goat Talk

Usually this is Wordless Wednesday.  Not Today!!  Seems like we had a good reminder of 9-11 yesterday.  Can you believe our President apologized?  "Sorry that someone in USA hurt some Muslim's feelings."   I'm thinking that we need new leadership in our country.  I am upset!!

I went to get my driver's license renewed today.  I had trouble with the eye test.  I just couldn't see the last four letters on the line.  She made me read every line.  I kept waiting for her to tell me to put on my glasses.  I could see the signs however, and she renewed my license with no restrictions!!  Passed for another 5 years.  All I can say is "Thank you, Jesus!!"  (And if anybody is offended because I said JESUS...  get over it!!! ) I'm not apologizing.
