I love that quote, Gramma Dishes!
Kimblee, I love the idea of getting them drunk! That's so funny.
Lady Knight, that sounds like a great retirement plan! We recently found out about "mini cows," and now we really want one.
I told my husband that maybe our next location, especially if we end up in a part of the country where land is cheap, we should try for a small farm. He really wants the pig, I really want the cow. My 7-year-old *desperately* wants a cow and promises to feed it, milk it, muck its stall, compost its manure, etc. if I will only buy her a cow.
She's determined to be a farmer when she grows up. She wants all the animals plus the land to farm.
My dad says our backyard looks like a farm, between the chickens and the extensive garden beds, latticework and teepee for peas, etc. And we're lucky enough to have woods and a creek just behind. Sometimes I wish I were one of my kids, I'd love to grow up that way.
