The wife decided on the spot to get a doe that is milking and a doeling for company. Funny how she gets to make the decisions and I get to write the check
That is encoded into the female DNA I believe. It is also true of designing jobs that "we" will do on the yard or around the house. I learned a long long time ago that when "we" needed to paint, wall paper, or the like that I was going to do the work and she would pick out the materials. It is the natural way ....
We went to Home Depot last week to pick up 3 sprinkler heads to replace 2 which were not working and to have a spare. This was ~$30.00 and a quick in and out of the store if I went alone. However, she wanted to "get out of the house" and went with me. The additional trip through the indoor garden area ended with a pass through the appliances since they had an appliance sale. The new stove with the gas burners and electric oven caught her eye again, but I really do not want to get into a semi-major rewiring to add the circuit for the oven since we have a gas stove. As I pointed out the problems we wound up in front of the refrigerators, and the new french door models with the freezer drawer. One of our friends has one and she loves it except for the lack of water and ice in the door. There was a new model there with those new additions. The price tag for the trip went up quickly especially when I had to take time the following day to correct the paperwork when I picked up the unit. They do not do very well on delivery without damage with those lumber delivery trucks. The removal of the doors, moving of the old and new units, and set up took the better part of Saturday to finish and I have to move the old unit into storage tomorrow on my way to work since it is still fairly new.
Nice looking goats too. I was suggesting to a more rurally located friend yesterday that she needed to get a couple of goats too. She raises exotic chickens, ducks, geese, rabbits, a snake, and a mating pair of turkey. Breakfast when she visits is interesting as the eggs are naturally colored for Easter or are at least larger than average in the case of the goose and turkey eggs.
