That's Nellie trying to get straw for her nest. Yes, I've got a channel on Youtube. It has some of the best videos from the farm on there. I've been on vacation for a few days, kayaking on the Wisconsin River. It was nice.

But it's time to get back to the farm. More later!

Things I understand, but just don't "get"

So one day my honey were out fishing and talking and we hit upon someone else idea of fun. I said, "I understand it, I just don't 'get' it." to which Dave gave me that look.  I said that while I understand the jist of whatever it was, I just couldn't understand how people would actually make a hobby out of it.

Trust me, there's a lot of that out there. Now, this is not in any way demeaning these interests, but realize that other people find it just not to their liking.

Things that I understand, but just don't get:
1. Fantasy Football  - I call it "D & D for jocks"
2. D & D
3. Golf  - a lot of money to hit a ball around mowed grass.
4. Raising miniature - dude, if you can't ride it, eat it or have it mow your grass, why even raise it? 
5. Blinging out cars/trucks/semis - This one will tick off my Dad who would chrome his whole semi if he could but...............why?
6. Scrabooking - I know, but it just smacks lf "look at me! look at me!" but hey, whatever tricks your trigger.
7. Soccer, actually Professional Soccer  - BOring, to watch. But hey, some of those players are hot.
8. Trips to Mall of America - Yeah, don't spend a lot of time in malls nor shopping, nor do I care all that much about it.
9. Cruises on mega ships - Um, It's a floating city with all the amenities that will dock at some sort of shanty town with a built-up tourist area. I'd rather go low scale..or actually fly. Being on an ocean gives me the heebie jeebies..
10. Big game hunting. - If I'm spending that kind of money, I'm coming back with meat for the entire city, not just leaving it to rot.
11. Running  - I know, I's exercise. It's 'great' and all that. Big tater tots on my chest + asthma means my exercise high comes from elipticals. There's no decal to stick on my truck for doing x amount of hours on the eliptical. No one gives me a shiny blankie either.
12. Basejumping - no...just no.
13. Uber- manicured lawns.  This must be some sort of guy thing, because if it were left to me, the side yard would be a hay field to be mowed, raked and baled for food..not to have a huge carpet of green.
14. Spending hours on hair and nails at a salon for big bucks. #1, I don't have the $$. 2. the stuff is temporary. 3. No animal will look up at me in the morning and say, "hey, nice hair" (but I do like to paint my nails here at home.)
15. Nope, that's it.

I'm sure people don't get things that I do...I'm ok with that.
