ha ha- the fence is to keep the kids next door outta the backyard. they will mess with the tractors,chickens anything else they can find--especially when we aint home! and if you say anything to the parents well it is your fault that your fence aint good enough to keep em out! :roll: so i am putting up a 6' 1/2 foot board fence all the way around the back yard. if i would have done some of the shindigs these kids have done my daddy would have beat my tail.

I knew it was probably something like that, but it still gave me the chuckle for the day. Thanks! :D

Everyone's bees make it through the winter? Mine did. They're starting to bring in pollen. Probably from the maples.
