Trying to advertise buffalo for sale, need to work out how many of the older in calf cows we will be selling (decisions, decisions ::) ) Moving 4 younger heifers and bull onto fresh pasture, have to gte building sorted to bring em in tho.... Not much tbh ;)
the most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, loving concern.

Dispatching geese , Mrs RTB boning them out, fitting tie down rings to my new transport box, collecting windfalls, bedding up the pigs and playing fetch with them  :)  , paying the bills :(  , counting out the pills for the next week , battening down the hatches in preparation for the expected "stiff breeze", looking forward to work tomorrow for a rest.....

Got another call out this morning ( helps having a girlfriend in the office !!  :innocent: ) film star wages... yeah right ,but not to be sniffed at , once home its been an afternoon of bedding up the pigs and checking them over, then the main event, yes its that time of the year again, fresh batteries in the torches, smoke detectors and the gas and carbon monoxide alarms tested too.
All the outside lights checked and timers reset Ive put the clocks back now and its off to bed “early” and the bonus lie in to come, heaps of pain killers to night and a good rest for the knees,just dont bother calling me tomorrow !
As an aside we havent had rain for 22hrs  :raining:   but I wont hold my breath...

Dont forget your clocks , just try explaining it to your beasties in the morning when they are shouting for breakfast

Sleeping. I've now been diagnosed with fibromyalgia as well as everything else and I overdid things big time on Friday and Saturday. The result being that I slept the clock round, got up, had breakfast and then slept some more.
