  1. PayDay is my favorite. When I was a kid I used to eat the peanuts off first then eat the caramel ....ahh heck, I still do, lol.
  2. Ohhh looking forward to 2017 .....c'mon Tom, please play back here in AR
  3. Yes, that is Robbie, Nurk! Also, I saw Nancy Jane LaCouture from Massachusetts
  4. Wow, I haven't been on here in like 'forever' lol and I come to find this :)......thank you so much Beth for posting this, I love you and eventho I'm mostly in FB, I still love this site ...it was the 1st site I ever visited when I first got my computer back in 1999 :). I did post what happened on FB but thought I'd also post it on here. First of all, I want to thank all of you who called, visited us and who sent get well cards with notes in them to us. We are both grateful that God saved us, He was definitely looking down on us and had another plan for us!!.....maybe it was He knew we had the animals and had to take care of them, the house and had to finish remodeling it, or just life and to live it to the fullest! ....I believe it's all the above, but mostly the last one :). What we were doing there when the storage building fell on us was that our friend, the one with the storage building, was wanting to replace it with a metal building, so he said if you come by and help tear it down I'll give you all the wood. It was real good wood and Paul wanted it to maybe build some storage sheds here for hay and feed for the goats. On August 22, 2016....2 days after my birthday :/....we decided to go do it. Paul took a big rope so we could tie the rope around a stud and drive the truck to knock the building over.....we never got to use the rope the building decided to come down on it's own while we all were inside talking about using the rope! Anyway, Paul, our friend, and me started seeing the top falling and started to run.....our friend only got hit on his back and legs with a few brusies and part of the building fell on Paul and the blunt of the building fell on me and trapped me inside. Thank God our friend's sister was there and called 911, and like Marion posted earlier our friend did keep the stud off my hip by using a crowbar until the emt's got there. When they got there some went to Paul and started working on him, then some of them came under the building where I was at, after giving me an IV in my hand.....they then had a pressure lift with rubber things on them that they put between the floor and a stud and started jacking up the building off of me (talk about relief!!!). I then heard one of them say we are gonna have to cut her out.....so then I heard a chainsaw and then they told me they were going to put a board under me and slide me out backwards. Paul and I went to the same hospital, they did CT scans and MRI's as quickly as possible. Paul broke one bone in his left leg, and 2 bones in his right leg, and 3 places in his lower back. They told me I shattered my right hip and broke my right ankle. The doctor then told me that they couldn't fix my hip here at the this hospital and they are going to have to air lift me to Baptist, a hospital in Little Rock, about 65 miles away. I didn't wanna leave Paul, but didn't have much choice. I spent 7 days over there and Paul spent 8 days in the other hospital, and then we both ended up at the Village Springs. We got out October 14th and have been home healing. I'm in physical therapy for my foot and hip and Paul is using knee pads to get around because he can't put much weight on his right leg. His doctor wanted his leg to completely heal before trying to use it....we go to him Nov, 8th :). He has a plate and 4 screws in that leg. I have 3 screws in my right hip and 4 screws in my ankle.....I started off with a wheelchair, then went to a walker, and now I'm using a cane more than any of them I learned all that at Village Springs Well, that's about it.......I still can't do much, house looks awful, but we have family sending food,, taking us shopping and to doctors .......we'll be okay. It is just gonna take time for everything!! Oh, and ALLLLLL our babies are sooo HAPPY we are home....they missed us soooo much. and we missed them just as much.....even the goats!!! Love to all of you! Thank you for the well wishes and prayers!!! P.S. Gonna try and be on here more often now

    RIP Mom

    Benny, I haven't been here in like forever. I'm so sorry to hear this...I know how close you were to your mom. May she Rest in Peace.
  14. ^^ Barb, I haven't made goat cheese yet but I'm planning on making it this Spring! Bought a book on how to . Love that stuff too!!
  15. Wow looks like it's been since August since I posted in here.....have been on FB but have had a lot of problems getting into the Farm . This morning I tied ribbons on the okra plants that I am wanting to go to seed. Have already frozen about 50 bags for winter...it sure will be nice in stews/soups for those cold days! Have sold 3 of my little baby goats and about to sell another little girl in a few days, sure wish I could keep them all but we don't have enough land and the money sure comes in handy! If I had just 100+ acres more I would keep ALL of them, lol.
  16. ^ Aww, thank you Benny!! It was yesterday, but the celebration isn't over yet....what they say: It ain't over until the fat lady sings"? or something like that, LOL!!
  17. Getting things ready around here for a 3 day weekend. Hubby is taking Friday off to take me out to eat and go shopping for my birthday . All I had to do was to mention taking off on a Friday, lol.
  18. Happy Birthday, Brandon! Hope it was a great day!!
  19. I was so saddened to hear of his passing yesterday. Loved Maverick and the Rockford Files as well as The Notebook. May he Rest in Peace.
  20. Aww Barb, I love reading that!! They all have a personality all their own and I LOVE hearing them talk
  21. Freeze the bush beans that I've already cut up and then go out afterwhile and pick some more and do the same thing over again (man, those beans really put on, lol ), then do some laundry and clean some. This weekend we need to finish the fence for the other pen...was hoping it would have already been done, but the cable puller's cable (some ppl here call them "come alongs") just snapped into. Had to go buy a new one and the cheapest one was $49.95 to the highest one $189.00....boy, those things used to cost just $25 a few years ago!!!
  22. Sadly, I cannot vote either cuz I haven't heard any....I'm waiting on the album to come out.....then I can come back and vote! :D
  23. Yes I love deep fried foods especially fish and tater tots, but I, too, don't have them much anymore. Since my cholesterol was 295 a couple of years ago I decided I better cut way back.
