No one cared about anything but COWS. The poor cows didn't even have shelter! I got a jopb working for the only veterinarian around(several farmers CALLED themselves vets) THIS one actually had been to Veterinary school! They would bring a dog in, who had been sick forever-was a deaths door. He would doctor it, perform a MIRACLE-perhaps even major surgery. They would come back to get the dog, after a week or so. He was say $50.00. They would say"keep the dog, I ain't payin' $50-I can get me another dog for free!" I learned I was in the wrong place-but it was too late! So, I've been here ever since. It's improved some-but mostly because more people from other places have come here! N.J> was getting crowded and expensive-but most I knew took care of their animals!! That's my RANT for today-Ahm gittin' riled!! ha!
    Well I'm not here by choice, Thank Uncle Sam for that… LMAO!!! It's beautiful in the country, but I'm disgusted w/the schools, the county government, and the way they treat their animals. A lot of northerners live here because of the military, and I've seen some changes… good ol' boy system here, and they pretty much stick to it. I'm hoping at some point to move...

    We are freezing our balls off!!!! lmao It is currently -11 with a wind chill of -37... Ya its bad... No work for me... I65 was closed.. Actually heard it got reclosed again a few hours ago. We got over a foot of snow. The wind wont stop blowing and everything has turned to ice.. So Daisy and I have spent our day on the couch. She cant be outside for no more than 2 mins. Last time we went out she lasted a min ..Not even enough time to pee her paw froze and she just about fell over. I had to carry her inside. She hates to be carried but she hasnt minded today... So that tells me that its super bad for her!!!! Keep warm everyone!

    Oh my gosh, everyone has my sympathy, so cold everywhere, here in Central TX,
    we've broke 130 year records. My poor friend in St Louis, MO has heaps of snow
    and actual temps below 0 and told me NOT to complain, lol It is crazy to close
    schools w/out ice or snow, crazy! Hubby worked in Minot, ND for Texaco, I know
    from his stories how scary cold it is up there and around there...now THAT's cold!
    Love & prayers covering you & yours~GOD bless all here with no electricity outages
    and safe travel.


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.
