Mel checking in with the homemade chicken noodle soup. A bunch of slapstick comedy....and a great big hug. Seems I caught that bug too. But this cheered me up immensely today:
A DEA officer stopped at our farm yesterday "I need to inspect your farm for illegal growing drugs."
I said "Okay , but don't go in that field over there.....",
The DEA officer verbally exploded saying, " Mister, I have the authority of the Federal Government with me!" Reaching into his rear pants pocket, the arrogant officer removed his badge and shoved it in my face. "See this f'ing badge?! This badge means I am allowed to go wherever I wish.... On any land !! No questions asked or answers given!! Have I made myself clear?.... do you understand?!!"
I nodded politely, apologized, and went about my chores. A short time later, I heard loud screams, looked up, and saw the DEA officer running for his life, being chased by my big old mean bull...... With every step the bull was gaining ground on the officer, and it seemed likely that he'd sure enough get gored before he reached safety. The officer was clearly terrified.
I threw down my tools, ran to the fence and yelled at the top of my lungs.....
I'm not on vacation either. Just been really busy taking care of the MIL and getting life back in the order it should be in. Lots of stress, but surviving it. I didn't know you were in Orlando!!! I hope you had a little fun with the Mouse.View Thread
