"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

Midnight and what are we doing?

We are all awake as COYOTES are in the internal perimeter of the farm. Fourth heard them about 30 minutes ago and the men went out to check on the animals and take care of the coyotes.

Our geese and ducks are not in contained buildings at night, but in pens. My concern is mostly for them, although our goats are all in open barns inside their pens. Boy I was from zonkers snoring to wide awake in a blink of an eye...

Men return in shirt jacks, Wellington's and safety gear...all is well! So farmer will sleep lightly as will his sons. Farmer's wife will try to sleep and I am sad to admit I probably will sleep soundly....zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Whew....better coyotes--then people up to no good....could you put up motion lights would that scare off the coyotes ?
Hope you got some sweet rest knowing your critters were all tucked in.

A nice coyote fur hat could be in order should they return.

I removed a comment that asked me not to post...rest assured it was removed immediately!

Deby-motion lights sound great BUT we have the geese and ducks that probably would trigger them all night long!!

Glenn- I was telling Bill that I would like to hang the carcasses over the entrance gate as a warning... Bill then said...'oh you want an entrance gate!!'

I will say that when the men went out they were prepared to return with the materials for a coyote hat...I think I would prefer some coyote slippers!

Oh scary time. Crept up on. Just the way our adversary, satan, does!! But our weapons in the Lord are victorious.

Hey Jennifer, can you get an Irish Wolfhound or, what is that dog called.....hmm, there is this huge moutain dog that people use in Africa for keeping lions away from their sheep. They are enormus, but need to "work" or they get crazy.

I think they would eat your coyotes like a twinkie!

Many Blessings :)
