Here in VA, I usually visit monthly. In past years I've stayed in the water, but this year I have hauled. I'll still visit monthly as there are several projects I'll be doing.

We use those to keep the cows warm in the winter...keeps the milk from freezing and turning into ice cream...(they are easier to milk that way)

Every time I step outside, she's 15' away. No, I mean every time. If I'm not on her, she's by my side.

To the original question.... every day ......hang on I live on her.

"Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end."

Light travels faster than sound. That is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak!.
