    Its about time

    Some of you may be familiar with the continuing saga of the mobile home. About 27 years ago, my father in law was extremely ill and wanted to get out of the city and into the country (to spend the rest of what was left of his life) We got permission to bring a mobile home to our property and set it up. He died and my mother in law absolutely hated it here (city girl) and moved mack to town. To abbreviate the story, my sister moved to WI and lived in it for well over 20 years. I was still in charge of all the real upkeep and stuff (frozen pipes, lawn, snow etc.) A couple of months ago at our ENCOURAGEMENT, she finally bought a condo in town. We decided the trailer was GONE!!!!!!!!!!! (well that decision may have been the driving force behind her moving)

    One of my sons in law had a friend who said he wanted it and would move it to a spot 40 miles away and restore it and set it up for his son. We told him, it was his FREE!

    For the past couple of months we have been readying it for the move (put the wheels and tongue back on it and get it back on the ground. Yesterday morning Gary came over and we moved it onto the driveway, ready for it's final journey to it's new home. I THOUGHT we could use the bobcat but it kinda laughed at us when I tried to lift the tongue. We borrowed my neighbors old John Deere (4020?...I think) and Gary, my wife and I finally got it out of the spot where it had been and onto the hard packed gravel driveway.

    Oh...and tomorrow I get cataract surgery on the second eye.

    Watch out, you're going to have to turn in your hillbilly card by getting rid of the single wide. Be much better if your turned it into a chicken coop.
    Just because you won't listen to reason does not mean I have to listen to idiocy.

    So how do you make a chicken? Never mind live streaming or even good old fashioned videoing.
    As teenage kids we were told about an adult video where a guy was doing something to a chicken that could only be described as attempted impregnation.
    Obviously NSFW

    That mobile home + a few dozen 55 gallon steel barrels + basic welding skills = one sweet houseboat!

    Two words - duct tape

    Lots and lots of duct tape. Or maybe duck tape, since it'll be in the water.

    I had no idea you were giving away free houses. Damn. Too bad that thing is bigger than our property.

    Good luck with the eye surgery!
