Hi Bernice,

No problem. I actually used the cut & paste method for all of that so my job was basically just finding the information. I should probably post it into the articles section as well just for reference. Speaking of posting things, I need to get your GoatWorld Spotlight information posted soon (I did not forget).

Your son sounds alot like me in ways except that he got smart and became a plumber and earned some money at a relatively young age. It took me a few years and I think every dime I ever made went right back into those amplifiers and guitars. I'm lucky I'm not deaf from it all (Pam says I am but it's a "selective deafness" you know :-) ).

Something I do to help my hands from aching is to soak them in hot water alot and sleep on them under my pillow. As long as I keep them nice and warm they don't hurt as much. But if I ever go without using them for an extended period of time, they hurt like the dickens.

Milking for me was not easy at first because with our goats, they were very uncooperative - even with a bucketful of grain in front of them. So at first I had to bend over the top of them and milk backwards. Well you can imagine how that was. I finally got them calmed enough to where I could sit on a bucket and milk with little difficulty. From time to time one or two of them will put their foot in the milk bucket and get a bit unruly but it's getting better. The only part that hurts from time to time are my thumbs.

Well, hope that milking machine shows up soon. They had the tornado boxes lit up for awhile up here in Christian, Stone and Taney counties but we mainly got wind, rain and hail. Hopefully you stayed safe and dry.

Best regards,

Gary Pfalzbot
