For good or bad, I was serious. My dad was not a nice person when he had been drinking. And yes us kids were scared until the animals went on the offensive.
We didn't get much for Christmas but we got plenty of apology gifts.

Sorry about your dad. I thought you might be kidding about the attacking catfish, not your dad.

No worries. It does sound almost unbelievable.
Animals and fish are amazing.
Oh and as far as my dad goes, parents divorced in 1979. Thank God.
Dad died in 1998.

I came across an article. Since today is Valentine's Day, I thought you might like to take a look. Happy shopping in case you failed to get that special present for your loved one yet.

Cool link but I think you are either 4 months late or shopping 8 months early.
Though at our house every day is Valentines day.

The only excuse I have is that I just woke up and still haven't put my glasses on. So sorry. But at least you now have plenty of time.

What am I doing?
Smelling vinegar and cut weeds.
I had a plastic container I had left onions in. So I did the baking soda paste and let it soak overnight. Since I now have the baking soda paste, I decided I might as well clean out my sink drains. To get the vinegar hot, I decided to run it through the coffee pot and steamers.
Oh and the field next door just got mowed.
