I'm posting this as it might just possibly be my last night on earth. Tomorrow at 9am I will be plunging 2 enormous hypodermic needles into one of my husbands enormous pet pigs. The old man is on holiday in Blighty and his beloved boar has come down with a virus. His first set of treatments went without a hitch but today when the vet arrived, he hid in his arc and tried to bite the vet when ever he came near. His sister then place herself in the door way and also lunged at the vet when ever he came near. So guess who has got to administer the penicillin and steriods - moi. A farmer is coming tomorrow morning, to observe and should the need arise, drag my lifeless body from the pen if things go wrong. Tonight, I have eaten a hearty meal and enjoyed a glass of wine and have considered if there was anything I still had to do. And the answer was a resounding - dam right!
That sounds more like it comes from the list of things you never thought you'd find yourself doing.
Good luck with that!
You should have saved that wine for the boar. Best wishes.
Don't think I didn't think of plying wine because I did! I think it's karma because the boar was bought for a hog roast but Mark fell in love with him and so he is now an adult, (though thankfully not entire,) large black / wild boar cross. He's usually a sweetie but his dad's away and he's feeling rotten. Thanks for your support.

The most important thing you should consider over anything else is how you treat others. It's great to find God, but it's more important to just BE A GOOD PERSON. It's what everyone should strive for first. Not money. Not beauty. Not knowledge. At the end of the day, all you really have is what you...

Is there a real difference between having a "midlife crisis" and pursuing items on a "bucket list"?A 50 year old man who buys a Corvette is often accused of having a "midlife crisis". However in all honesty this may have been a dream of his since childhood and when he...
