Der are I’ve personally seen a big foot. He stood 8ft tall just staring at me and then ran.
I've never seen a bigfoot, but I was hiking in the Maine woods back in the early 80's when something roared at me so loud it stopped me in my tracks. I can't imagine what it was, but I've seen many bears and black bears don't make that sound.....

Princeton in Northeastern Maine is a beautiful place with a beautiful lake (with a funny name) But the lake may not be as peaceful as it seams. In the 1880's people reported seeing an enormous snake like creature that not only lived in the lake but also occasionally would slither ashore leaving a deep mud trail from the water. Today still claim to see the monster and have named him Poco.

Thdars a nutther one head of a moose, half man half eagle. bet thdair thing can roar the poops out of ya.

April 12th ducks and chickens arrive at the local feed store. Have most of the set up ready to get them going. Some of the field is plowed, and turnips planted,..........but all this rain has me wondering when I will get back out there and if I put out the greens only to get them washed away in all the rain.

LOL you’ll eventually get back out there. Not gonna rain forever. Put your greens out, if your a good gardener your plants will be strong and not wash away. Lol

,.....I could have written that a bit clearer I already have seed out, a lot of seed. Just spread out over tilled soil. With all the rain I am sure that a good part of the seeds have ended up in the lowest drain out point.
No big deal really I buy turnip seed by the pound. Most of the planting will be in the next few weeks if it stops raining for while.

Lady on TV news having a 100th birthday party was milking a cow like she did as a youngster.
Spry old lady for sure.

In 1883 my grandfather was 16yrs old. This was the year that he left the family farm in Southern Manitoba to homestead on his own. All granddad had was a team of horses, a milk cow and seed. That first winter he drank and ate nothing but milk and turnips. He lived to 101yrs so I have a couple of memories of him, only of our Sunday visits to his bedside at the nursing home.
After eating only turnips for a winter, one would think he would have began hating that veggie but no, grandad wanted his turnips at every family gathering.
Dad and grandad had two large farms to operate and they were about 100 miles apart so twice a year all the machinery was moved back and forth between the farms. Mom didn't know what she was in for when she married dad. lol
One fall mom got stuck riding shotgun with grandpa returning to the farm here at Calgary. Once in the yard grandma was on the porch to greet everybody and was confronted by mom flying out of granddad's truck and running at my grandma screaming, "Don't you ever make me ride with that old man again, he's gonna kill me!
Granddad always drove his vehicles like he had just stolen them.

Seems some have wondered away for my orginal thought about April being here and the season switching in the north any way to a nice spring, time to wander in the fields and woods gathering etabiles and such.

Now some have gotten to talking about fall alread. the fall time of peoples lives it seems.
Yes I was the fool who contrubited to that also.
Who is a friend or related to the oldest person in the world still alive and not on life support?

So true and you also brought up the 1880s and some fantasy creature that was sighted. Well I actually knew a creature who was homesteading in the 1880's.
Yes it is now April, funny as heck how that happens every year Mr. twister.

And I sit here watching radar with a 70% chance of tornados within 50 miles of me, reading posts and listening to thunder. I am reminded of my Grandfather, a depression baby, in response to a decision question I was asking as a 14 year old, responding "Do what you need to do today".
