    Yeah when the stock rubs and leans against the fence they will pop and out the stock goes...

    Hey we use to do fencing for a living....And of course have stock for 40+ yrs...
    Of course the fencing looks nicer that way..But just woes with live stock...:D

    An excerpt from William Least Heat-Moon's River-Horse;

    I told Pilotis of my visit there a year earlier when, at my late father's request, I looked in on his elderly colleague Miss so-and-so whose quiet elegance time had diminished but not erased, now living alone, rarely leaving her house, a place desperate for light and fresh air. She set out a pot of thin tea and limber Saltines and was pleased with the company, but whenever our conversation paused, from apparent habit she would lift the receiver of her rotary-dial phone, although it hadn't rung, and hold it gingerly to her ear for several moments, then say softly, "Hello?" Waiting, then, "Anyone there?" Perhaps noticing my quizzical look after the fourth pickup, she said to me, "Just checking." I nodded, and she added, "It doesn't ring often, so maybe the bell doesn't always work." She mentioned Mr. Such-and-such whom my father had to give a pink slip years ago: "Yes," she said, "he joined the Silent Majority." I said, I had no idea he, of all people, had turned religious. She: "He didn't turn religious, he died." I see. "Yes, liquor finally took him." How old was he? "Ninety-seven." When I got up to leave, I mentioned my plans for crossing the country by water, and she asked if I would go through Canada, and I said no, and she: "Yes, that's probably good. When I think of Canada, nothing comes to mind."

    The best ones usually don't. I hope nothing bad happened.

    Richard has pnuemonia, Carol spent the day in Chapel Hill with him. I am on-call, so had to stay kind of close to work.
