I did not trap this past year due to the suggestion of my cardiologist. Today my wife, my daughter and I mucked the stable. We do it by hand, we shovel the old sawdust on wheelbarrows, dump the wheelbarrows and put fresh sawdust in by hand. I will be 75 in a month and a half. I managed to help with the mucking and did not experience any chest pains what so ever. This fall I think I will be back on the trap line.


I want to grow my own food but I can't find bacon seeds.

Great to hear, remember do not try and eat an elephant in one sitting. Great to hear you will be laying some steel this fall.

Well if i'd known that Ninny i'd have sent computerhater over there to carry you around on his back set to set & get you out mink trapping . He'd probably even carried the blue buckets & skinned mink.

Get back in shape , see you in Clearfield .
