  1. How to deal with elderly parents

    wen its time to clean up the house check everything. Dad was great at hiding $ everywere. he said one day at the nursing home '' ya know how I like to keep cash on ice [he winked] went back to the farm and checked all the freezers he has several stashes put up for a rainey day ended up checking every paper,card,magizene, wen we cleared the farm. about the care ,,it cost over 60,000.00 for the last 10 months of his life we paid out of pocket. so it is good advise to get a lawyer to set up the assets there is a 2 year claw back time for assets that are transfered so dont wait.

  2. Ok, spring can come any time now.

    The wind was so strong here on the ridge it blew the back door open [old miners house] the temp was about 40 in the bathroom at 2:30 am [wife was real happy about that] snow any weres from bare ground to knee deep drifts. their saying only 235'' this year but I think its more. hopefully we will not have forest fires,,last year was 0 for the whole season. lots of moisture this winter.

Mike also cleaning out the house is another story for another day
  5. How to deal with elderly parents

    Ya its been a trip, had to move Mom [now 93] from west Ky to up here in the Keweenaw so I can keep an eye on her. promised Dad Id look after her before he passed 10 years ago. have her in a community that is attached to the hospital in town and she is doing great except falling ocasionally. as for my sisters one has passed last year and the other 2 are MIA,,and I am ok with this [easyer to deal with day to day stuff] at least mom is safe and not laying on the floor at their farmstead back in the hills of Ky.[it happened before the move] Mike

  11. Meat wrapping

    We vacume pack everything that is going onto the freezer [prevents frost on the food] just fixed 20 chickens and yes we has a few not seal right so they go on the top of the pile to be used first. the old food saver was tired out so my wife bought a new one on clearance ,, it works great. Mike
  12. We have great neibors

    My wife was heading into work this morning and took the curve a little hard swerved and landed backwards in the snow bank an rowe's corner [about a mile from the house] I ended up hoofing it up there to get her out. Lo and behold Lanny was comming around the next corner with the Cat grader [weighs in at 67,000.#] made really short work of pulling her out of the snow bank. guess who just was added to the wife's bakery list. like I said great neibors Mike
