How many of you do this? Or do you think it a little nutsy-squirrely? Moved back to Iowa 24 years ago with a new wife and an old attitude I could rekindle. Bought a farm and began once again to live with animals instead of caring for someone else's. Nancy, my wife, is an animal goof ball (I mean that lovingly). We decided not to have kids, don't want kids, don't want to see kids. If you got kids that is your problem, just keep them on your side of the fence and away from me when I go out. Either that or put a muzzle on them. If you got 'em and want 'em I have no problem whatsoever with that. We elected to have pets. A lot of pets over the years. Many, many pets over the years. Some we ate, some we sold, some of 'em we buried. We have a couple of ponds. One is close to the house. A nice pond, but a bad pond. It has a rock bottom and the water comes and goes. But it is pretty. I throw the river fish I catch in it and let them clean up. Gives me an excuse to go fishing twice. I keep one side like a park. Nice bank, planted trees and shrubs, willows, a copse of walnut trees on a rock bank, really purty. In that copse of walnut trees we have established a "Pet Cemetery". Not the kind of cemetery where you plant Fred the gerbil and cry over it with the kids one week and then mow over it the next week. This cemetery has head stones and rock carrions, flowers and actual loving care like it was your Greatgrandmother who left you a half a million bucks. Spanky, Rock, Chick-chick, Jamie, Helen, Fat-cat, Cocky, Cheeks and on and on. It is where Lil tommy is going to go if you are familiar with Lil Tommy. It is where I am going to go when the plug gets pulled on my bathtub. Only I am going to get toasted and Nancy will spread my ashes over those graves. (ashes to ashes, dust to dust). Those walnuts trees will certainly like the nutrients, minus the beer. Do any of you folks maintain a place like this, minus me of course, or do you just dump 'em?
