    Trivia: Today begins the year of the horse, so who knows, without looking it up on the internet, what was the name of cowboy Gene Autry’s horse? Remember The Lone Ranger had Silver and Roy Rogers had Trigger. Come on Americans, don’t let an European beat you on this one. Just for fun…..

    Well, I guess we know who was watching television while I was pitching hay bales. We had a mule named Champion, I wonder...

    Ha Ha NO TV but we had a very good, Saturday Morning Cinema for kids. Cowboy films were always the best. Of course when we went home, we all re- enacted the film of the day. Misspent Youth, NO way, got my First learning of you Guys from those days.


    :p and suffered ever since :o ( Kidding )

    Nearest theater to us was 30 miles of rough mountain road away. To this day I have never owned a television!

    A powered hay bailer, wow. This is how we plowed, planted and harvested 40 acres of rocks.

    If this was the original vehicle you used, you had a pretty fancy setup, with a pick up and delivery system that trails behind the wagon, I would not have minded riding on top and distribute the hay evenly...

    Well, with the somewhat c...p programmes and bad reception, you are still not missing out.

    We have one but it goes off, when we have visitors, definatley kills any Conversations.
    Our monster will use headphones, if she still wants to watch. In the main though, she is respectful on this.(Which surprises me:confused:)
