I was searching for an evil tool to eradicate the couch & paspalum grass and came across this website. An unnamed person penned that "cares melt when you kneel in your garden" and I would make add that cares also melt when you live rurally, our dogs and cats would agree. Watching the dogs have the run of a couple of acres, and the cats emerge from sleep in the long grass [its actually clumps of tough tall grass with wheat like heads on it, and a right challenge to get rid of, dont know what its called but its going to be history]. Coming home to the countryside is welcome respite from the town job. And gumboots are my favourite footwear. Not having neighbours encroaching on our lifestyle [and of course us encroaching on theirs] is absolute bliss. [;)]

hear hear.. 100% agree..best part of my day is coming home from city, after sitting in traffic on m.way for an hour.. to be met by happy chickens sprinting to the car to see what i have for them to eat..( i take home left over lunches from work :) )

the only thing better would be to be one of my cats!.. talk about a life of luxury..would never want to take them back to the city

Same for me - I come home from work out west and my chickens and turkeys rush up and the fantail doves swoop over my head back and forth - till I get the message............... BUT its nearly dark when I get home now - hardly any time to see them! Will get harder as winter goes on. Thank goodness I only work 4 days now - three days to just cruise around home............
