I probably should have been fencing, or working in the shop or something this afternoon, but instead, me and my 2 oldest boys,(14 and 16) went shooting gophers(Richardson's ground squirrels). We justified it by saying that this had at least as much economic value to our operation as actually working. It is,after all, Sunday afternoon and them gophers can clean off many acres of feed or pasture if you don't control them!!!
Anyway, we put 3 lawn chairs on the deck of my old one-ton Ford, grabbed some guns and some cold drinks and had agreat afternoon.We found some arrowheads,got rid of a LOT of gophers, and generally had a good time.
No wonder most of us are willing to live on a little less cash when we can enjoy life like this!!!
