Next month we have been here a year. In that year we have only met one person out here in our little community. There are about forty homes with each having two to five acres and we do not know any of them.
So the wife and her friend Rhonda came up with an idea of having a "Winter welcome, get to know your neighbor fish fry" next month, at our house. I was not to keen on the idea at first but ended up wanting to do it.
I made up some fliers this week and last night the wife and Rhonda went door to door passing them out. When they returned I was alarmed when the first thing they said was "There are some real weird people that live here, I don't think this was a good idea".
All we were trying to do was get to know some of the people we see every day but never talk too. They said that some of the people that have lived here for ten years just laughed and said we were crazy for doing it.
The bad thing is, with everyone having fliers, we are now committed. Now my anxiety about this is up and I have been racking my brain on how to get out of it.
I think we are just going to have to bite the bullet and go through with it and hope for the best, or rain. You would think I would have learned not to do that kind of stuff by now.
On a lighter note, the eggs are hatching. We have four so far and surly more are to come.
The wife sold a rooster today which makes me very happy and you will not believe this, she also sold some crickets. Yea, no kidding, I was floored. I now have a regular customer and making money on crickets. Who would have thunk it?
Pics of the new chick tomorrow.
