Re: Omg i hate that guy so much(warning, touches on disgusting evil topics briefly)

Ms Bug..I am NOT criticizing in ANY WAY..please don't take it that way! Just look what you put as your "location" Smack-dap in "good 'ol boy" land...things are still..ummmm..not up to speed as most areas. BUT I have tremendous pride in what you and hubbs are doing! Where would all of these critters be without the two of you?? I shudder to think.

The budgie breeder I got 4 from tried to convince me that wing clipping will make a bird sterile and unable to reproduce.... after we explained my wife has worked in the veterinary field for 20 years. That's just how people are I suppose.

LOL I wish. Then I would just have to clip Hima's wings and never worry about her deciding to lay an egg! I worry with her splay legs that laying could be quite dangerous for her.

Wow. I've heard some "old husband's tales" before but that just about takes the biscuit!

Oh my God... sounds like this is a lesson he apparently learned through experience... this makes me cry!
