Re: Are you ever belittled for your frugal ways?

SandiSAHM, I wish I had just a couple of layers of your thick skin. ;) I've always been a very shy person and usually just listen and not say anything. That is, unless I miss a dose of my meds or I'm in a lot of pain. I've always been looked down on in the family because I have always thought differ...

Are you ever belittled for your frugal ways?

Re: Bottle Calves :)

Congrats on the calves! I was raised on a farm and I got to feed the bottle calves. My younger brother took care of grinding the feed for the milk cows and I got the job that I really loved. We had quite a few calves on bottle most of the time and I loved the job. I still miss it. My son was fortuna...
