Does a whole gallon just roll under the seat out of site? :lol:

She had a Corilla station wagon with two baby seats and essential mom stuff. Quite a collection in the back of the car.

On a shopping trip a grocery bag tipped and the gallon of milk slid under her pile of essential mother's baby traveling paraphernalia. Hidden for over a week, in the summer, of a car.

Never burst. I could smell it, luckily stilled contained in the plastic jug.



Be happy it worked out - wife dumped 5 gallons of diesel into the back seat of her car.

Guess who drives it now?

That smell will never go away

Bez... I think the smell of diesel is better than the smell of tomcat that pizzed under the seat of my truck.. fabreeze don't do squat!

We eat mostly hard cheeses, Gruyere is our favorite

When I was raising my four boys a gallon of milk was .99 seems like we went through 2 gallons a week.

I've tipped over a gas can full of gas in the back of a mini van. There's some eye burning fumes that will stay with you for a while.

Yep, it could get lost in my car also! (Not under baby stuff though.!) I hate those darn shopping bags for that! (I blame them!) :D

I better watch out for that bobcat!... That was when she had her first calf... she's got a little more "reserve capacity" now

And 5 years later, I still get the occasional whiff of tomcat in my truck... though I think I've nearly spilled enough coffee to mask it now

Take it from a jersey guy, get a goat. :mrgreen: Seriously, with all the garden scraps and tree prunings you have a goat can eat for free and still crank out the milk. A milk cow is great on the days when you feel like messing with a milk cow but a goat is still tolerable on the days when you don't have time to mess with a cow and the output is more manageable for a single family.

CP, yes, that is true.. but with the amount he drinks, I'm wondering if they might not need 2 jerseys!... I like the fact that I can leave the milk in the cow until I need it, and get it when I want it... In the summertime I'm usually too busy to milk anyhow, and our fridge isn't big enough

I don't think I ever had goats milk my daughter had to drink it as a baby maybe I will try some. Goats are hard to keep in though.

BS, proper fencing will hold them with no problems. Either electric or field fence will work. It just has to be tailored to goats instead of cows or horses.
