    I am absolutely pretending that it is, and I'm spending that YouTube money right now!

    Maybe we can fall under this category:

    "and services necessary for maintaining the safety, sanitation and essential operation of a residence"

    Like today, we had to take out a couple trees for an emergency new septic system for a family of 4.

    Also if we get storms that cause a lot of tree damage, we have to go do that.

    How long is it on for? People are wondering why Gov. Reynolds doesn't shut iowa down on the non-essentials. They apparently don't realize that you do that and you stop the tractors and you now are possibly raising havoc with Iowa's largest industry and there is no such thing as a one year issue. One bad year eats up 3-4 years.

    That would be the normal start of planting for the southern part of Wisconsin.

    Maybe farms could stay operational under this:

    Roles required for any business to maintain minimum basic operations, which includes security, and payroll;

    Cows have to be milked and fed too.

    A guy in front of me in the checkout at menards had at least 70 pieces of lumber on one cart.

    They updated them every few years. The one currently for sale on store shelves is vastly different from mine because it incorporates most of the modern inventions that weren't in every kitchen in 1976 - microwaves, deep fat fryers, insta pots, etc. It's been a while, but most of us had a crock pot if I remember correctly.

    Anything I saw on there was better than what I usually see on the ESPN channels so win win.

    Yesterday they apparently had 'dog' stuff for National Puppy Day and I was sad to have missed it.

    DH loves Euchre and so do our best couple friends. We'd be a perfect foursome if I had any clue how to play.

    I once played a game with a partner who didn't actually know it was a team game.

    @ImJustKCClone @Ms3r4ISU Just for fun the vixen got out her Betty Crocker cookbook last night. Of course it's the 1976 version....so I could have helped you out with that missing page. But Ms3 was the MVP this time!

    I've managed to shoot the squirrel(s) several times with the pellet gun. It stings pretty good, I'm sure.....so now all they have to hear is the click of the latch on the patio door, and they're gone!

    If the vet can stay open you should be able to as well.
