Have you looked at Wade's in Alto? Is he still buying/selling school buses?

More care than hamsters?!?!
We have 16 chickens for egg production...14 hens and 2 Roo's to watch over them. We're getting about a dozen eggs a day right now...lol miscalculated that one, but we do enjoy eating eggs. Anyhow they are not much time or care at all... we set up the coop in our barnlette (it's about the size of a horse stall) and a couple of protected runs for them outside. I go and get eggs and top off water and food in AM check mid day (we have an egg eater that will get them if I don't) and then close the doors in the evening after they have put themselves to bed. We clean the coops about once a week, it takes about half hour. We now supply her workplace with eggs every few days. She who must be obeyed and my 17 YO daughter love going out to spend time with them when they have time. They are cool critters, smarter than you think too. Raising meaties is even easier as I understand it, but more heartbreak than the girls want. Something about "raising and loving an animal to kill and eat" that they are not sure they can manage...
Anyhow chickens are a good thing, and quite entertaining. Did I mention they are great insect control?

Of course you can always run into Johnson City, stop at Sam's and buy a case of whole chickens to do that with. OR drive the bus to Sam's Club, park in their parking lot, spend the night and have their $5 cooked rotisserie chicken for supper. To cook or not to cook?

ME? I would rather stop at Primo's and have some garlic knots and the Spicy Bowtie Chicken. I can park at Wal-Mart and walk across the street. I do miss that restaurant.

On edit... Just thinking about it makes me wonder if Das Mel & I shouldn't swing a little north for a bit of food in October. I LOVE the Spicy Bowtie Chicken.

How long have you worked for the county? Wade has a few good buses if you can catch Walter. He drives for Banks so you know how the schedules goes.

You need to schedule your visits to Wades around school holidays and most usually anytime after 3:00 in the afternoon. We got our bus from him and he has been very helpful. I'm not sure what or how things are going over there right now. His brother got into a motorcycle accident awhile back and I think they had to close the place down for a month or two once school started back.

We never really scheduled our visits over there, just usually showed up late afternoon and have caught him there everytime.

Not long, about 5 months. I did stop by there once but I guess whoever was running the shop that day didn't like the way I dressed, talked or could just tell I wasn't a distant relative of his... Gave me the "your not from around here" vibe. Sad thing is I am a native Georgian, but grew up in the city so I have no accent, so I have been told. My father in law said one brother at wades was helpful and the other was not... Guess it wasn't Walter I met

Yeah, Johnny is the other brother, Walter runs the place. Johnny isn't very helpful, when he is there.

Have you met a drivers assistant for the special needs bus, named Tavenier. Some times he has long hair, sometimes short, some times a beard, other times not, but always dirty blonde?
