21. What is your self sufficient specialty? Or what one would you like to learn?
Not sure I really have a specialty yet, bit I like to learn new things and try new things! Plus I'm always trying to reduce reuse and recycle just about everything! (I make a lot of art things and crafts that way!) I like to dabble a lot, so I guess a little bit of everything :)

22. If you could create a degree and curriculum, what would you major in and what classes would you take?

Hmmm.... I've not much thought of collage as at this time its too much $$$ and not enough of a return. But if I were to spend the money I think id take vet classes (so I could properly treat/diagnose my animals)

23. Do you do wood work? framing, finish, cabinet?

I'm not really much good with work working but I'm learning ;) my current experience is with cutting/shaping boards for glass mosaics. I've also made a cover for a turtle tank and a chicken roost that's starting to fall apart (I don't think my cuts were even entirely! :'( )

24. Are you interested in herbal medicine?

ABSOLUTELY!!!! Especially with how many side effects concocted drugs have! Plus if a shtf situation happened eventually drugs will run out and I am no doctor I couldn't tell one pill from another all mixed up!
Little side note, Did you know a guy named Simpson made a cannibus oil (called Simpson oil) that fights against and can cure cancer?!? (Please check it out if you've time or know someone with cancer who wants nothing to do with chemo!!!)

25. If you could live any place you chose, where would it be?

Hmmmmm, someplace with at least a few acres (max 10-15) four seasons (preferably light winters- but that is a dream there lol!) And soil without too many rocks :) oh! And most important! Cool neighbors for which to spend time with and trade homemade goodies! ;)

You need to crop that pic and put that chick in for the caption contest.

Soooo, today's been to interesting.
Was getting ready for work and mom messaged my dad got hurt at work and he was going to urgent care/hospital.
He's got a broken knee and is scheduled tomorrow or Monday at latest for surgery.... Which is a super long time to wait if you ask me -_-

Also may be getting rabbits!!! Woot! Which means rabbit stew once they get settled and breeding well :)

Also more picture of the cuties!!!

Sending positive thoughts for your dad. Hope everything goes well. :fl
Thank you!!! He's going in for surgery right now, so thankfully they could get him in quick. I can only imagine the pain he's in right now even with painkillers! (Last October my leg got ran over just above and below my knee, I got lucky very lucky! No broken bones, no fracture just terrible bruising and swelling.) Hopefully he'll heal up well because dad does not like laying around doing nothing and knowing him he's gonna get bored really fast with doctors restrictions.

with a broken knee, he'd better pay attention to those restrictions or he will be suffering for a lot longer!

I know! He's stubbern though :/ if he wants to go do things he's going to do it regardless. Couple months back ghostybdad wore shorts and a sleeveless shirt while boating on the lake. He got horrific sunburns, the doctor said they were 3rd degree and he needed to remain in bed and do as little work as possible. He was out putzing round the yard three days later giving himself issues
