  11. @momheinan … You’re right about country living, I wouldn’t trade for a 10 million dollar home in the city. Glad you enjoy the vids and thank you……Donald

  12. Hi! I’ve been watching as many of your videos as I can today, my first visit. One great little video led to another and now it’s been hours watching, learning, laughing, and lovin’ it. Thank you so much, Donald. I raised my four kids on a two and a half acre “mini farm” and I agree… it is far and away THE BEST lifestyle. I’m 50-something-er-other now, and still loving organic gardening on 1/3 acre. Thanks again for all the great tips and laughs. Love those dogs! :>) slowinidaho
