    Hurray! Chalk another one up for the Obama administration!

  3. Yes, I was hoping this would happen with the new administration but then was not so sure… Now I won’t have to be an outlaw!

    Great! Seems like it’s only logical. By the way, I don’t quite know how they were going to track goldfish, carp, pheasants, and beavers. But if I were looking for a job I’d like to be the government agent that had to tag pet boa constrictors. Every week I’d claim I tagged 23 and never have to worry about some bean counter checking up on me.
    Seriously, that really was a stupid plan and I’m glad it’s dropped.

    • The boa constrictor idea is a good one but thankfully no longer necessary. Now they will have to find something else to waste time and money on. It is not entirely over though since now it goes to the states to figure out what they want to do. We will have to see what Chris says.

    Great news. I chose to be a farmer to get away from numbers and counting. I use to manage IRA’s and CD’s, for a local bank. Walked away when I had my kids to stay at home on the farm for the good life. I’m sure they are going to try to figure out someway to stick there nose in. We will see, but for now I’m enjoying the good life.

  6. Kathy,

    That is a good attitude, and it sounds like you made a great life change. Enjoy!
