I am aware there are things about Sticks & Bricks living that I will miss. Not many, and they will be correctly jettisoned, but here they are:
chickens - I really like chickens. Each spring for the past several years I have raised chicks from the egg in an incubator or bought as day-olds. This year I didn’t do it because I am focusing my efforts and resources here.
dream bike - maybe I have low standards but my dream bike would be an old BMW R65 or R80. I won’t have the garage area for such a beast and so it’s time to let that go, too.
operating a tractor - although I don’t particularly like mowing fields I really like my old Kubota tractor. She just keeps working. No frills, as doG intended.
