Your workday reminded me of my youth on the farm in Michigan (we had goats and horses too). Both my parents were lifelong farmers and while I loved the lifestyle, I have to admit that because of my farm days, I hate chickens, despise them except on a grill....has something to do with cleaning out the chicken coop in the spring.

That means it's ok for me to write about what I'm doing,

I'm *not* working on tech writing! Instead I'm feeding the horses,
getting the cheap digital camera to interface with my computer,
and jawboning a truck-repair shop that is trying to charge me
about eight times the amount that it should have. Oh, and I have
to go any buy more horse feed now that it's stopped raining.

I also have the list of top-priority stuff that's not getting
done because I'm doing things that are ahead of top priority.
Is that an unusual sitution, or does everyone's life have such
a list? Like f'rinstance the GLUNK noise from the left front
wheel when turning while parked. Or the goats that are overdue
for their deworming medicine. Or the pile of urgent paperwork.
