Cows and onions..been there done that, we had a herd of Holsteins, they got out one day and headed straight for the onion patch, I do not believe I ever saw my father so upset. But if you drink enough of it "onion milk" has an interesting flavor.

OK, this could go on forever...

Things I hate:

1.  Stupid drivers who are texting while driving.
2.  Rigid Conservatives who cannot find it in their heart to share anything with the poor.
3.  Painting anything except pictures.
4.  $12.00 hamburgers.  WTF?
5.  Gerrymandering by both parties.
6.  Liars and politicians.  Or am I being redundant?
7.  People who only take and never give.
8.  Plumbing repairs.  Why do I always end up standing on my head to reach something?
9.  Crooked eBay merchants.  Grrrrr...
10. Rich and powerful people who did not earn their own fortune but act like they did.
11. Fire Ants.
12. FIRE ANTS!!!!!
13. Fire works at 2:00 AM on July 5.
14. Any Extremist.
15. Cable TV.

Enough, it's lunch time.
A hand made, tin reflector oven will cost you a car payment.  That is why those nifty cast iron pots with legs and flat lids (call it what you want) are so popular.
Interesting, good post. The enclosed dutch oven/reflector oven is something i would be interested in purchasing. Knowing what a bake kettle is adds to picture when reading about the fur trading days and other western history.

I feel a 'wolfy story' coming on. :rolleyes:

Back in the late '60s there were a couple of brothers who farmed together near our place.  They had an old john boat that they used to net-fish the backwaters and sloughs along the Missouri River.  One night their luck took a turn for the worse and they ended up with a heavy net full of quillback.  After hours of untangling the spiny-backed sunzabiches from their net, they took several washtubs of them back to their farm and threw them over the fence to the hogs.  Several months later, they took a fattened shoat to the local slaughterhouse to renew their larders.....all of the bacon and pork chops tasted strangely like fish!  Funny thing was, since they were both quite frugal, they ended up eating it anyway.  One of them said (and I'm not lying here)...."It wasn't TOO bad."  :shrug:

My dad remembers the milk cows getting into the onion patch and the milk tasted like onions, none of the kids would drink it so my grandpa had to go buy milk. I remember my mom serving us liver, telling us kids it was steak, we would not touch it and finally day telling my mom "give it up honey, they are not buying it." She was so mad, "how did i raise such picky children" It was the only thing she ever made that we would not eat.

Ha Ha Tony, that is a good list. 

An idiot is someone who drives slower than I do.  A maniac is someone who drives faster.

Like OP I dislike painting unless it is on a girls body.
Things I can't stand:

spraying weeds
inaccurate rifles
liberals and socialists
dull knives
hearing aid batteries
loud people
hail larger than the size of a pea
and a host of other things
