Snakeroot

Snakeroot is a noxious weed that is poisonous to cattle. It will kill them if they eat enough, but not before the cows concentrate the toxins in their milk, which can be fatal to humans who drink it. Milk poisoning is believed to have killed Abraham Lincoln's mother, although the connection wasn't known until early in the 20th century. Five or six years ago my mother, a farm girl, set me to getting rid of the stuff around our house. This is the result of several hours of pulling it out four years ago:

Each fall since I've gone around the property and pulled all I could find, which was considerably less each time. This year all I've found so far can easily be held in a fist. I may live long enough to see it gone. Of course it will probably come back, but it won't bother me then.

EVERYTHING's easy for the guy who doesn't have to do it.

Jim, I think you can still beat the root.

Thanks, Guys! I need the encouragement!

And no, I don't recall having a nickname in high school, but later I became "Bait." Can't remember how that got stuck on me.
