It's all about Big Ben

My buddy Jim Shirey just picked up Ben's birthday present in Dallas today.  Jim has been a frequent TFL visitor over the years and recently bought property near me.  He is a long haul trucker for Raider Express with his base of operations being out of the Dallas/Ft. Worth area.  Last time he asked me if there was anything he could bring out when he comes in August, I really took advantage of the offer and suggested this item.  A deluxe scratching post for Big Ben. Benny is working on his carbon footprint by getting a re-purposed street sweeper brush to rub against (he produces about 100 kg of methane per year). FYI - most of the methane from a bovine comes from burps, not farts.  98,106,79,0,C

Big Ben oughta love this. I think I read somewhere that a dairy farmer got more output from his cows after installing a back scratcher brush on a low tree limb.

Oh, every person I know would benefit from an object like this. I sometimes am called upon for sage advice of muscles, arthritis etc, problems and then they agree I can feel the areas of pain. oh Lordie... If only they knew how easy to ease problems cheaply. Lucky Ben
