When Newbies like me read these posts...
....it makes me realize there's no sense in continuing the game. If you can't progress, and everything that helps you in the game is taken away, what's the point? Too bad, I was enjoying Farm Story, but I'm done playing now. Back to my usual games...
I understand totally where you are coming from! I have not reached the point (or pond, mine, beehive, train) where many of these people are posting from. So, when (and if) I reach them, I will not know the"good old days".
But that is also why I posted my "Shhhhhh" post. There is hope out ther folks for adayorso of good drop rates!
