MORE WEEKEND PHOTOS
I just wanted to add more random photos from our neat weekend visit to my daughter's new home. No Nancy, we did not take Slim. My daughter doesn't have a fenced yard yet.
Let me add an update about Michael's visit with us. (Remember we kidnapped him and brought him back with us). He has enjoyed computer time, drawing time and inventing time. He made a working crossbow out of wooden skewers, tape, rubberbands and a sewing needle. He painted our fence posts, worked on the porch, helped me in the house. We call him our indentured servant. His mother and Hope will come tonight then they will leave tomorrow and take Michael away! Boo Hoo Hoo!
For your information, David and Goliath (the kittens born in the chicken nest) are doing very well. Goliath is especially funny because he and Slim (our dog) are best friends and put on quite a show most mornings.
Mr. Gibson is definitely a rooster as he sports a nice red comb already. Chicklet is still in question and we're hoping she is a hen because the coyote is depriving us of our hens almost daily. Sad to say Rebecca did not survive her third adventure outside the chicken house. Last night their mother, Elenore Hen, took Mr. Gibson and Chicklet onto the roost for their bedtime.
Who killed the guinea fowl keets? We blamed a snake but caught the female adult guinea in the action of doing the deed. Sadly she got all twelve before we solved the crime.
My living room is complete (except for a few things we have to do) and it is lovely. The only problem with redecorating one room -- you want to do all the rooms!
