I thought I’d update you on our coyote problem. A hint: it’s been solved! To explain that, I’d like to introduce you to our friend Al. No, not my Dad, Al; although he is definitely a friend of the farm, but Al T. – sharp shooter extraordinaire. (WARNING: This post contains content that may be considered objectionable by some.

Tomorrow is the 2nd Sunday in the season of Advent. I suppose the Christmas season is going to go as quickly as the rest of this year seemed to. We blinked and it was December. How is such a thing possible? It may be better than dragging along slowly during a pandemic. Perhaps others’ year has poked along, not ours though.
Today we have a game for you. As we all recover from our Thanksgiving day activities (yes, we’re still recovering), I thought that a fun little seek and find game would be an easy activity for everyone.
Thumper wants to know “where da party at?” and more importantly, is he invited? He was sad to find out that Sue and Kay were only visiting to say hello, not to have him join them for dinner. (Photo Credit: Kay)
We had some great friends come for a weekend visit. We did some touring around the county, drank some local beer, met and picnicked with the men and women of the historic “B Troop” from Fort Huachuca, enjoyed a meal at the German Cafe and a farm dinner on the veranda. I think it was so great, we should relive it right now! Don’t you????Continue reading
“Reptiles have silly grins
Dark eyes–shiny teeth–some have fins
Samurai they smile never
Serious–pretty swords–very clever”
Any Oingo Boingo fans out there? They were one of my first concerts as a teenager — loved them! However, now whenever I hear the word “reptile” these lyrics go through my head. (I’ll put a link to the song at the end.) Sue doesn’t get these references when I make them, she just looks at me and shakes her head, who can blame her? Where am I going with this? Not sure, but I have been going through photos and discovered we see lots of of reptiles.
I was sent this in a text today from one of our customers:
No eggs today, my love has gone away
The carton stands forlorn, a symbol of the dawn
No eggs today, it seems a common sight
But people passing by, don’t know the reason why.
Literally. These are chicken shorts! I’d like a pair, in case you’re looking for an early Christmas present. Even though these are super cute – what the title really refers to are short films. This may be a cop-out, but I am premiering two videos here today as the blog. We can talk about other things later in the week, but it’s late so this will do for tonight.Continue reading
Once, a long while ago, my friends John and Bernadette and I were in Louisiana and went to Avery Island (where they make Tobasco) to go onto the wildlife preserve. When you get there, you go to a toll-house to pay your day use fee; they give you a pass and a “caution”. They literally say, “Here’s your pass and here’s your caution.” The caution says something like, “Alligators are dangerous. Do not picnic along the banks. Do not feed the alligators.” If you ask, they will tell you horrible things that have happened. They serve as cautionary tales for the stupid tourists who are just not wise enough to stay away from wildlife. Well, I may have a couple tales for you – maybe a bit on the cautionary side – maybe just a bit of silliness. Continue reading
What’s summer without road trips? Well, we mostly know the answer to that question now, don’t we? A summer without road trips is a summer at home. Luckily – there are quite a few acres here for us to roam around on. Sue is really the one that roams around though. We did take a short road trip last Saturday out to Naco and back, with a quick stop at Patagonia Lake, where they simply turned us around because even the day use area was full. I think there is a great deal of cabin fever going on right about now. Let’s talk about some other trips going on. Continue reading
Well, it has been an eventful few days. sometimes there’s so much that one has difficulty processing. Let’s just talk in little bits today, is that ok with you? Continue reading
