JUST A NOTE

IT WAS SO HOT AND HUMID TODAY THAT I RELUCTANTLY WENT OUTSIDE ON MAGGIE'S NECESSARY TRIPS.

PUPPY SPENT THE WEEKEND GAMING ON THE COMPUTER AND PRINCE BUSH HOGGED SOME PATHS FOR THE HAY MAN AND AROUND THE POND. TO NOT HAVE HAD MUCH RAIN THE FIELDS SURE ARE HIGH.

THE HAY MAN TOLD PRINCE HE WOULD BE HERE MAYBE NEXT WEEK. HE CUTS AND BAILS THE HAY .THEN HE SELLS THE HAY. WE GET NICE CUT FIELDS. A VERY GOOD TRADE.

WE HAD COWS FOR YEARS BUT WHEN THE BACK SIDE OF THE FARM WAS SOLD WE SOLD ALL THE CATTLE AS WE DID NOT WISH TO FENCE THE PROPERTY.

FOR AWHILE, GARY CHAPMAN'S CAMEL WITH ITS FAMILY OF SHEEP WOULD WONDER OVER AND THEN HE WOULD COME AND HERD THEM BACK ON HIS GATOR.

SOME DOGS FROM A SUB DIVISION CHASED CAMILE THE CAMEL AND SHE RAN OFF INTO A RAVINE AND BROKE HER POOR NECK. IT WAS ALWAYS FUN TO LOOK OUT AND SEE HER AND HER LITTLE GROUP OF SHEEP FOLLOWING HER. IT WAS REALLY SAD WHAT HAPPEN TO HER.

NOW ALL WE HAVE WONDERING THE FARM ARE A FEW STRAY DOGS AGAIN FROM NEIGHBORING SUBDIVISIONS , COYOTES, DEER, TURKEY, RACCOONS, GRAY AND FOX SQUIRRELS , RED FOX AND AT ONE TIME A BOBCAT.

THE BOBCAT WOULD WALK THE FENCE LINE BETWEEN THE HOUSE AND WHITE BARN AND OCCASIONALLY I WOULD SEE HIM. HE LIVED NEAR THE POND AND ONE COLD WINTERS DAY, THE POND WAS FROZEN AND A LIGHT SNOW HAD FALLEN . HIS FOOTPRINTS AND THE MOUSE HE WAS CHASING WERE ALL OVER THE FROZEN POND. UNFORTUNATELY, HE WAS A VICTIM OF OUR BUSY ROADWAY A FEW YEARS BACK.

THE KITTY JUSTICE WAS WE ALL HAD A VERY NICE SUNDAY. HOPE Y'ALL DID TOO.

Hi Lady Di ~~ I used to enjoy watching the hay balers at work and
have seen the small rectangle ones and the huge round rolls. My son in law lost his arm in a baler mishap.
I used my new washer today and will get used to the different beeps and lights on it. I hope you enjoy yours, when it arrives on Thursday. You sure
have had it hot over there. Take care, drink lots of water or fluids
Love, Merle.
