    The Pasture Critters …
    … Betsy Longhorn and her bovine family are enjoying the “Green, Green, Grass of Home,” and it really is green and lush. But they still seem to resent us confiscating part of their pasture. They don’t understand “public domain” (which, I have to confess, I don’t approve of it, either). When we are mowing the yard, they all run to the fence  and follow the mower and person mowing. I personally feel that is their form of a protest.

Bill had went to work, Callie, the kitty, was resting near Bill’s footstool and Josie, the little doggie, was snuggled down in her soft and comfy bed nearby.

    Critters Enjoying Napping in Sunshine…
    … except for Josie, the little 15-year-old doggie. Callie, the kitty, likes to nap on the patio bricks warmed by the sun; the barn critters, Lady, the mini-horse, Madricka, the mother burro, and her young son, Buckwheat (aka Baby Bucky), are often seen resting in the sunshine.
    Bucky, especially, takes frequent naps in the sunshine, which are good for a growing boy.
