    Critter Corner
    Callie, The Kitty Adjusting to Move
    Callie, the Kitty, is adjusting to “The Move” (from the south end of the lane to the north end). She goes to the back door when she wants out, but she goes no farther than down the steps, under the small-for-now-porch, down to the east end of the home and, rather hurriedly, back under the porch.

    ... are casting coquettish glances and flirtatious tossing of their heads toward neighbor Scott’s pasture, as there are a couple of handsome-looking young male longhorns living there at present.
    The Homestead gals have even been heard vocally expressing their interest in the neighboring longhorn boys, sounding an awful like they are saying that they are in the “mooood” for love.

    From the Chicken Roost
    R&R (Rest & Relaxation) is apparently over for Rhonda and Blackie (hens), because they have left the roost for the nest area, and have commenced to laying nice, big eggs again. Egg Production is on the upswing and they are evidently going to pass on spring break and stay on the job (or nest, in this case).
    They have been bugging in their little yard and seem content, so they must be finding something in the, at long last, GREEN grass.
    And from the Longhorn Cows Pasture
