    Critter Carrots Back On Schedule
    Due to circumstances beyond my control (and I hate that), the critters’ carrot treats schedule (which is whenever baby Buckwheat cries for one) has been uncontrollably off-schedule due to our bouts with the flu, the snow and now, the mud … but mainly, the flu bug.
    This last week, things have improved (flu bug reluctantly moved out, the snow melted and my army boots can handle the mud).

    ‘Sneaky Pete,’ the Wily
    Wolf …
    …the Homestead wild critter, is back in the neighborhood! After several months of us being concerned that something had happened to him, Sneaky Pete was seen visiting in our across-the-road neighbors’ back yard.
    Neighbor Debbie Ward called to say she saw him in their backyard sniffing around and then seemed to be chewing on something. She said that she was so stunned at seeing him, that she didn’t think to take a picture.
