     “She Came To a Screeching Halt”
    …were the words said by the male human of the Homestead, namely my husband, Bill. He was referring to my busy, busy lifestyle and the sudden stop caused by my episode when I slipped and fell, breaking the fibula in my left ankle.

    We were in Decatur on Saturday, having went there for a post-Thanksgiving dinner, but rather than go to a hospital emergency room there, I wanted to be taken care of by our own staff in Vandalia.

    The Air So Brisky Makes the Critters Frisky
    One really cool morning this week, we looked out the window to see Smoky, the (adorable) little donkey, briskly running up and down and around his pen, and kicking up his heels so high his front feet also left the ground.
    He has also been playing a lot with his big blue barrel. He was bucking and twisting as if he was in a rodeo. Every once in a while, he would stop and look toward the kitchen window as if to see if we were watching, which we were and enjoying the show very much.
