  • Faith Can Move a Mountain
    And Kelly Devall can move a barn, which he and his helper, Dale, did last week.
    The story is, when we lived in the south woods, we bought a small, barn-type shed for storage. When we moved to the north end of the lane, we didn’t move it along with us. (It wouldn’t fit in the pickup truck))  
    We had tried to contact the man who had moved it initially, but learned he had quit the business.
    Therefore, we had to trek a quarter of a mile and back to look for something we   had stored.

  • News from the Chicken Roost
    One early morning last week, when Bill went out to feed the chickens, he found Rhonda Hen’s lifeless body.  
    There were no signs of foul play, such as a scuffle, feathers strewn about, etc.; it just appeared like she went naturally to the great chicken roost in the sky.
    We felt sorry for Blackie, as this was the second “best friend” she had lost. The first, our readers may remember, was when Anita Chicken was grabbed by a red fox and carried away, right in front of Blackie’s eyes!

  • Rabbit Population Growing
    We believe Buddy Bunny’s cousins, aunts and uncles may be joining him on the Homestead, as we are seeing more of the cute, fuzzy, little critters hopping around in our yard in the early mornings, much to Katie, the doggy’s disapproval.
    She barks loudly and threateningly every time she sees one of them, and they seem to like to play near her pen.
    We think that she looks at them as big cats with long ears and fuzzy little tails.
