In Response to Inquiries
The Homestead Critters are tolerating the heat and dry weather. Several have asked about the critters, since it has been so hot. Papa Bear Bill has been keeping them supplied with fresh water, and they all have shade and/or shelter.
• Betsy LongHorn, the Bartels girl (namely Geneva), and the three youngsters, surprise us, as they do not take advantage of their shade trees.
They seem to like to lie in the sunshine, even in the 100-plus degree weather.
