This squirrel got away, thank goodness. Whiskers spent over an hour watching and waiting till I finally went out and made him come inside so the squirrel could go about his business. If you ever get bored... Come to the homestead as its never boring here! Today I came home from taking the garbage off and found Miss Diva standing in the front yard. She had gotten out of her lot when she saw me drive off I guess. She had to pass the tomatoes, strawberries, okra, cucumbers and green beans to get to the front yard. She was standing right by the lettuce and onion beds and never eat a single plant! She was waiting for me because when I drove up she came right to the van and walked with me back to her lot. I fixed where she got out and gave her some alfalfa but she still cried when I came inside. I am getting her a goat baby to keep her company. Anyway life here at the homestead is anything but boring and now that the storm is finally here I had better shut the computer down. Enjoy the evening and count your blessings.

Life can be so simple and significant as long as you let it. You sure seem to be able to do that Peggy.
