And The Winner Is

Edited to add for the anonymous person that said rabbits DO NOT move their babies. Guess I have a rare one as I have seen her move them. She made two nests when she had 11 babies and put the smallest ones in one and the larger ones in the other. She nursed the smaller ones first. On hot days she would roll them out of the nest and place them where they would be cooler.

Donna ! Congratulations and send me your mailing addy (happe2b50atyahoodotcom) and I will get your package in the mail.
William and his bike. This is a 1980 but only has 22,000 miles on it and he purchased it very cheap. He has been wanting one for a long time. Don't know when he will find the time to ride it but he is already telling me about buffing and polishing. If you look past the bike and the grands cabin you will see my backporch. The screen isn't on yet and the floor and steps aren't painted but soon very soon I will be enjoying relaxing there.
Fred is strutting his stuff for Ethel. She is still too young for him but he wants her to know she is the one for him.

Yesterday my neighbor Vicki's daughter called to see if I wanted a electric organ. She cleans homes for people and this elderly lady wanted it out of her house. So I got a free organ. Several of the bottom keys stick but other than that it works great! I have had fun playing the only 3 songs I know. Going to get a beginners book and see if I can teach myself.

Mary tagged me for 8 things about myself.

1. I hate motorcycles. I was in a very serious wreck that involved a drunk on a motorcycle hitting me.

2. I get busy and forget to eat till evening time. Then I eat and go to bed which isn't very healthy.

3. I don't want to sell my baby goats and am trying to talk William into letting me keep one.

4. I don't trust anyone completely to take care of my animals if I am not here. I always find things wrong or undone when I return and then feel guilty for leaving in the first place.

5. I hate driving.

6. I am finding I speak my mind more instead of trying to be nice. Especially when it comes to my animals and work around the homestead.

7. I love riding in William's semi. Its the best sleep I ever get, especially while he is driving.

8. I believe in the power of prayer. Especially after a very special one was answered for a very special blogging friend this week. (Sorry mums the word for now)

I was going to comment about how the motorcycle had a seat for you and how nice that was and then I saw your number one thing about you and thought well, maybe not.

Congratulations to your winner, the lucky girl:-) What a great picture of William on his motorcycle...I'm like you, these things terrify me! From what I could see of your new porch, it will be a terrific place for you to relax without the buzzing of insects around your head!! Wow, what a wonderful organ to get for free...I play by ear but wish I had taken lessons when I was younger!! I enjoyed reading your meme answers:-) xox

I see a second seat on William's cycle. Does that mean you will become a "biker chick" to add to your many personae. Don't forget your helmets. It would be a wonderful ride along the Blue Ridge Parkway.

It is a very revealing list of things about yourself. Not all surprises.

Nice you just hop right on and head out here for the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally! Whoohoo! Talk about saddle sores.

Rabbits do move their bunnies...on the farm it happened for sure. I know they moved them away from little kids trying to pry into their nests! ha!

Hugs to you!

Your back porch will be a wonderful place to relax! And a great place to watch the grands in their cabin. Love the names you chose: Fred and Ethel. :)

Great list. Prayer is powerful - let's agree to keep on praying for her.
