NOW WHAT?

Lord have mercy...there's a ruckus going on in the coop this evening...I grabbed Winslow Homer's leash and we headed out to investigate...a fox... squirrel... chipmunk...raccoon?With the recent loss of Iris and Charlotte I'm still on the edgy side...I find myself becoming a mother hen...a worry wart.. but...with my presence things in the coop began to settle down... I happened to glance over at Don Juan...I do believe I saw a twinkle in his eye... Miss Josephine was all aglow...and then there is was... the soft little noise...we... the girls and I all turned our heads in unison... under the warmth of Josephine's breast...a teeny... tiny... baby chick briefly appeared...and so the circle of life continues here at Dog Trot Farm...more tomorrow...this old hen needs to hit the nest...goodnight...

Happy Birthday to Winslow - he's a little trooper. My chihuahua is also 11, and she's been hopping on 3 legs. Arthritis the vet says...

Good to hear your parents are on the mend - you've been a busy girl!

There is usually a bit of joy in every sadness. This is definitely that joy.

Unless it's a Rooster baby ; )
