Good Sabbath one and all…
It’s a beautiful day here at Thistle Cove Farm — the sheep and horses all graze peacefully on the hillsides; the kitten is playing with his toy, the dogs are taking naps and the older cats are snoozing or keeping watch.
A kitten update…one would think, with as many livestock as I’ve helped castrate, I would know a male from a female. And I do, except when I’m in a hurry it’s terribly easy to make mistakes, some of which are drastic and others just funny. This is a funny mistake – the kitten, Rascal, isn’t a girl. Rascal is a boy…all boy. We took him to the vets to have his first shots and an examination. The vet flipped Rascal on his back and proclaimed, “a nice boy you’ve got here.” My eyes widened and I took another look, this time not a quick peek but a slow look. Yep, Rascal is still a cutie and he’s a boy.
At any rate, some mistakes are funny, some are drastic but they all provide fodder for the mill stone. The men are here delivering more hemlock lumber and the barns are looking great! It’s nice to watch pros at work and know these old barns will still be here when I’m long gone.
I’m out of pocket for a while and it’s unknown if I’ll have computer or internet access. If I do, your Fiber Femme Foreign Correspondent (thanks Leslie!) will send a note from here and there to yon.
At any rate, be safe and live with God’s blessing.
