Here is where I live today...

Here is where I came from (today). 

Hmm...posted with lots of love to my Wet Side relatives and comrades.

Marge is the champion

There are at least 13 live piglets. No dead ones discovered as of yet, and there is quite a crowd around the teats, so there could be 14:

Go Marge!

Love them midgets (turkeys)

Momma turkey just hatched 13 more babies (in addition to the two chickens hatched last week). Boy those little white ladies make some babies. I bet if the magpies would quit stealing eggs, our two hens would have reared 40 or more chicks this year.

Fair Fun

Here's a brief shot of the eldest showing her dairy cow. Was a grand champion for confirmation.

Last year I had the pleasure of meeting Marlyn Jondle when she came to buy LBH from me. I did not get a chance to build a deep relationship, but I looked forward to seeing where the farm went.

I just found out that Marilyn and her Husband (David (Scott), whom I never had the pleasure of meeting) were recently murdered. I am heartbroken.


My prayers go out to everyone affected by this tragedy.
