Second in command. This is Harley’s chair when Dad’s not around.

Friday Ark #93 is up at Modulator. Check it out!

Washed out road

This is what the outcome was of the culvert getting ripped out of the ground. The road stayed this way for at least a month because we live on a township road with minimal traffic. It’s a good thing we never needed an ambulence during that time!

2004 Flooding

Flooding in 2004 ripped the culvert pipe right out of the road. I was just about to leave for work when it happened. We stood there and watched the pipe come up out of the ground (sort of like the titanic) and then wash down the creek and get stuck.

Naturally, I emailed this picture to my boss to explain why I wouldn’t be in that day. 🙂 The roads all around us were washed out.

There are times I wish we had a horse and buggy.

Dora (the kitten) is most likely a half sister to Harley. Same father, different mother. We try to trap the strays around the farm and take them to be spayed, but sometimes it’s next to impossible to get them. This picture was taken July 2005. Dora went to live with my sister-in-law’s boss, who is a vet.

Kizzy came into the house in January because her mother had no milk. She’s now 5 months old and full of personality.

My little Bella

Bella almost didn’t make it. Her two other triplet siblings didn’t. It was a difficult birth for the mother. Bella was very cold and so I brought her in the house to warm her and feed her. She is now 3 months old and a hoot to watch as she skips and jumps and butts heads with the other goats in the pasture.

No, Dixie is not trying to pee on Bella, she is stepping over her while she circles around her trying to figure out what-the-heck kind of dog Bella is. 🙂

Harley takes it upon himself to personally inspect each critter we bring in to the house to care for. Bella the goat is one day old in this picture and was the only one of triplets that survived. It was march and she was too small to endure the cold so we brought her inside to keep her warm. We bottle fed and put her out with her mother when the weather allowed. As of 6/16/06 she is three months old and has been outside with the other goats for about a month.

I was reading Farmgirl Fare, which was featured as a Blog of Note on Blogger and she mentioned Weekend Cat Blogging at Eat Stuff. Cute stuff. Check them out!
