So yesterday Mom declared that since it was Labor Day Weekend we should take a Vacation. With a farm I have to tell you getting a vacation isn’t as easy as you think. You have to hire someone to take care of your chores and then you have to take a few days to teach them how to do them and well, most of the time it just isn’t possible. Most of the time Mom and I go somewhere while Dad stays home and takes care of things. Or Dad and I will go and Mom stays home.
So when Mom said that we were going on Vacation I was confused. She told me to pack the truck with Fishing supplies, the gun and a cooler of bottled water. Then she added that I better grab the wieners and just incase we didn’t catch our dinner. At that point I knew we were going fishing so I got the truck loaded. I even threw in a few chairs and some fire wood. Then we headed … to the Pond!
Mom grabbed her Camera and we set out to have a ton of fun right here on the farm, while on vacation! Mom and I came home just long enough to do our chores then it was back to the pond. I will tell you that we had fun. Mom tried to get photos of the night sky but just couldn’t get them. We could see the Milky Way and the Moon, as well as Billions of stars … It was very awesome. The only issue we had was when there were so many coyotes that even Jethro hunkered down in the grass and kept very quiet because he knew he was out numbered. Hank hid under the truck but I had the gun and we were okay. Just so you know there were 3 separate Packs out there. We came home about 1am and then slept in late. Today we had lunch with Dad’s Dad and then I visited the cemetery with him.
Even though it wasn’t a vacation like most of you know, it was a vacation for me. And Mom and I had fun. So here are a few pictures from our “trip” hope you enjoy them.
There are two things that I should mention here on the blog that have been ongoing. First, Phinny our Angora Male finally got his worm issue worked out. However, It was at the expense of his fleece. If you remember Jazzie had this same issue a few years back and she is now doing fine but she lost her fleece That year. With the change in our wormer we think everything will be okay. Second, Gracie is not handling the extreme heat very well so we have her on some vitamins and Minerals and she seems to be improving.
