Rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated.


I know, I know. It's been busy. I haven't abandoned the place, but is sure is dusty.

We are still homesteading in Washington. We have goats, chickens, ducks, a little bit of a lot. Things are keeping me really busy these days.

We got rid of one problem vehicle, the Subaru and are working on selling our beloved IRV. The place has wheels for a reason. If they aren't rolling, they're wasting away. Someone should use him.

I had an idea for a book that I am working on in the spare minutes I find, which is keeping me from blogging as much as I usually might.

But fear not.  Work progresses apace.  I shall return.

First night in the goat shed. The boys didn't wan them to be lonely

They were only four days old.

They have become more comfortable in their new home
 We had to build some fencing for the goats. Chicken wire only slows them down for a few days.

Max had to see what his voice sounded like in the post hole

Micheal too.

Gotta hold your mouth just right.

Did I mention the ducks?

Someone showed up on our doorstep with a mama and ten babies

Brother goats can be cute

Did I mention the chickens?  Seven chickens
Yeah, things have been busy.

Life on the farm.

Michael has hijacked the post. I have been procrastinating for months telling..uh... you guys, that we(I) got a new pet (drumroll please) Socks

she is a cat...obviously

she was a christmas kitten and is a nutjob, dedicated solely to the destruction of my brother

we dont have enough pictures of her but I have trained her to come and sit on command and walk on a leash.

on an unfortunate darker note the death counts of the ducks are a 6 and chickens 1

R.I.P duck, duck, duck, duck, duck, duck and guenevere
