Sometimes Writers Have To Bond With Real Humans And Baby Animals


I’ll be back in a few days. Enjoy our new goat kids . . . Holden, Francis and Kaitlyn and the little drake named Ferdinand.

    • Yes we do. The babies come with the milking, as you know πŸ™‚ We don’t need a huge herd so this year we may have to find homes for the babies, but I’ve already grown attached to the runt of the litter–so we’ll see. Last year we had good luck with Lithuanian cheese and Mozzarella. Actually the simple chevre turned out well but our family is less fond of the stronger cheese. This year we’ll try to make feta–my husband’s new favorite and supposedly simple to make. Fun and challenging. πŸ™‚


    • I always wanted a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and I always wanted to name a son Huckleberry Finn (but my husband was opposed) πŸ™‚

      So that’s how my dog got the name. We make him talk with our version of a southern accent. Thanks for stopping by.



  1. Oh, Ferdinand is adorable!!! He’s a Khaki Campbell, right? Your daughter (I almost said “kid” but did not want to slip into another inadvertent pun) must love being around all those charming animals. I know mine does! πŸ™‚


    • Ferd is adorable πŸ™‚ The “kid” is actually my niece. My actual kids all vary on their interest levels when it comes to the whole animal thing–though they all like naming the babies. πŸ™‚

      How old is your child?


      • My older daughter is like Rory from Gilmore Girls but with more attitude πŸ™‚ Once after we’d had chickens housed in a big coop for about three years she asked where the chicken coop was (we only live on 5 acres of land and there’s only our house a woodshed and the coop area which she could see from her bedroom window). She seriously had no idea because she doesn’t like getting her boots dirty! LOL. She’s a cutie though.
