Wicked Walk 8/11/2016

Recently my darling friend, Amanda, took her husband on a surprise trip to Hot Springs to celebrate their anniversary.  I set up camp at her casa to look after chickens, parrots, dogs and various other creatures.  My darling friend has a lot of mirrors.  These lovely bits of reflective glass only reinforced the knowledge (shoved…

Wicked Walk 6/2016

I posted on Saturday about last things.  I knew, almost without a doubt, this would be the last walk I took as a resident of Maydelle.  In the back of my mind, I tried to think I could squeeze in another one, but it wasn’t to be. So.  Here it is. My last walk as…

Sneaky Snake

Last week, I was casually checking eggs and freshening up the water when I saw him.  Black, with a pretty pattern, small, glossy eyes and a red tongue.  He saw me too.  And he left, after participating in a stare-off with me.  I guess I won, since he left first.  I told Addie about him,…

To Love

They say to have loved and lost is better than to never have loved at all.  Today I am not so sure.  Yesterday morning I awoke to let out my chickens into their courtyard, aka run, for the day.  I immediately noticed Stripe-Stripe was not among them.  I knew in my heart she was gone…

Wicked Walk 7/1/2015

Coming back from a trip is always a nice thing.  East or west, home is best!  Stripe-Stripe was glad to see me along with all my other little creatures. Here is what I saw. At home. This is Stripe-Stripe’s “Where have you been Mama!?!” face. This is her ‘looking at a flower face’.  It was a…
