Welcome

To the outside world we all grow old. But not to brothers and sisters. We know each other as we always were. We know each other's hearts. We share private family jokes. We remember family feuds and secrets, family griefs and joys. We live outside the touch of time. ~Clara Ortega

Chickens and beautiful gardens






So we haven't shown you some pictures of our chickens for a couple months. They have gotten big, annoying, and very picky. Not to mention they poop all over our stairs. Dixie is one of the most annoying, we get at least 20 visits from her a day at the window. I think she's thinking, "Please sir, I want some more." I personally have gotten sick of her so I throw her off if I ever see her on the steps. But with out fail she comes back again in 2 seconds, even though her food bowl is all the way full. Now if she's on the steps I look at her and she runs away scared. I love it. But one benefit they have given us in this past month is eggs. Yes, I said it eggs. We have finally gotten those wonderful, large, blue eggs. Well not quite. They are small, and a brownish color. We got ripped off. We won the Jackpot though, Dixie laid a twin egg. I bet you've never seen one of those before.
So have you seen my marvelous garden, it was grown by me. I grew them by seed and now the corn is as tall as my nose. An my tomatoes are huge. Go me! Yes I know I am such a bragger. So next time you want your garden huge call Mr. Green Thumb over here. And we didn't start planting till July. OH NO! MY HAIR IS GONE!

Parks you need to write all the blogs because you are such a good writer and entertaining. But I know you really love those chickidees, Dixie was just bad today. And Ace and Daisy are always good! And luckily we have you or no garden for us again.

You are a good writer parks, and your garden is deletable. you just wait till i come in the night and steal all your fuits/veggies. That egg grosses me out tho not going to lie.
