The Forest and the Trees

We got a bunch of free trees today. About 50. We've got trees everywhere but need some weather to plant them.
They had many kinds of trees, from evergreens to cascara. I was so happy to get cascara and they were so happy to get rid of them. We also got alder and they were surprised anyone would want that. Also got some fir, broadleaf maple, cedar and I snuck in some bushes I forget there name.

What came first the chicken or the egg?

The egg came first, then the baby chicken came!

We got 12 new baby chickens. They are brown leghorns, they will lay a white egg. We just moved them in the house because of cold weather on the way and we can keep a close eye on them.

I want another pig! Everytime I see a pork chop I think of Pinky.....

I made Sheba this bed today. She would'nt sleep in the kennel last night. She slept on a chair and about froze to death so I decided to make her her own bed. I may cut off the two posts at the rear, and it needs a pillow. I got that cool photo of the dogs playing poker and another photo of the mona lisa holding a jack rat terrier. I may put some skirting around the bottem. But for now I wait and see if she likes it.

It's been a zoo around here

Yep, Sheba is in the doghouse today. She was up all night waking dad up to let her out. When she would'nt come in he went back to bed. In my dreams I heard this noise that sounded like a small dog jumping on a screen door. When I awoke there was Sheba at the door, wet and cold and not very friendly. She didn't even say "hi" on her way to dads bed.
Dad didn't get much sleep last night and don't want Sheba back. In
the photo it looks like they kissed and made up but I know better. I made a bed for her in my bedroom but she likes a people bed and a electric blanket.

We gave our prize rooster "Mr. Wilson" to the neighbor but he came back today looking for love. He's in the henhouse tonight and I don't hear any cackling (if you know what I mean). It's been a zoo around here today.
