Life in another small town like all small towns...really

I know what you're thinking. What a mess. Goat food? Oh yes!
This is the first pasture we fenced for the girls last August and they haven't been in here since this May? I spent yesterday pulling the milkweed since it is supposedly poisonous and found a handful more today.
The rest of the weeding is up to them - delicious food. This is Vinegar cleaning the Pallet Palace to get it ready for the afternoon sun. Speckles isn't allowed in the Palace at the same time as Vinnie, so she is happy to spruce up the door step. That's why we have to have separate shelters. Someone is always at the bottom of the pecking, or butting order, and is left out in the elements - sun or rain.
Everyone is doing their part - happily. They are going to be in eating heaven for days. Next week you will be able to see all the spools and sheds distinctly, and to the ground.
The blog is really notes to my friends, old and new, to let you know what's going on in our lives. Its also a diary of sorts for myself. It started at the farm in Ligonier, PA, hence the name, but now life and work has moved us back to Connecticut,
I've always taken lots of photos and sent postcards from everywhere we travel, just to keep in touch. Email took over and then the digital camera.
Instead of me plugging up your email, you can check in when you have the time.
And yes, another town with the same problems as any other!!!
Please enjoy and let me hear from you...really~

I know a lot of people know English much better than we know any other language, but for those that want some help, me included, I'm trying this translator. Please leave a message to let us know where you are viewing from. Ciao!
