Happy new Year England, Ireland Scotland and Wales......oh ! and Holland. At 4 pm, (US time...midnight UK time) After checking that Baby Doll (the very pregnant and waddling ewe) wasn't in the process of delivering babies 1...2 , 3 or...4, ensuring George the very frustrated and lonesome ram hadn't escaped the confines of the bachelor pad and reassuring Angel and Anna the former "lambs" that they were now fully grown and capable of surviving in the adult ewe world...we checked our little "oyster phones" and it was ALMOST 4 pm in the UK. clearly, recording the moment was historical..but, the tripod refused to conform !! A log and a twig secured the camera and 2018 in the united Kingdom was recorded for posterity...um..about 4 minutes late..but the thought was there. Happy New Year Europe...Family friends and everyone...Love from the ranch..the raspberry wine is so good. Love you all...<3 xxxx
Lights, camera, ACTION....great neighbours ( English spelling) and great friends.....My fairy godmother waved her twinkly wand over me and "just like that" I was a princess. It was PARTY TIME. We spend much of our lives scooping poop, cleaning muddy horses, herding cattle in the rain and chasing sheep in the wind and snow. Last night, in my $2 lacy top (courtesy of Angel's Guild, thank you) we had a fun night. It was our annual "Barn appreciation party", no two steps or square dancing and not in the big cedar barn but surrounded by lovely people who have in one way or another helped us make the life we love so special. Thank you everyone, family, friends, neighbours and Facebook friends who have made Gentle Giant Meadows Ranch such a special place to be. Greg has his knee surgery on Wednesday..lambing begins (potentially) in two weeks.....bring it on 2018, we are ready for you. Keep warm and keep safe.
If you are lonely this Christmas....just get in touch, there is no reason to be alone, there are always arms reaching out....seriously. We are here. Merry Christmas, thank you Key Peninsula. Maureen and Greg xx
Its me, Maureen, (the Boss)
