Well, if there is a phenomena called de- ja- vous, I had it today ! This morning as the alarm clock went off like Big Ben on a good day, I went to turn over and respond to our early morning wake up call…(actually, truth be told,.. adopt optimum position for Greg’s pre dawn back scratch !!) and I got the first stabbing pains of yet another pinched nerve issue in my lower back !! DOH !! I’ll be a really good girl and I’m going to ask for a new back for Christmas! I don’t know what or how I’ve messed up this time but I know I’ve done whatever I’ve done VERY well.
Since I haven’t graced the barn with my presence today, no one raised Old Glory and my decidedly worn Union Jack and any comments reflecting today’s activities are all going to be second hand…but I will do my best to try to record memorable moments as honestly as artistic interpretation and fading memory allows
We have a very very major announcement!!!!!. Lesley and Derek honoured our farm by selecting Gentle Giant Meadows ranch to become engaged. Right out there in the Amigos pasture, watched by Daisy, Lamb Chop and Macho Derek took the traditional route to asking for lesleys hand in marriage. I’m not sure that I would have gone down on one knee in the three Amigo zone but you know what they say..”love is blind” and I have never seen a couple (except for us, smile) so compatible and happy together. We wish you a long and happy life together and hope that all your hopes and dreams come true….but sorry, NO, you can’t have hol-ley the calf!!!!
We don’t have Lesley with us this evening, she earned a few days of R and R and is currently enjoying the company of some friends in Tacoma where she was going to announce their engagement to some friends. Fortunately we still have Derek here to enthusiastically appreciate Greg’s homemade pizza and my home grown rhubarb crumble.
Nara and Azam apparently enjoyed the chicken pizza, it’s a wild guess but when Nara said that it was GREAT compared to New York pizza, I reckon it was a compliment!!
Due to popular request from the Woofers (I will be requesting a psychiatric evaluation of them all!) the team went to work cross fencing in Lady and Quests pasture. Truth be told, those big horses could render all that new fencing into spaghetti squash pulp with one major Lady stomp….but they amuse us by staying on the right side of the wire. Nara and Azam really helped with the bovine activities and Nara will I guess be measuring her biceps and abs after trying her hand using the post pounder. Azam got up close and personal milking Molly Moo, well done Azam.
Well, Greg has posted some photographs and time is rolling on to 7.30am, time to go. I am going to go down to work today, hopefully yesterdays enforced “rest” will have been beneficial.
Take care, keep us in your prayers, keep safe, M
