Well, sorry to say someone has stolen our road side egg sign. There it was, an arrow pointing the way to farm fresh eggs, an eye catching luminous yellow arrow which had caused Greg and I some discussion on its creation. During one of our “business meetings” (10 minutes while Greg gets his back scratched ) the concept was born and Greg, being “little boss,” ( I’m big boss) vet, maintenance man, tractor man, mechanic etc etc….was assigned the project. My input ( apart from size, design, location..) was colour ( Brit spell) and Greg challenged the suggestion for luminous yellow, "it will never work". At the risk of his back scratch coming to an abrupt end, his rebellion was squashed and the luminous yellow egg arrow was duly painted and hung for several months pointing my egg customers to the barn. Now it has gone, ripped off its chains and the support broken, I know it is only an egg sign, but did someone really have to re home it ? ( hope it had wood worm, termites carpenter ants and bark beetles !!!!)
We are a little concerned, Gertie the goose has become particularly clingy to Quest our Shire gelding, her call in the morning has been louder and longer of late. She is almost moulding her Canadian goose body around his legs and, as the fly population has apparently reached epidemic proportions, our big guy is swishing his mane and tail and kicking his tummy to evict the pesky squatters. We have a terrible feeling that Gertie the goose may well be joining the International Space Station in orbit before long. Our other concern is more for Quest…little black capped birds are hitching rides on his back, we have seen Gertie, head cocked, considering the chances of getting a little horse power under her webbed feet …..hopefully she is a smarter dumb goose than we give her credit for.
Once again the cuckoo clock tells me that my time for downloading my erratic train of thought has expired, one day when I am old (er) I will read the “Almost Daily Diary” (maybe !!) and it will remind me of all the fun we had. Take care, keep safe. M
