GlOOMY DAY-GARY COMES FOR A VISIT-SITES ON THE BACK ROADS-MAUDE’S CARDS

22 09 2013
  1. Yesterday was a  gloomy day here in Western Mass.  Raining most of the day and the  dampness has seeped into the house.  Sammy’s respiratory problems have reared their ugly heads these past few days.  I am  setting up a humidifier in his room.   The sun came through this morning but its much cooler with plenty to cool breezes.  The change is light and coolness coming on has led the hens to stop laying and they are moulting.  I am getting one or two eggs per day instead of the 5 or 6.  They need the time off.  It will be good to get the new hens this week.   

COMPANY COMING

My cousin Gary came last night from Maryland on Amtrak today.

He and I have train travel in out blood.  Our Grandfather worked for 41 years on the Pennsylvania railroad.

My visits to Maryland as a child were all about trains and most times my Mom and I would travel down there by train.  Train travel in the United States isn’t as convient as it used to be.  When I was young trains stopped almost at every town.  Now they only stop at cities.  Gary came into Brattleboro, Vermont which is only a half hour from my house. 

Some wonderful scenes from he drive on the back roads to Brattleboro .

Just up the road from these gals was a beautiful Tom who was strutting around in front of some gals.  It was a beautiful site.

MAUDE’S CARDS

Friday I had a few of Maude’s photo’s made up into cards.

 This morning Gary and I cut and folded them.  We are heading down to Sheep and Shawl this afternoon where they will be for sale.  I was so lucky to get this shot, it was on a dark day she was having an afternoon nap.  She is such a happy sheep you can see it in her face.  I am lucky to have her.

Many thanks for reading my blog today and I hope you have a wonderful day.   Carole
