DOG DAYS BY JOB KATZ

On one of my Minnie visits to Brookside Animal Clinic the subject came up about good books.  This one was mentioned enthusiastically by the vet tech.  I got one for me and one for a birthday present for a friend.  It’s about a man who lived in NYC and moved to a farm in Vermont.  Its takes us through daily life of owning a farm and the animals and people who are in his  life.  Its a thoughtfully written book with humor.  As in this farm there are good times and bad, sometimes we feel we can’t lift another bale of hay then a robin drops into our path.  Farming is a tough life for older folks but somehow we carry on.  There is nothing nicer than sitting in the pasture with the sheep or going down to the river to cool off.

CHICKENS OUT

I spent a few hours this morning cleaning out part of the front outside coop.  I want them to clean that up before I open the rest of the area.  They are happily digging for bugs.,

PRIDE OF BALTIMORE

The Pride of Baltimore 11 was in Havre de Grace, Maryland  recently and I asked my Cousin Gary, who lives close by, to get me a picture or two.  He couldn’t get the pictures but sent me this card .  It contains a piece of material woven like the original Star  Spangled Banner.  I was surprised how loosely woven it was.  What a treat to get in todays mail.  Havre de Grace is one of the prettiest towns in Maryland.  Located right on the Chesapeake Bay its loaded with quaint shops, beautiful scenery and lots of history.  Right off of 95.  Stop by for a visit you won’t be sorry.
