In the short amount of time we have been blogging, we have acquired a few questions in the comment section. We thought we'd try to answer those questions this morning.
Jake and Fergi - Two Special Wires and
Maggie and Mitch the Airedales
asked the same question regarding our stenciled porch.
"Do we get to see the finished porch?"
She might leave a smidgen (if she can make it into a small rug) of the stenciled porch in front of the parlor door (we Scotties don't go in and out that way so it still looks pretty good)
Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie asked,
"What do you grow on your farm, or is it a dairy farm?"
We grow organic Black Angus Beef Cattle on our farm and they are really tasty. We also have a few acres in pine trees that will probably be ready to harvest in about 50 years - we won't see them mature, but maybe our great (who knows how many greats that will be) grandchildren will. Mom and Dad usually have a vegetable garden and Dad grows a few flowers so that Mom can have some cut flowers. We also have started a lot of fruit trees and so far they have not produced too much - this year we think they will have more than the past years. There are two old Johnson Winter (York Imperial) Apple trees that have been on the place for over a hundred years - it's amazing how much 2 trees (that only have shells of a trunk) can produce.
Our great grandmother's Jelly Apple tree still produces very well and Mom always makes apple jelly and apple butter every summer.
of Scottish Terrier puppies every year.
"Do you get to run loose sometimes?"
"Can your Dad make THAT evil place go away?"
If you've never watched a cow drink water, you'd be surprised to know it inhales it through it's mouth and we think a fish could get in that stream without the cow knowing it. This is an experiment so we'll see. Dad saw one of the fisheys swimming on it's side in the bottom of the trough yesterday - not a good sign.
Yes it was and Mom and Java loved it Like you, Java saw it as his personal vehicle. When they moved back to the farm, Mom and Dad needed a 4 wheel drive vehicle. Mom wanted another Xterra, but Dad wanted a pickup - they compromised and got a king cab Nissan Titan. They both think it's the greatest vehicle they've ever had - well maybe not better than her Miata, but Mom still really likes it.

Wonderful black & white day!
I'm glad Lily didn't show her teeth.
It would have scared Hootie. hahahahaha.
Very funny Baby.
Lily wouldn't scare me.
In fact, Scooby is still actively looking for a galpup for me.
Maybe Lily likes younger men??
Have a fabulous Friday,
Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Java
