Celebration of the month of the birth
I don’t celebrate a birthDAY – I celebrate the entire month (even though it is officially my birthday today) – happy birthday to me
It’s a wonder I’ve had time to do anything on the old farmhouse with all the catching up I’ve had to do with old friends. So much for me moving to the country to write – I haven’t had time to scratch myself (lucky I haven’t had any itches).
Yesterday I went out to the old farm house to catch up on some blogging, but got waylaid doing some work around the place. But I did find a discarded snake skin where I usually sit and write.
On Saturday one of our dear friends was driving his tractor near an embankment when the clutch pin broke and the tractor went over the edge. He managed to jump off before it hit the bottom and is thankfully alive to tell the tale. We’ve been friends for so long I had actually based a character on him (one of the Rossi twins) in my novel Let Sleeping Gods Lie.
While we were in the shed checking out the tractor we saw some dove chicks in a box. They were about a week old and the mother was nowhere around so I took a quick photo. Just to clarify here – this is a HUGE industrial shed with loads of noise and grinding of metal, but for some reason the mother dove decided to lay her eggs here (don’t worry, the boys who work in the shed absolutely LOVE them!)
We then went past a part of the farm where the boys used to swim when they were kids – but they don’t anymore…
I then said hello to Mo the pig (he’s a razorback btw!)
My friend’s dog, Bonnie didn’t want me to leave at the end of the day
That was my yesterday – there’s loads on today with a birthday breakfast, a lunch and a dinner! Until next time – be well, stay safe and if you’re driving a tractor stay away from embankments!
