Happy 15th Birthday Ben!

I just wanted to wish my middle son, Benjamin Dale, a very happy 15th birthday today. The first picture was taken at is confirmation last April and the second picture was taken this past Christmas. He was very insistent that I not use "old" pictures. lol Teenagers! Love you much honey pot! ;)

Angora Bunnies

I was searching through some old pictures and found one of a litter of French Angora bunnies. I used to raise them about 5-6 years ago but found they were too labor intense, cute little buggers though!

I have upgraded from the cast to this fashionable (not!) walking boot. I can now put a bit of weight on my foot, enough to make it easier getting around the house. I still can't do much as my foot tends to double in size if it is not elevated most of the time. And I can't get out of the house without help other than to the front or back porches. I have not been to the barn in 3 1/2 weeks but Dan did get me in the car and drive me out to see my Plymouth Barred Rock chicks in the brooder house, my how fast they grow! Hopefully in another three weeks I will be back on both feet and able to enjoy the summer and the great outdoors again.
