They're all on holiday now...

Delivered the last 95 of the meat chickens for this year. All we have left now are the layers, which are much less time-consuming to care for. Yay!!

She's been here!

"It was the little old deserted farm that people point at from car windows, saying, 'Look at that picturesque old place!' then quickly drive by toward something not quite so picturesque, but warmer and nearer to civilization"

No swamps for the swamp rat

Was politely but officially turned down for a position as a volunteer on the Ivory-billed Woodpecker search this winter. Hardly surprising considering the enormous pile of applicants they doubtless had. Still I was hoping that my years of swamping might have given me a better-than-average shot. Maybe I sould have told them my Yahoo ID?

They did send along links for information if I want to search on my own; I may think about doing this for a week sometime this winter. Just to see the place, if nothing else.
