Here's a very satisfied Kody, laying in the sun yesterday. You see that the grass has exploded this last week.
He loves to lay outside on his barrel and look around at everything, while Kaycee prefers laying inside.
The boys go for their operation next Wednesday, the 29th. Keith will be out of town, so I'll be transporting them to Dr. Jeannie's office, where she will... um.... make them wethers.
I'll have to listen to their pitiful crying all the way there, as they can't eat breakfast that day, or anything but water after 10 PM.
They are beginning to get their little horns, and as I find disbudding distasteful, and they are just pets, we're letting their horns grow.
Yesterday, I posted a picture that showed Mr. T by the nest box in the closet of the big henhouse. I pointed out that I had gotten the white egg out of that box and moved it. I put it with two brown eggs in the nursing cage, where several hens still like to lay.
So look what I found a few hours later as I was checking things before going to Nathan's promotion ceremony?
There goes my egg.
Not one, but two snakes...
Mr. T from the bottom.
Those are mouse holes in the drywall, and the snakes travel around in them. At some point, we are pulling all that drywall down.
Don't worry, this isn't becoming a snake blog.
Here's Nate in the gym (left) before his promotion ceremony. Those are two of his friends with him... and we got them all to hold still long enough to snap a couple of pictures. We enjoyed a Chinese food dinner before going over to the school... and the ceremony lasted about an hour. Most of the kids were dressed to the nines, as there was a dance afterwards at the city hall... but Nate chose not to go.
It was fun to see all the girls in their "prom" type dresses. I don't remember wearing anything like that at 14!
I had pictures of the kids... but I have not set the date right on the new camera yet (my good one is going back for repair)... and I can't figure out where they are filed! Sad!
I am staying home today, thank heaven, as the last four days have seen enough action around here for a month!
