Watch This Space...

I thought I would let you all know that I've decided to go Walk-about to the local medical center. ;-) Hopefully, this won't be too long of a trek and I'll be back posting in no time!

There's not much to report from the Farm right now...other than it's hot and very, very dry. The sheep have been spending a good deal of time in the barn where it stays cool most of the day. The door is open and they can go in to a communal loafing area. It seems to be the "Teenagers" - Loretta, Colin and Ailee, who like the barn most of all. There are fans going inside as well so they not only have air movement, but fewer summer flies bothering them. (I have noticed that the flies don't bother them much with their sheep-coats on.)

I thought I would show everyone this picture of that poor Mama duck who lost her brood to the coyotes. She's in what's left of our neighbor's "tank"...which is now almost completely dried up. If this were a normal year, monsoons would start up around the 4th of July and go until August. Days would start out hot, then by noon thunderstorms would develope and a nice cooling rain would come making the evenings chilly. Even with as hot as it's been we've still had to have a light blanket on the bed.

I'm not sure if Ralph will attempt blogging on MY blog, but I promise - as soon as I'm able I will tell you all about my visit to "Chez FMC" (Flagstaff Medical Center).

And Mr. Skittles has promised me that he'll keep an eye on things for me while I'm gone.

Thanks, Skit! :)

PS: I will have my DH let either (or both) Tina or Michelle know how things went/are going and they have graciously offerred to post news for interested people. I consider myself truly blessed having two friends like these! I love you both! :)
