There is no way that three, is a crowd!

December 23, 2013

   What a whirl wind couple of weeks it has been. Like all families at this time of year, we have been busy! There was shopping to do and cookies to bake. The tree to decorate and the house too…. Thankfully, I didn’t have to do any of those things…thanks to my dear Connie.

   I did help a friend butcher a very big beef, get our maple sap bags ready to go, kept up with chores and birthing pig babies. I have shoveled mountains of manure and snow. We put a ceiling in the old shop and moved sheep to different pasture.

   Sadly we attended funeral services for a great friend. He was our local fire chief, township trustee and fellow farmer. I will miss John Wayman. I also had to deal with the grief of losing my best friend and canine pal “King”. He had been my constant companion for two and a half years. A condition required us to have to put him down… I am far from over it and just didn’t feel much like writing these past couple of weeks.

   Great rains overtook us and melted all of the snow. The farm is saturated once again with water. Mill Creek has been out of its banks for several days, but the water is finally going down. They say a freeze is once again coming, but a white Christmas may elude us this year.

   I want to take just a line to say Merry Christmas to all my readers, from all of us here at the farm!

I wanted to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Mostly, I wanted to offer sincerest condolences for King. I know how important he is to you. I am so sorry to hear it and hope that you feel better soon! He always knew he was loved, I am sure:) All our best! Nicole and Family

Nicole, thank you for your kind words and your thoughts for me. Someday, I might get another dog, but for now I’d rather be comforted by the memories of King and Lucy. Those two dogs were two of the best on the planet. I know that I loved them, but better still… I know they loved me too!

So sorry to hear of King’s passing. Dogs are family members too & he had a great life with you. The Rainbow Bridge poem tells of how all our 4 legged friends are waiting for us when we pass and we will be reunited with them once again. I understand how hard the loss is though. Hope each day is getting better for you.
