New Guineas

Okay, so now I've got the pictures up, but editor won't let me put them where they belong. Thanks for your patience while I learn how to do this. The dog pics, of course, belong with the blurb about Eulalia.

But not the country...Mrs. D's friend ordered guinea chicks, but then needed a brooder, sooo - here they are. They arrived right before our first freeze of the year, so are having an especially hard time of it. The good news, half are still alive;)

Tragedy has struck again, Eulalia Burrito died Friday morning. We still don't know exactly what happened, one minute she was fine, next she was sick. Possible she picked up parvo virus or ate something poisonous. We'll never know.

In hopes that Maryruth will begin to contribute to this blog (hint, hint), she has been invited, here is what her day was like Friday: Get up for early morning walk; Shirley Doll (her pug) brings her scarf, shoes, and chew toy (Shirley's chew toy, not Maryruth's); head to door, Shirley runs headfirst into door three times before Maryruth gets there to open it (only pug owners can appreciate this). A new rescue pug will be joining Shirley Doll pug this week, We hope Maryruth will post pictures and updates. Okay Maryruth, the rest is up to you.

We had our first hard freeze of the season Saturday night, Mrs. D's garden is now officially done. Winter garden project is not yet started. Fall peas are still trying. But oohhh that nice, warm fire in the woodstove;) Having trouble posting pictures right now, my computer doesn't want to read the memory card. Hope to have some for next time.
