Wing, a skunk?!! Ha. I got chased by one once, not fun.
Barbie, tilapia in the basement? I am beyond jealous. That is so awesome.
So we woke up to the ground covered in snow, and my Bella missing... I haven't been out with the critters at all lately, and am looking forward to checking goats and looking for Bella today. It's not like her to run off, but I've had her electric collar off for a bit now giving her poor skin a break from those prongs. I'm sure she's not far.
Stake, that's the Lionel train set my husband and his brothers grew up with. The grandsons are entranced. They are moving back in here this weekend, looking forward to seeing them everyday again, and helping my daughter get back on track.
I'm sure Bella will come back. Hope you see her soon.

Seems like the predators are especially hungry and brazen this time of year - a warning to all of us to take extra care.
Thanks guys. Amazing news! Like a Phoenix from the fire, my largest brown Silkie made it! I was out with the girl a few minutes ago, and I heard another chicken, and sure enough it was my brown Silkie int my next door neighbors yard! I don't know how it got over the fence, but I'm glad it did! At least I have one.
