    Great day..... candied apples, pumpkin stew, fixing fences, and working with chickens. Gosh, I love living in the country and having grandkids!!

    Tell her to keep hugging that orpie and she will be her best friend for life. I have a hen that tugs on your pants to be picked up and cuddled. Nothing better than cuddling those soft fluffy feathers. Beautiful pics!

    That's what I call the good life that so many people don't get to experience or even realize they are missing it. Great pics and sounds like a great day, too.[​IMG]

    Thanks for the replies... Days like that make me want to retire .... alas, 5-7 years to go. I wish I could stay home and work here all day. [​IMG]

    Sigh, guess I have to pay the mortgage somehow! [​IMG]

    What a wonderful day and nice pictures too. Your grandaughter is beautiful. I wish I could retire tomorrow and stay home and also. The sad part is I do not think I will ever be able to!! But I can keep dreaming!

    Cute pictures! What a beautiful girl. The orpie looks so big for 5 1/2 weeks. They're not older?

    You are so right... I just counted. They were 6 1/2 weeks old. Will be 7 weeks on Wednesday. They were hatched on Aug. 22nd.

    They are all so big and beautiful though. She is one of the smaller!
