    Hi Robert & Kris,

    Just wanted to write and say Hi and see how you both are doing? Tara sends her love and is doing great. She has gotton bigger since you saw her last. Teddy is behaving most of the time but sometimes I have to yell at him alittle.

    We need to get together sometime, have dinner etc.

    When and where? We are easy, just not Monday night, and we want to be home at dusk to make sure everyone is locked in and safe for the night.

    Found a hidden guinea nest yesterday with 49 Eggs Figure about 8 to 9 days of eggs for our crew. Trying to decide what to do with them. Candled them and they all are fresh.

    The new feeder is working well, just as you told me it would. We still have to hang it. I just have it on a cement block for now until Joe gets the chain to hang and a bracket to mount on the wall. I think they just found it today (but only out for 1 day) I saw new pecks in the food, but I bring it in every night because of slugs. I hate those things. They are good for nothing. I cannot believe you found that many eggs. Seems as though all your girls contributed to that nest. I think the best time for dinner is maybe a Sunday afternoon because I have to be home also to let my 2 in. It doesn't take me as long as it would you and Kris but we are also flexible. We do not go out much during the week. I am not much for being out during the work week, just like Mom used to say "It is a school night" I do not know what your schedules are, but Joe and I work Mon thru Fri from 8 to 5, pretty simple. We can meet 1/2 way or something like that, or you both can come here. Anything is fine with us or we will come down there. You name it since you have alot more critters than we do.

    Bailing twine makes great rope to hang feeders, but use a snap on the feeder end to make it easy to take down and clean, or add more food. hanging it also makes it harder for them to roost on it. should also keep the slugs out.

    We are Easy. Whenever where ever. This Sunday is dinner at inlaws though.

    That's OK. It can be whenever you and Kris are free. Our Sundays are not real busy. Next Sunday we have plans also. so maybe the week after that, but then it will be getting darker earlier. Gee about those 49 eggs, I was going to ask you if you wanted the eggs that Tara lays (when she does), LOL since I don't want any babies. Don't know why I am typing in italics now but my fingers move to fast on a keyboard and mash stuff I do not need to. We will get together, I promise. We want to take you and Kris out for dinner, because of what you did for us.
