    mine was just dandy.

    heres a recap:

    went to check on the chickens where i was teased by the Mockingbird of Happiness who was hanging out in a nearby dead tree.

    Then CrackerJax got all offended about something and asploded off her nest

    so i took the opportunity to count. luckily she is only trying to hatch 6. score!

    then i went to check on the cows and found a new calf:

    checked on the rest of the herd and everyone was doing fine.

    watched a cow picking her nose for a while. cow bugars are nastay.

    my pet cow Agnes wanted some treats but i didnt have any for her.

    found some verbena.

    checked on the chickens somemore and was inspired to name this chick WayFastWhitey mostly b/c shes like superdooper fast but also because she's... well... white. (*hoping its a she)

    and then i found half a squirrel.

    and then what i believe to be the remains of an immature swamp ape in a sandpit.

    then checked to see if my favorite heifer Claire had calved yet and she hadnt.

    and now i'm eating a chili cheese dog. (oops too late to take a picture.)

    Oh, such nice pics, well, except for the dead squirrel, and whatever the heck that other thing was!

    I worked, and cleaned my house. I'm thankful to own my own home (in town though), and have a steady job that I love. All in all, a good day!

    Oh yeah, and logged onto BYC a few times to boot![​IMG]

    Well, the Saints announced that they'd be staying in New Orleans until 2025 ([​IMG]) and I got my teenytiny tax refund back ([​IMG]), so that I can start work on my mini chicken tractor tomorrow. Plus, it was the last day of classes before finals ([​IMG]). I'd say it was a good day!

    Grew up in florida as a kid my dad use to scare me and my friends. Use to tell us the swamp ape was going to get us if we stayed out after dark.

    How did that teeny little calf wind up in a sand pit?

    You can see it's little hooves sticking out!
