Morning Rounds in the Truck

All the animals like to see the truck arrive, but for all different reasons. The sheep make full use of it to scratch those hard-to-reach itches while I dispense sheep chow into feeders -


The sheep would do that all day if I let them. They would be awesome at one of those Touch the Truck competitions.

Kitty capitalises on her height and prefers to investigate what's in the flat bed. This morning she thought she hit the jackpot, finding straw and bags of cut maize -


Then she sniffed the wormer paste -


Poor Kitty. Sometimes the truck giveth, sometimes the truck taketh away.

Still laughing!!! Teach that cheeky girl to prospect... Chuckle, chuckle. Thanks for providing a huge smile to start my day. BTW, it's 20 Oct and we're forecast for rain here in the sub-arctic.

It's december and no more posts. I do hope everything is all right there.

I have been following your blog for quite a while; went back and read all the back posts as well as checking for new ones every couple of weeks. Your post on the Sheela na Gig sent me on a wonderful virtual trip through English country churches.

I grew up reading the New Yorker in Butte, Montana, so that post really resonated.

With all best wishes,
Sally
