Last weekend we started to enlarge our rather small chicken house. We are just barely having enough eggs for our customers and hardly any for ourselves. We would like to have enough to put some chicken in the freezer. E thought that we could add another half dozen hens and maybe raise a few extras for meat. Neither of us want to do what it would take to do that, so maybe it won't happen either. But it is a thought. We know someone that says they would take care of that, for some of the meat. But...don't know if we will go that route or not.

Solomon is going to be 22 years old in May. It seems so unbelievable to me! I well remember that wet thing laying in the straw with Easter (his mother) and wondering what sort of horse he would turn out to be. Not too bad, as it turns out. He is a good boy.

I always thought his mom was Windy?? That shows how much I remember.

Ya, are you sure? I thought Windy was his mom too, and I was there that night, in the barn, watching. Oh well, that was 22 years ago, maybe my memory got messed up.

For pitty sakes you all, I remember that night just like yesterday, and Windy WAS not him mother! Don't you remember taking Easter over to Palmira to the big red stallion, and the owner that was manly herself? Owen Grunden's daughter, remember now?
Some of his little feller spitfire wore off didn't it Sharon? :)
