That Molly the big sow is in the neighbors barn eating his cow feed ( which by the way is disgusting stuff having 10 percent of meat byproduct in it).
Anyway, I am in California – I call John who luckily I was in the house not having started chores yet. He has gone over and a gate was open.
Manu was still in the barn waiting to be fed.
So, the man across the road has locked her in one of his pens and gone to work so I told John to let her settle for a minute then hook up the trailer and go and get her. Hopefully she will follow him on.
If it was me I would walk her home but that might not work for John.
So stand by and I will let you know when all is well!
Something always happens when I am away – let’s hope this is it, as it is an easy fix!
Nothing like a simple problem.
Anyway above are a few shots from my exact location. Today I take the children to buy presents for their mum. We have made a list of all the things she likes and we have discussed budgets and today out we go for the shopping. Kids love to GIVE gifts just as much as they love to GET them. Dad will be our chauffeur.
I will let you know when John sends me the ‘episode over’ all clear sign.
Oh and here is a lovely story. Long time readers and members of The Fellowship ( they wish to remain anonymous – We will call them Mr and Mrs P.) met me at the airport just before I took off for California and gave me this!
Mr P was upgrading and this MacBook Pro is still in grand working order so they have gifted it forward to me! I met them on the street outside departures. With the men in yellow jackets waving everyone through and shouting to move along we did a speedy unorthodox spy drop. Mr P was at the wheel as they roared up to the curb. Mrs P leapt out of the car into the pre Christmas bedlam, neatly slid the laptop into my waiting attaché case as she reached to hug me – handed me the chords as she said a quick few words. Clandestine waves and kisses as she jumped back into the waiting car and they sped off. I melted back into the crowd as they disappeared and after a few dodgy turns to throw off any tails, before you knew it they were home having a cup of tea and toast satisfied with a successful mission. And I was on a plane to California. Wonderful!
Many, many thanks to Mrs and Mr P! From all of us.
I have powered the laptop up, got her on line and she works like a dream, this is a lovely machine. It feels so solid and dependable.
What a wonderful Christmas present!
And we are in good shape again.
I will let you know when Molly is back home. Have a lovely day.
