A couple of friends and I went to the farm store and got baby chicks. They are so cute and one day will supply us with lovely eggs. Now they are under a heat lamp in the garage. I got a variety of 6 and the Rhode Island red on will be called Luci, after Lucille Ball, the yellow one, I think will be Greta Garbo, the black ones, well, I'm stumped. They are (1)Barred Rock, (2)Silver laced Wyandott, both are black and white speckled. The other one is just plain black. Anyone out there care to help me name them?
We had chickens that came with the house when we bought it 6 years ago and I just loved collecting the eggs every morning. It was like Easter as a kid, all over again! When we got Maggie, we had three left and thought the dog would probably eat them, so gave them to a neighbor. Well, Maggie is a gentle soul and minds so well that all we have to say is NO to her and she will leave them alone, so we are in the egg business again so to speak. I bake a lot and the eggs are so much nicer than store bought ones.

Easing into the 21st century

Our son visited and ushered me into the 21st century with my phone and computers. He hooked up my wireless network that I didn't realize I had. I knew we got the router, but thought it wasn't hooked up right because of course, it wasn't working for me. He also got my phone and car talking to each other and the blue tooth working, as well as getting my phone camera and my Mac on speaking terms. I wish he lived closer as I need him around about one day a week at least. . So even though things are working, I didn't get them posted correctly. I finally got the beach pictures uploaded in the last post, even though I had intended them to be in this one. Is there any hope for me? Don't answer that! I will whow the lovely sea food dinner we had though.

This son is in the Air Force and is stationed in Florida, soon to be going to So. Korea for a year. His family will have to stay in FL. He has been in for 22 years so far? He had to be at the airport this morning at 5:00 A.M. for his trip home. We will sure miss him.

We ate meals out a lot this week as we wanted to show Jeff a few of our favorite restaurants. Rib City was the favorite! I have never liked ribs because of eating with my fingers, but I make an exception for this one! YUM!


And they called it Puppy Love,
