The weeks go on. It’s hard to believe that school starts Aug. 28 and 29, depending on the grade and the school. I am glad we have no young ones in school and that we are not taking classes this year. I am planning on taking a canning class at the extension, but that is all. What I really need is to relearn gardening and other skills I once had, including how to play piano and guitar and ride a bike. I feel they will all come back one of these days.
An update on the chicken and the duck. They now come to the front door if we haven’t given them meaties in a timely matter. I think that it is actually the chicken who is the meaties fan. The duck just picks at them. The neighborhood squirrel is a different matter. She or he goes whole hog and tries to dismantle the birdfeeder that is most available.
