Michelle and Dan appear to have had a grand time celebrating the end of their youth yesterday. The weather cooperated with showers holding off until the presents had been opened.
We enjoyed meeting Michelle's family and of course, spending the afternoon with our dear friends. Michelle's brother Barry even attempted to solve our groundhog problem, but the crafty little rodent escaped, darn.
Yes, I said groundhog problem. A young groundhog has found a way into the chicken yard, probably under the fence somewhere. Yesterday I saw the wily rodent grazing on clover behind Henbogle Coop while the party was in full swing. He showed no interest in departing until Barry arrived with a hoe. I'm sure it will be just a matter of time until it attempts to dig under the fence to the vegetable garden. We need to train the chickens to chase it off.
Today, we are enjoying a relaxed, drizzly Sunday with Kyle and his girlfriend Megan. Thanks to all for coming and for bringing yummy side dishes and gifts! We are lucky to live in a great town and have wonderful friends and family to share the good times.
