    We missed you but know you had a great time. It’s always good to get home. I really enjoyed you sharing your British tour. We are planning a British Isles cruise in April and you gave some really great pointers and things to look forward to. Thanks for sharing them again.

    Welcome home, Suzanne. Isn’t it just lovely to return to a place you love after having a wonderful time being away? And to have so many creatures equally happy to celebrate your return is delightful. I suppose Mean Rooster is just showing you his appreciation in the only way he knows — He figures you missed his meanness! :chicken:

    Welcome home. I also missed the giant puppy, the goats, the donkey, the kittens, and everyone else. I did not miss mean rooster – I still think he would make a nice dinner.

    It was interesting to see and hear abut your trip to England, I think most people go to see the highlights in London, but miss the quieter beauty that’s in the countryside. That being said, I think I;d introduce Mean Rooster to a water pistol/super soaker. He has forgotten his humble start in this world.

    Welcome Home Suzanne, I enjoyed your pictures while you where away as I do your farm. I think Mean Rooster was telling you how he cracked the whip, over the hens while you where a way. :chicken:
    What will you do with all those eggs? Do you sell any, or just cook up a storm?

    You are so right. Serene, beautiful, peaceful, happy. Each of the characters in your play are precious, especially those kittehs.
    Welcome home! What a beautiful home it is.

    Welcome home I thought of you yesterday because I went to a pet fair. They had a pet rescue just for Giant White puppy’s. They had two of them a boy and a girl. Coco is so lucky.

    I am sure they all missed you as much (or more!) than you missed them..just LOOK at their expressions.
    And those kitties? Good thing I don’t have your address or they would turn up missing one day. They are ADORABLE!

    I’m so glad you’re back, although I thoroughly enjoyed your British photo stories. I felt like I was there again!

    Regarding Mean Rooster – I think he really wanted to fly over the fence to hug you because he missed you so much! What good is an attitude if his victim isn’t around?? :dancingmonster:

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
