BP Want a Pickle?


The Madonna stands quiet in the mystic woods.

She speaks not, for no words are needed. She is wise beyond words, beyond her age, beyond her place and time.

She is wise beyond her bottom.

Yet it is her bottom that the Seeker seeks, to read its mysteries, to interpret the unspoken wisdom of the Madonna, to get to the bottom of all things, for lo, it is the 21st day.

Beulah Petunia: “I’m PREGNANT, Woman. Leave me alone.”

Notes: It was the June 30 heat that took. There was no evidence of heat on July 21 and no evidence of heat yesterday, day 21. BP is a regular girl. April baby! See all of Beulah Petunia’s adventures here.

    Great Job BP!! another little calf in the spring hope its a girl again!!

    How are you going to break the news to the Big Baby? I don’t think she’s going to be too happy to hear this. I expect there may be some sibling rivalry. Glory Bee never has liked having to share her momma. I can just hear Glory Bee now “but I was here FIRST!” Maybe you should make her some cookies to soften the blow.

    Can I just say, I have been waiting to find out if BP was pregnant? I have no idea why I care but I found that I did. I am so happy for you. You put a lot of work into that “little project”. It’s wonderful news.
