Hello, Farm


It’s so good to come home. I missed my hills. And my Giant Puppy.
And my goats.
And my little donkey.
(And even Dookie.)
I missed my sunflowers nodding in the warm breeze.
My garden, overflowing with tomatoes and cucumbers and corn. (Yes, corn! The corn has recovered.)
And, oh my, THE KITTENS.
I missed the kittens.
It’s all so peaceful.
So happy.
So serene…..
…..and safe…..
Oh, no–
I know you missed me, too, Mean Rooster. I know you aren’t going to–

    Welcome home!! We missed you! I’m thinking fried chicken sounds good for Sunday dinner 😉

  2. Jan Alexander says:

    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.

  3. Carol Ann says:

    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:

  4. Lynda Dunham-Watkins says:

    Glad you had a good time and nice break! Really enjoyed your England tour, lovely countryside.

  5. Lisa L. says:

    welcome home!!!!

  6. Kathleen in Michigan says:

    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.

  7. Shelly says:

    I’m glad your back safe and sound.

  8. IowaDeb says:

    Welcome home Suzanne,we missed you. There’s no place like home!

    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.

  10. Susie says:

    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?

  11. Miss Becky says:

    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.

  12. Senta Sandberg says:

    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.

  13. trish says:

    I missed you and all the animals. Love Mean Rooster!!! You gotta love all that attitude!!! I think he missed you too!!! No one to terrorize while you were gone. His life was boring for a week. lol

  14. Heidi says:

    Luky for him that you own him – he would have been soup at my place by now!!! LOL Glad your trip went well and that you are home safely!!! *hugs to you*

  15. catslady says:

    Welcome back!

  16. SuzieQ says:

    Glad you’re back. I missed the farm photos…and the animals…and the recipes…and everything else! :sheepjump: :sheep: :snoopy: :woof: :cowsleep: :chicken:

  17. The Retired One says:

    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!

  18. .Nancy in Iowa says:

    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:

  19. Rituparna says:

    welcome back !
    Oh my your roaster seems to be angry at you for having left him alone …
    He was just coming over the gate to greet you wasn’t he ….
    So whatz on the menu ?

  20. Bev says:

    Welcome back! You know you are the one chick mean rooster can’t control and it drives him crazy.
