Eugene is here today fixing the creek crossing in the sheep field and working in the upper pasture for the cows. He crafted this handy swinging blockade for the crossing. Hopefully the sheep won’t figure it out. If they do, further measures will have to be taken.
It’s SO nice to have him here to help me get everything set up properly.
Meanwhile, when I went down to inspect the finished product, I spied this.
I have been looking for this boot for days!! I’ve asked everyone who has been here to keep an eye out for my boot. I don’t know if it was always right there, or got moved from wherever it was hiding, but I was so excited to find it. I actually keep two pairs of these rubber chore boots–because they are so vital to operations. Chloe is a shoe/boot stealer. I was getting nervous that I only had a pair and a half. I was expecting her to take off with the same boot from the other pair any time now, leaving me with two left boots.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve taken off my sandals while sitting on the porch, and after not paying attention for a second, looked down to discover one sandal missing. Then I’m hopping around the house in one sandal looking for my other one.
And yelling, CHLOE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Back in the goat yard where she belongs and where she can’t steal any of my shoes.)
