This man, Captain StrongArms, has built, and continues to build, the nicest home and property a girl could wish for.
And we have the cutest little boy a man and wife could ever wish for.
There just isn't anything he can't do.
I think I'm in love. It's good to be Queen.

to tell you that I milked Dory - the first time and got a quart! An entire QUART!!
Her and I were learning together - it was a rough first few minutes, but we both got over it. Good thing we like each other.
The piglets, they LOVE the milk. Farming is really cool.
want you all to know that I quit drinking coffee creamer. Yeah. Seriously. It was like continuous PMS for a couple weeks straight.
I'm better now. I only have the shakes now and again on days that end with Y.
More useless information. Hey, it has to go somewhere.

ahem. uh, where were we? ah yes. calves.
here, have a go at this;
The first pictures (horizontally) are of BraveHeart. The two pictures following are of Flicker. When they arrived, they were full of energy, curious, and hungry. We had a couple steep hills to climb, with the stress of transport and some other not-so-glamorous stuff that shall remain un-named, but all-in-all they're both doing great. Growing, eating grass, knocking me down for their one bottle of milk a day and generally being calves (read: LAZY!).
I can honestly say that flip flops are not really the desired footwear when one has two calves. The poop just doesn't come off very well.
Here's a video of the "Barnyard"
and, we've added a couple kids to our farm as well.
Life is good. Now if I could just carve out some time to get the garden started.....
