While in a drug stupor, I seem to have found multiple new guests. I wanted to take a moment to say welcome!
I lost a few at the time of the wreck, so it is nice to see more and new names, faces, handles here. And thank you for sticking it out with me for now. If you really need homesteading ideas, help, or what not to do, I have six years worth of posts to find what you need. You can also email me from my profile page if you have questions. I answer what I can, or send you to a different homesteader that will know.
I also want to say thank you. Thank you for the cards, letters and emails. As well as your kind comments. It has helped greatly. I tried to reply, and I really hope that I didn't say something uncouth.
I think now is a time to reintroduce everyone to the players. As the line up has changed a bit.
I am Phelan. Nice to meet you.
Husband is played by my husband. He's name isn't as well known as it was a few years back, however he is still a respected motorcycle builder and mechanic. Oh and I tend to gush about him.
We have been together 16 years, married in full costume on Halloween. We have three boys together, Small, Medium and Large.
We have several cats and dogs. The dogs are Buckets, Sprocket and Axle. Only cat you need to know is May Maybe Maynard. The black cat.
We share our yard with a plethora of chickens, which I stopped counting how many when 17 chicks started coming out of the evergreens. And here I thought those hens had been eaten.
We also raise black belly Barbados sheep. A breed listed on the endangered barn yard species list.
I guess we have a thing for raising critically endangered barn animals, as we breed, milk and eat Long Legged Kerry cattle and American Milking Short Horns.
Kerry names (because I will type them without thinking if you might know I am talking about cows)
Urth (Urth's Umbra)
(We sold several calves and one dam)
The short horns are
Yart ( Yart is also a blogger that got a calf named after her. Play your cards right and you too could have a calf named after you.)
Our bees swarmed and moved their hive. It's somewhere within a mile however, as we still have to wear shoes outside as not to step on one and get stung.
I think I have rambled long enough. Again, thank you! And welcome to my little world.
