Today was the chicks' coming out day and out they did come.
And immediately started scratching in the leaves, happy as could be. Fancy Pants was quite curious about them. Too curious for Darla's comfort and that hen swelled and rose up like a cobra and went after that little rooster. A fighting cock could not have been fiercer or more furious. She backed him up a few yards and then Liberace saw what was going on. He rushed over and chased the little guy off and that was that. They've stayed close to the coop and hen house all day long, going back in and out. This is how the mamas do it, keeping the young'uns close to safety and protection until she feels more confident about them being out.
Lily brought the kids out today so that her daddy could work on her car. She needed an axle replaced. Now to me, that sounds like a job that one would take to a car repair place but I guess that Mr. Moon's garage is actually a car repair place, or it was today, anyway, after he pulled his big boat out and pulled the car into its place. The kids immediately discovered the new (very old) go-cart and Maggie was the most charmed with it of all. She immediately buckled herself in.
And then Gibson joined her.
Owen climbed the mulberry tree.
We all have days like that.
