My days are never boring.
In fact, my days are so dang amazing that I could write a book.
If. I. Only. Had. Time!
The farm has taught me many lessons.
Perhaps the most important is this.
Never, ever go anywhere without your camera...
and a fully charged battery!
Because you never know what you might see in your travels around the farm.
What do you mean chickens don't usually nap with dogs?
One of the first things I encountered on my way to do AM chores yesterday
In a tree.
This was a first.
He usually greets me on the road and hops into the gator for a ride to breakfast.
I have no idea!
Then later in the day I noticed that Sammy had been sitting in the same spot
on the edge of the woods...
which is quite unusual.
Sammy is usually off hunting, or visiting neighbors, or visiting his farm friends.
He just sat there staring.
"What are you up to SammySam?" I asked.
Out of the corner of my eye, I noticed something in the trees.
It seems our Sammy (the Hunter) had run something up a tree.
I got a little closer...
I'm pretty sure that groundhogs don't usually climb trees.
(look at those claws!)
You've got to admit, he is kind of cute.
Groundhogs are a nuisance on farms.
The holes they dig can break a horse's leg...
so I usually don't mind if Sammy hunts them.
But this fellow?
Well, it didn't seem quite fair to let Sammy have him
after he worked so hard to get away.
So... I loaded Sammy into the gator and home we went.
To call the fire department.
"Hello? Yes, this is Bee Haven Acres. It seems we have a groundhog
stuck in a tree."
"What, you won't send a ladder truck out for a groundhog?"
So, you see....never leave home without your camera!
And if you want to understand why I write this blog?
It's because things like this just need to be shared!
