Well, heck, I was just settling in with some hand drawn house plans, a great cup of French Press coffee, and some fresh fruit... and now I have to hustle? That's not what Sunday mornings are all about!
So when I looked out our front window, this is the view I saw:
These Chinooks were scooping water from my father-in-law's pond to dump on our neighbor's home. Then they left and Blackhawks took their place and continued scooping and dumping. It was very noisy and exciting on our street!
And more animal news... many of the chickens/guineas/swans, etc. that we turned loose have stayed around their home, and with much effort, we stopped the fires from finishing off the place. I have gone there twice daily to refill food and water. We managed to catch quite a few chicken and relocate them to our large pen until the owners can come back to their house. We will help them catch the rest of the birds as best we can and get them in their repective pens.
I keep having to chase their guinea hens home. They are quite comical!
We have adopted this little sweet kitten who's owner has not come home for days and his house is all burned up. He and his brother are safe and sound at our house. We have named them Ashley and Agent Smolder.
