Is This Hawk Shivering?


I think maybe, but he is hanging around just the same. Hope you are all enjoying a fine Christmas Eve and have a wonderful day tomorrow. Here at Northview the boss is filling up all the feeders with extra haylage, the chickens have fresh shavings in the little coop Mappy gave us, the porch kitties are enjoying some of the stuff they stuff inside turkeys before they send them out (the heart and neck are boiling nicely on the stove) and Nick had three big biscuits instead of one this morning. Thank you to everyone who sent us good wishes or lovely Christmas cards. You are wonderful and we are very grateful.


Oh, and I got a Christmas present yesterday...well actually I got several, but some were more welcome then others. I love, love, love the Norfolk Island pine. I have four now, getting bigger and bushier and adding lots of green to my jungle in the living room. And the tube feeder to replace the old one that I dropped last week. I am delighted as are the gold finches and chickadees.

Thanks guys!!

However, as to the summons to jury duty. Cmon, it's Christmas Eve, couldn't it have waited?

Eh, I am not too worried about it though. I am too darned opinionated to ever get chosen. And if I do, well, it pays a lot better than dairy farming.

Have a great day!

I actually enjoyed my two times on a jury, learned a lot about the legal system and felt quite sanctimonious when other people tried to get out of being good citizens. :)


Have a great Christmas.

Jan, I used to have to try to opt out, as I had small kids, ailing, elderly in-laws under our care, and as always, the farm. Now I am willing, but don't expect to be chosen. I don't believe those who choose juries think much of folks who are firm believers in personal responsibility. It has gone out of style I guess. Merry Christmas to you too and thanks!

To well read as well.

As for the pay...as long as the commute is short it would be an activity that would--on the whole and on its own--be in the black. That hass got to be better than dairy farming!
