Had to pick up some artwork that was framed by my friend Lesli and I got a closer look at her plain & fancy (exotic) chickens. She also had day old chicks that will free-range and become their chicken dinners for the next year.
Reading The Bucolic Plague by Josh Kilmer Purcell, one of the Beekman Boys. I can't stop laughing, seriously... I'm not the only one. The NYT reviewer said " “…My Amtrak seat mate in the Quiet Car, a complete stranger, insisted that I read out loud the scene — a goat in labor — that was making me laugh so hard I was crying…Kilmer-Purcell’s book is manically funny, sweetly open and trusting, and slick and snarky. Must be something in the soil.”) They would love Lesli's farm. Lesli would like their farm. Here are "10 Things (Josh) Learned from Goats". My favs, 1,2,4,7, and 10. Hilarious!
