Dear Zachary

Cut to the chase.. Found this movie on Netflix and it seemed to be highly rated so I cued it up. I had read the synopsis so I knew what it was about and it exceeded my expectations. I laughed and cried and cried some more. Absolutely heart wrenching and it really touched me in a way that can only be understood by my husband. This movie will stay in my thoughts for a long while

Chicken vs Dog

We had a nice little treat for dinner of T bones,crab legs, and lobster tails. Homer sat so patiently waiting for his cut! I threw the t bone out the back door thinking the chickens were all in bed but noooooo they were not and they were quite interested in the bone as well.

A few girls ventured up to Homer to check out the grubb but he picked up the bone and ran off. About 3 minutes later I decided to check on him and went outside. He didn't have the bone and seemed to be looking for it and the chickens were running around as well.

Doing a quick count I realized Cowgirl was missing and I spotted her clear on the other side of the yard backed up into the corner. As I approached her with 5 chickens and a dog tailing me I saw that she had commandeered the missing bone. She must have snatched it away from Homer!

I got the bone back and brought Homer inside with it. I gave it to him and he promptly disappeared. I found him under the Christmas tree making sure no one would find him or his bone.

I am in heaven!

I won't bore you with the details but I stumbled upon the group Vitamin String Quartet on You Tube and I am hooked. The group covers some of my favorite songs and groups from AC/DC and Led Zeppelin to Green Day and Evanescence all on violin,viola,cello, and bass.

I am having a hard time deciding on my favorites but I enjoy No Doubts *Don't Speak* so I will leave you with that.
