Somerset Memories Toot!!!

Toot X 2!! I got an email for 2 more layouts......and again..the layouts they picked are very loved...and new...they're "how many mikes" and "his durango"...so super geeked about that......another thing I am geeked about is I just got my copy of the june/july issue of Somerset Memories....I swear I am driving the girls nuts....with it.....they really don't want to hear another thing.....Okay this is me reading the magazine...yesterday...in the other room this is all you hear "SHUT UP!!!!!.....SHUT UP!!!!" okay by the way that's a good shut up...I am so excited I am going to scan a couple pages to post later......and I know that all my peeps are going to run out and pick up this issue.....More good news is that today is the Yard Sale...at Scrappy Chic...I love digging through other peoples old supplies....just hoping to come across some lost treasures......
and then some more bad news on the Compher farm.....I had this knock on my door yesterday.......with a man standing at my door....with his pickup parked in my driveway...and a big dog in the front seat.....first thing out of his mouth..."my dog got one of your chickens" oh...nooo....he felt awful...kept apologizing...I know that things like this happen........I got tell he really felt like an ass....so I grab the shovel...and start looking for my chickens not knowing what I am going to see..well I can't find any of them......so I am out in the yard like a crazy person..."here...chick..chickk...here...chick..chick" okay no kidding they actually come to that....so all of the sudden out of the tall weeds...I see 2 of my girls come out of the field....and then find another hiding in a corner of the coop.....but I also find a pile of white feathers...and black feathers...so we had 4 missing!!
So of course I start to lose it......these were Ed's chickens.....I am trying to take care of them...and I am sucking at it....I lost 2 last weekend...and now 4 this weekend.....but this morning.....2 more came home....so it looks like we only lost 2 a...rooster and a chicken.....but now I know that the dog...obviously is getting loose and keeps coming back......and I hate that because I struggle with the fact that I like them free in the yard.....just like my cat's I like that they can go outside....but it's like you have to take a chance that something will happen....I don't want our chickens...pinned up.....I love seeing them....all over the yard...but to be honest they're pinned up today....just want to make sure that dog ain't coming back today.......Okay enough blabbing......
