Mad! Still Mad! Even Madder!

Mad! Still mad! Even madder! Those are the feelings that I have had since Saturday evening when we were headed to another town to a benefit for a young family with some very large medical bills and an ill child, when some young girl decided to make a left turn in front of us when we were literally less than two car lengths from her. I drove a large car -1995 Buick Roadmaster and we had our head lights on as it had rained some and was cloudy but she didn't see us according to what she told the officer taking the report.
I was mad at the scene and I was not a pleasant person to either her or the poor man who tried to help me because I was limping.

New Farm Animals

We have some new animals here on the farm. We purchased some guineas and baby turkeys last week. The turkeys are just babies and were just a few days old when we got them, but the guineas are older.
The guineas are going to make good "watch dogs" as they like to make a lot of noise. Everytime we walk out into the yard they tend to make noise and let us know that they are watching. I have heard that they keep the prey animals away from the chickens and stuff and that is why I decided we needed them. Living with woods surrounding the property makes the farm a nearby meal for coyotes.
The turkeys are going to be a 4-H project for Bridget. She will also be showing a pony or horse as well as rabbits, chickens, and possibly her dog. She is going to be very active when fair season arrives and I am sure we will spend a lot of time there.
Wishing everyone a good week.
