The Trailers
The church who’s giving them to us doesn’t want us to start taking things apart till next week.  They haven’t gotten all their things out yet.  So we’re on hold.  Probably ready to start taking the deck down Tuesday or Wed or Saturday ...  if you can help let us know.  So far three of you have volunteered to help.  The more of you who help the quicker it will go!!!

A guy named Ronnie came out today to look at our site and see where they can go.  He said GEEEE  you got so much room out here they can go anywhere!!!   Looks like mom’s decided to put them near the picnic pavilion.  They’ll be close to the hill looking down on the fields and woods.  It’s a real pretty place.  The two trailers will be side by side with 20 feet of decking in between.  And they picked a place where they can have a tree in the middle of the deck!!!!  That should be real pretty and give the birds a place to sit and poop on the hoomans on the deck!!!!

He’s supposed to call mom tonight and tell her a price for hauling them and for setting them all up.  Paws crossed it’s an itty bitty number and we can raise that much so this can happen!!!!

A Curious Being
We're all a mixture of science AND a soul.

I’d like to introduce my newer friends to Rikki’s Refuge, an amazing organization located in Orange, Virginia.  I’ve had the privilege of visiting and volunteering over several years, and it is truly an experience not to be missed.  Over 1200 creatures are housed there.  Each has their own story of how they came to be rescued, but once they reach the refuge, they find a forever home.

Stop in and see the work of Rikki’s Animal Artists!

Here’s a report I had, “I was just at the library, and it was fun walking in and seeing 2 groups of people looking at the paintings!  The kids thought it was cool that "a pig painted this one" and "a goat painted that one" and "look at the one by the horse!".  They should get people talking, and maybe open some eyes.”
