Days 216, 217 & 218

Good morning! It's been a busy couple of days! Casie is back to kicking gates and fences. The problem with that is that the fence is barbed wire! Sooooo, twice in one day she hooked the fence under her new shoe! We had to cut the fence, tie her and work it back out. So needless to say...we had to remove 2 strands of barbed wire from two pastures. Did I say we? I guess I meant Mark. Not so easy when it's not your fence! But, Mr. Haynes said go ahead since there is no reason for it to go all the way down to the ground. Most animals won't crawl under the fence ;). Especially when said animals are 17+ hands tall! We had a Birthday boy on Tuesday! I made him strawberry shortcake that didn't get eaten until last night! We always get in too late! But, it was a happy bday just the same. Got to catch a couple of blue gill. So, yesterday we were working on a chicken coop for the chickens that are here. They are half grown and getting BIG!! The coop is 10 X 20, and the yard is 20 X 30! Since there are only 8 of them, this might be considered over kill:) But, fun building. The last thing I built was the wagon so I'm a little out of practice. I had to relearn the "don't drop the 2X4's on Mark's head" the hard way. He'll be fine. I didn't really drop it on him. He thought he could hold it up higher with the end of his hammer (only 1 ladder). That didn't work out well in the end. So, off we go to finish it up and start fencing another pasture. That's the plan for the day. We do have a new prayer request. An unnamed 16 yr old girl that tried to commit suicide. We just pray that she finds her way to the Lord and all of His joy! Comments: Crickette...I'd play heck catching him anyway. Jusy sayin' Cindy...Sounds yummy! Cloe's...Amen! Sandi...Thanks! Don...Thanks, up and running again! See y'all soon! ;) God bless and have a great day! Faith
