Hello everyone! I hope you are all doing well. Things have been moving right along here. I’m trying to think of what all has been happening since my last post and the first thing that comes to mind is our sausage making. Our local supermarket had pork on sale for $1.58 a pound. So Jess and I got some, the butcher ground it up for us and we made sausage Saturday. It was a lot of fun.
Another thing that has been happening here concerns our dog Jasper.
About 2 weeks ago, on a Thursday night, we heard him barking and running off the coyotes. We did not see him all day Friday. This was very usual as he mostly stays close to home. On Saturday, we were really getting concerned. Jess and kids came up. She and I were going to a friend’s baby shower. We drove all over the farm looking for him but didn’t see him anywhere. At the shower, I told all the ladies about him being missing. On Sunday afternoon, the husband of one of the ladies found him in the woods across the Parkway. Praise the Lord, he was alive. We think perhaps he was chasing the coyotes and ran across the parkway and maybe got hit with a car, the damage seemed to be contained to his back and leg. We will never know for sure. He was very hungry, very thirsty and could not walk. Hubby had to carry him out of the woods back up to the truck. We have been doctoring (babying) him since we brought him home. He can now walk but still favors his leg. He seems to still be in pain but not near as much as when we first found him. I think it will take a long while for him to recover. We are thankful to have him back with us. He would definitely be missed.
Today is a beautiful day here in Floyd. Lots of sunshine, blue skies, wind. Temperature is 55 degrees. A GREAT day for drying clothes on the line. I hope you all have a wonderful day and God bless.
