but eventually the moose stumbled back into the creek & was rescued again. The baby moose followed the man home.
The man has only a small cabin so he took the moose to another neighbor, who took these photos.
They took the moose the next day to a woman who looks after wild animals & she put it in a pen with a rescued fawn.
We have been having rain, rain and more rain this weekend. I don't know how many inches so far but the ground is saturated and there are puddles everywhere. It's a good thing we postponed our Paws On Parade fundraiser until October 11th. Of course for me that day was already booked with three other functions. We were going to have the GMC's, God's Mature Children, our senior citizens group at our church down to our cottage for a cookout, a dinner to attend that evening and a function in the afternoon. Yikes! We will have the GMC's down another time and the other two things I will have to just play it by ear but I will be at our fundraiser!
Just got the weather report and they are telling us that a hurricane is on its way here to Maine. The coastal regions are going to get hit the worst and we are about 25-30 miles inland so maybe we will be spared the worst. We are going to take in all the porch cushions, make sure the barn windows are tight and put the cars in the garage in case any trees fall. I'll go out after church tonight and pick up some more bottled water to have on hand. We have a generator that will take care of the house and Mom and Dad's apartment so we should be all set.
We went to Ground Round after church this morning. The kids like it and it's a bit more low key then the Rudder. Have you ever had deep fried cheese cake? All my intentions of watching what I eat went out the window when they brought that out. Also the mini doughboys with chocolate sauce, strawberry sauce and ice cream to dip them in.........sigh......there's always another day to diet I guess.........
In keeping it real here on the ole' hobby farm I have a question for you. Do you ever walk into your house and smell a stink? Now don't say that you haven't because I won't believe you. Anywho, I had been smelling something a bit suspect and couldn't figure out what it was. I thoroughly washed out the refrigerator, taking out anything that was outdated or had fuzzy mold on it. I won't believe you if you say you've never found something in the back of your refrigerator in Tupperware that had fuzzed out either. Well all was clean and fresh but I still could smell something in the kitchen. I started cleaning cupboards, sink, garbage disposal, you name it and STILL could smell something unsavory. This was getting on my nerves. Big time. Finally I thought I would clean out the cupboard under the sink so I took everything out and there in the back corner was this:
Any ideas what it might be? No it's not anything that comes out of a horse. It's a petrified potato! I keep a bin for my potatoes under the sink and evidently one got knocked out and fell behind everything and obviously had been 'ripening' for some time...........GAG! Now I don't claim to be Mar#tha Ste#wart with everything in it's place and a place for everything but I do try to keep a clean home. I was so glad when I finally found where the offensive odor was coming from! Like I said, just keeping it real, I've already lost all self respect on this blog from some of the things I have talked about (remember the spray on tan debacle or the one piece girdle thingy?) so what more is a petrified potato going to add to the mix? :o)
Please keep my Mom in prayer tomorrow as she goes in for her surgery. Her name is Ginny.
