Default Had a surprise visitor to the shop awhile ago

...a Duroc sow wandered in. She and her companion, who was too timid to come in, belong to a gal about 1/2 mile away. I guided them both away, towards their home. However, they got side tracked and wandered into another neighbor's horse corrall. Those two horses were not happy. They kicked them, knocked them over and stomped them good. No worse for wear, they managed to escape. Finally, I and the horse owner used our atvs and got them headed home. We watched til they went in their pen. She needs to fix her fences.

Ah, the joys of rural ..... really rural...living.

Some things about living in the sticks are real fun.

I found a penguin on the side of the road and put it in the back seat. I went up to the gas station where they still pump your gas and the attendant looked startled and ask me what I was going to do with the penguin. I told I was going to take it to the zoo.

The next day I went back to the same gas station with the penguin still in the back seat and the attendant was quite surprised to see the penguin in the back seat and asked me if I had taken the penguin to the zoo. The attendant looked surprised when I said:

"Yes I took the Penguin to the zoo yesterday and today I am taking him to the movies."
