You all remember the story of the City Mouse and the Country Mouse.The City Mouse goes to visit his country cousin, we had our own version of that this weekend!
(To put in prospective how gia-normouse The Boy is,he and City Mouse are the same age!)
Every year The Boy's Nana and Papaw come and visit around his birthday.They were here this week end and brought one of The Boy's cousins,we will call her City Mouse.City Mouse has spent her entire life in a big city in Southern California,she recently moved to Texas but still is in a big city.She is one of the sweetest,well mannered, pleasant young ladies I have been around ever.So I say to our sweet City Mouse,please come and visit again!
City Mouse was excited about visiting her country cousin and seeing all the animals.I could tell she was a little unsure at first but, she has a little bit of country girl in her heart I think, she didn't let that stop her!
She helped with all the farm chores! She took turns helping me, then The Boy with our different animals.
She was undaunted when all these big, hungry farm animals surrounded her!
She even risked getting "donkey lipped" to give Clyde his fix...er..I mean treat!
Of course, Anna Belle had to have a treat too,who could resist such a cute and tame little Irish Dexter calf!
The thing City Mouse wanted to do the most was gather eggs! That is a sign of a farm girl heart for sure! The first day the lazy girls only laid one! The second day she got three! Then, the day she left I got 3 and two were green,I am sorry she missed the green ones!
One was a bullet egg! That is what we call the skinny pullet eggs because when The Boy,being a typical military obsessed man child,first saw a pullet egg he said those chickens are laying bullets! I told City Mouse if she visited this spring or summer,we often get a dozen or more a day!
You all know Murry got a lot of extra attention this weekend! He almost ran his little legs off keeping up with City Mouse and The Boy!
Here is a picture of Murry all worn out and sleeping in my lap while I watched TV last night!
So there you have it,a fun filled farm weekend! I love being able to show how we live to people who have never seen it before. When Nana ask City Mouse what she thought about country life she said it is a lot of work! She was here in the slow time, just wait until spring!
