Meet Francesca

I entered this world on December 13, 2004, in Pinewood, Minnesota. I’m a bit older and certainly far wiser than Sharkey. Like Sharkey, I’m also friendly and quite curious, but I’m more cautious about letting my curiosity get me into trouble. I must admit that we do have fun together. I just know when to stop. Martha describes me as being a bit obsequious, but that’s just my ability to pull the wool over her eyes. I’m just clever! I do have a high opinion about myself, and my fashion sense is magnifique! In fact, Je suis fabuleuse (I am fabulous.)

Yesterday on Martha’s blog, she showed photographs of the devastation that occurred at our farm from last week’s twister.  Sharkey and I wanted to share some more photos on our blog.  Please take a look.

Sharkey and I took a break from taping our new baking show – ha-ha! We went outside and stopped to smell the flowers. We noticed that many flowers in Martha’s garden are various shades of purple. We’ll have to ask her about that.

Heat Wave

Everyone has been complaining about how hot and humid it is.  In fact, it’s being called a heat wave.  As you know, Sharkey and I love being outdoors, but these excessive temperatures make it really unpleasant for furry creatures – even in the shade!

You know how we, Frenchies, are always looking for things to do around the farm.  The day we visited Maureen, the business manager, at the stable office, we also looked into the room where Martha keeps her enormous collection of photographs.  They are very neatly organized, but Sharkey and I wanted to help her out …

Frenchie Bocce Anyone?

Frenchie Bocce Anyone?

Posted by Francesca

Bocce, in one form or another, is one of the world’s most popular ball games.  Its popularity is nothing new:  Roman soldiers played it, probably with round stones, while they waited to fight the Punic Wars.  In 1388, England’s Richard II actually outlawed bocce because he worried that his subjects were spending too little time …

Sharkey and I were enjoying the great outdoors when I decided to give squirrel chasing a rest and explore a little nearby building.  The contents were quite amazing and it got my wheels turning.  Of course, getting Sharkey to cooperate is another story.

What's Down the Squirrel Hole Anyway?

Sharkey and I were outside yesterday when quite suddenly, a very strange sensation came over us.  It was almost savage and we wanted squirrel.  Hunting is fun but it is also difficult.  Good thing we are fed on a regular basis.
