On Labor Day weekend, we went to our house in East Hampton where we spent a few days of action-packed fun.  We had lots of company and we did a great deal of exploring.  Kevin Sharkey, who I’m named after, was with us with camera in hand.  Give me a break, Kevin!

You may recall when we posted a blog last July about the new guinea fowl that were being raised in the corn crib.  Well, we noticed the other day that the corn crib was empty and we were wondering where the guinea fowl disappeared to.

Martha bought a couple of little covered pails for the kitchen and we, Frenchies, were wondering what they were for.  Taking off the lid revealed the answer and we got to thinking…

If you got the impression from yesterday’s blog that we weren’t having too much fun in Maine, that simply isn’t the case.  We were just stating the fact that not everything is fun and games and worldly dogs, as we are, experience lulls just like everybody else.  But, today’s blog makes up for everything because …

While we were in Maine, the garlic and onions were harvested at the farm in Bedford.  I recalled this blog that I posted in August of 2009.

As you know, we Frenchies have been away at Skylands, but we were told that the catmint was being harvested in the Bedford garden.  We remembered this blog posting from 2009 and decided to share it again.  Silly, silly cats!

Hey everyone!  It’s Clive, Rufus, and Billie filling in for F & S while they’re still away in Maine.  Gosh!  How we miss those bold little Frenchies, who like to bark at our feet.  They better watch it or they just may get a good kick one of these days!  Anyway, here’s a little update …

Scrubbing the Stable
