If you read Martha’s blog yesterday, then you know we went hiking while we were in Maine.  You know that Sharkey and I are avid hikers and we’re trying to get G.K. conditioned as a skilled trekker.  And after scaling Parkman Mountain in Acadia National Park, I think the boy has what it takes.

Franny and I were soaking up the warmth of the sun the other day when I suddenly realized something major was happening.  We, Frenchies, have had such an amazing summer and we hoped it would go on forever.  No such luck!

Let Them Eat Cake, or Not

One day last week, when Martha was at home, she gathered all of the grounds crew after their lunch to celebrate Fernando’s birthday.  She served them, what looked to be, a really great cake.  Cake seems to be a weakness for Sharkey and she acted very badly.

The other day, Laura Acuna, the housekeeper, needed to go to the store, so we piled into the car and drove her there.  However, the car was running low on gas and we had to pull into a gas station along the way.  Check this out!

G.K. Goes Apple Picking

G.K. Goes Apple Picking

Posted by Ghenghis Khan

If you’ve been reading Martha’s blog, then you know that it’s been an amazing season for apples here at the farm.  All the animals who eat apples are certainly getting their fill.  And there are all sorts of great smelling apple desserts being made in the kitchen.  Martha wanted apples delivered to the TV studio …
