Motoring in Skylands II

Posted by Francesca

Well, the weather improved during our last trip to Skylands, our home in Maine and Martha thought it would be a good idea to go for a ride in the picnic boat.  Sharkey and I usually run the show, but since Sharkey wasn’t with us, G.K. decided that he was going to be the first …

Being in Maine Without Sharkey

Being in Maine Without Sharkey

Posted by Francesca

The last time we went to Skylands, Martha thought it best that Sharkey remain back home at the farm.  Sharkey had a bug bite that she scratched too much and developed a rash on her neck.  Because we were concerned, G.K. and I licked her rash, but that just made things worse.  How were we …

Hunting Canaries?  We Don't Think So!

Hunting Canaries? We Don't Think So!

Posted by F&S

Princess Peony, one of the calico Persian cats, is a very persistent bird hunter.  We understand that cats are carnivorous and that bird hunting is simply instinctual.  However, we have to draw the line at Martha’s pet canaries.  Leave the canaries alone!

Over the Fourth of July weekend, we joined Martha in East Hampton and we took a little stroll through the very old cemetery in the town.  Francesca and Sharkey seemed a little scared at first until I assured them that cemeteries are perfectly safe places to be.

We, Frenchies, noticed that the door was open to the tenant house and we wanted to see what was going on.  The floors in that house are highly polished and very slippery to walk on, so one must always be very careful.

We were driving with Uncle Carlos going past the tenant house when I remembered hearing something about washing the windows of that building.  Washing windows is loads of fun, especially when I sit back and watch Sharkey do all the work!

A Garden Tour Means Cookies!!! Or Not

Posted by F&S

Some of you commented that you couldn’t see the images from Monday’s blog about G.K. wanting to be a squirrel chaser.  Therefore, we made an executive decision to let it run a second day in hopes that it could be viewed by all.  Our apologies, but it seems that our blog server is having some …

Exploring Bar Harbor

Posted by Francesca

On Martha’s blog today, she posted a lot of beautiful photos of planting the giant urns on the Skylands terrace.  When the work was complete, Uncle Carlos suggested a drive to Bar Harbor so that Ryan could see some of the local flavor.  It’s always a fun town to visit.
