Regular readers of our blog know how much Francesca and I love to chase animals.  Yesterday, we were out and about and I realized that we hadn’t seen the donkeys for a while.  We located the paddock that they were in and I proceeded to have one yelping good time.  As usual, Francesca stayed on …

Maine in autumn

What kind of balls are these?

Sharkey and I were outside exploring the other day, when we found some strange things in one of the wooded areas of the garden. At first we thought we found some balls to play with but, as it turned out, that wasn’t the case.
