Operating the Cider Press

Posted by Francesca

Finally!  It was our turn to use the cider press and make apple cider.  Sharkey picked a lot of our favorite varieties of apples and Laura Acuna washed them well.  The cider press was ready and waiting and the whole process of cranking and pressing was so much fun.

Today on Martha’s blog, she posted about making apple cider again.  Franny was really interested in the whole process and thought that we should make some cider of our own.  I told her that I would pick the apples and wash them.  I found my favorite tree and picked a bunch, however, washing them was …

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!

Martha wanted all of her pooches at the TV show recently so that we could model some frightfully fun pet costumes for the PetSmart Halloween Costume Contest.   While we were there, we got to visit with all of our TV friends.  It is always so much fun being the center of attention!

Uncle Carlos came to visit yesterday.  It was a rainy day and we really wanted to get out of the house for a while.  He said that he would take us for a spin around the farm in the Kawasaki, one of our favorite things to do.  Come along for the ride!

Francesca and I told you the other day how we set up flip cams in the kitchen as part of our sting operation.  I think our French lineage can be traced to Chief Inspector Jacques Clousseu because we have proven ourselves to be superior sleuths!  Check this out and there’s even more to come!

Let Them Eat Cake, or Not

Let Them Eat Cake, or Not

Posted by Francesca

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.
