Unscheduled visit today from the Johnston family...they were lucky to find me home.  Nice to meet RaNay (I told her that's not how you spell it but she insisted), Cash (he attacked my roosters right back), Camden (he used to poop in his back yard just like I do today), and Corey (longtime blog follower and Field Lab stalker).   Ben always enjoys letting people grab a horn.  69,77,44,0,B

east end shuffle

The goal this weekend is to organize the east end of the greenhouse.  Picked up a few items at Home Depot to help put things in their place.  69,79,43,0,C

finally confident

Been almost 4 months since the last check in with my surgeon.  He was pleased to report no hardware movement.  Although I still use one crutch for most of my walking, I have been going crutchless on occasion the past month.  Dr. Merkle told me to keep pushing myself and to get past the psychological barrier in trusting the bones - they are fully healed.  For the first time through this whole ordeal I'm finally confident there will be no further problems with my leg.  62,76,40,0,C

Nice surprise visit yesterday from my old friend and Spencertown neighbor Cathy Grier and her poodles Etta and Lily.  They are on an extended road trip looking for a new place to live.  Ben wanted to be friends but the dogs were far more interested in the rabbits.  57,68,36,0,C
