The brownest egg any of us ever did see, and it belongs to one of our chickens. It is a small egg and so we can assume our hen has just started laying. Oh how we hope she will turn out to be a good layer and that we can breed for these rich looking eggs!
The only other good news this week was that I saw three lambs on Valley Road. Lambs! But the driver kept going and I didn’t get a photo.
Now for the bad new (not news to anybody who is a Facebook friend of my hubby):
We all caught pinkeye from Kiki who caught it from a guest last weekend, and look like extras in some Halloween horror extravaganza. Austin posted a photo of his eye on Facebook; I think these glasses are gruesome enough.
The public health spokesperson has asked all infected persons to stay home – but sooner or later, we run out of food. I went straight from the car to the nearest shop to get dark eyeware. And then I joined the throngs of Cool Folks in Shades on the street and in the stores. It’s an epidemic of discomfort and inconvenience
Thank God it isn’t something that blinds or kills.
