It’s Homero’s birthday. For the last several years running, we’ve hosted a long weekend camp-out for family and friends. Since his birthday weekend always coincides with Memorial Day, the party tends to drag on for three full days, and gets a bit chaotic towards the end. To be perfectly honest, I’m not going to miss it this year.
We have some new animals. One of Homero’s clients gave him these two Guinea hens. They are a new kind of barnyard fowl to me. I researched them and apparently people keep them for pest control. They eat lots of bad bugs, and even mice and baby rats if they find them. So far, they seem alright, but they bully the hens a bit.
