Within the past 24 hours we have lost two chickens. It’s farm reality, but sad none-the-less. It appears a bacterial infection has seeped its way into the flock. And right now I’m like Hulk Hogan, ready to suplex it to the mat. All should be well now. With the amount of rain we’ve had, and those darn dirty ducks, it was inevitable.
On the farm, death comes with life. So tonight we mourn the loss of both Kate (the red) and The Princess Royal (the gray). The farm will move on, but they won’t be forgotten. And you were my wake up call. A farm doesn’t just Charlotte’s Web itself through eternity, but it’s a finely oiled machine that needs constant attention!
I leave you with my favorite Ronald Reagan line – from the Challenger disaster. It sounds ridiculous, but Kate and The Princess would have loved it. We will never forget them…as they…’slipped the surly bonds of earth’ to ‘touch the face of God.’
