More Cinders on the Driveway!

 I added as much texture as I could to the front paddock so the horses could navigate.

 I am sorry to say that I still have not found Sophie.
Hoping that she will come home soon.

 I was not very productive this afternoon, until 3:30
when I attended a Town/Gown meeting at the Lodge in the Park.
The College President and Village Mayor host these gatherings
and they are always well run and informative.  There must have been over
35 people in attendance, who are all interested in working together 
as a community.
When I left at 5, the sun was in all it's glory after having
a very grey day.

 Meanwhile back at the Ranch....
 there was no dinner in sight.

 So, we drove over to Holley

and had their specials for dinner.
 (Black and Blue Burger)
 (Southwest Burger)

 Home at last.
Night all.


  1. I hope Sophie makes her way home soon. That racoon probably scared the stuffing out of her. I'm tired of the ice. Had snow and ice again last night but it's almost melted today. It was 45! Nutty weather. Dinner looked great.

  2. Sophie, hear everyone calling your name and come home. Could she be way up in the high rafters?

  3. Dear Lori, I so hope Sophie comes home. Back in the 1970s, a raccoon chased and then followed Ishmael up a honey locust tree. She waited for long minutes. I begged my brother to climb up and bring her done. He maintained she'd come down when she was ready, but I was so distraught that he finally climber the tree and returned her to my arms. A wonderful brother! Peace.

  4. I hope Sophie finds her way back.
