CONGRATS APRIL THE GIRAFFE NOW IT'S OFF TO THE FARM

 Been up since 7:30am watching a giraffe give birth live streaming on the Internet.  Is this a great world or what?  Congratulations to April and her beautiful little (well, if 6 feet tall is little) calf.  It makes the world just a little bit brighter to see something beautiful like this...



Now it's off to the farm to get some more stuff done.  Beautiful day today, weather is cool(ish) and overcast.  Have a load of stuff in the back of the jeep (cleaning out one of the storage units) and have some thing to plant, need rot check the garden and the orchard, edge, and hopefully just sit back a bit and enjoy.  Hopefully I can skip mowing one week and focus on the other stuff.  

Hope your weekend is off to a fabulous start!

The last I heard they decided she was not pregnant!

I popped in right after the calf arrived. I hate I missed the main event but I did get to see his first steps, which was also cool.

For those who have missed the Big event.
