I called Mr. D who got up immediately, got dressed and grabbed the shotgun and headed to the coop. We've had several invaders in the coop over the years... mink, fox and bear. We were a little dumbfounded when there was this fellow sitting on the back roost... eyes wide open staring at us.
It was quite a surprise and we're glad he's out. Our chickens tend not to lay too well when they've been aggitated. We like the idea of him coming around and tending to the rodent population, but probably we've seen the last of him for quite some time.
We also this week had an incident not so pleasant. We have a radiant heater in the camper that has really cut our heating costs down to size. On Saturday evening I was doing some sewing and got up to start dinner and smelled something hot. I looked and realized the cord to the heater was smoking so I yanked it out of the socket and this is what it left behind....
Thankfully the company will replace all this. We've determined that the cord on the heater is just not heavy enough for the draw and the plug needs to be beefed up too, so hopefully we can get this done soon and be able to use our little heater again.
Sorry about the fuzzy pictures :( I'm just not very good with this camera I'm afraid.
Hope you have a wonderful day and survive the snow... getting 4-6 inches again today. I am not enjoying all the cold and snow this winter, but when I think about it... all things are from the hand of God, so guess I shouldn't be complaining about it so much. Thank you Lord.. even for the snow.
Happy belated Valentine's Day to all of you too...
