Digging A Hole To China

Hello, Benjamin from Brothers Campfire here!

The drive home from work was full of opinions with all the folks I had with me in the car! Thank you for stopping by and thank you for the Diet Coke!

I returned from work to see the grass is beginning to turn green and flowers are blooming!

Willow Manor is off to a good start for Spring!

I also came home to see a huge hamburger with a thick slab of pineapple in it! I will never lose weight eating such things!

We went off to church. On our return, we found that the heat light had gone out for the ducklings. I sit here in my living room with ducks, geese, and a rat named Claire. A trip to the feed store will fix that. We do not need a zoo inside.

Last year in this day was a busy one. The man formerly known as the twelve-year veteran of life dug this duck pond out. He wanted to dig to China, but I am pretty sure it would have led to the Indian Ocean. Our pond would have been quite brackish.

Well, that is all for now. Have a beautiful day!

        Well, you are 12 hours ahead of me! I am in NL, Canada. What time you looking at showing the ducklings on Saturday? I am a early riser… Have a look and see what would work for you. Thank you for the consideration!

          Oh, I see. We are in quite different time zones. I wake up an hour after your last comment. 5 AM Mountain Time. I will try to get an early duck stream soon!

    Love the you tube videos. Awe boys digging holes, the kids next door and our kids dug a trench. My husband jokes with our daughter that her future husband is digging the foundation for their homestead and he will give the chicken coop for their house. She thought it was hysterical.

    Wow! Nice post, great photos, wonderful video! Thank’s for share, Benjamin.
    Thank’s for the Diet Coke. Recipe: Lemon juice, slices of lemon, ginger powder, mix, add ice and at least Coca cola without sugar. Enjoy!
    Keep well.
