Cab Ride

With the Holidays upon us I would like to share a personal experience about drinking and driving.

As you may know some of us have been known to have brushes with the authorities from time to time on the way home after a "social session" out with friends. Well, I was out for an evening with friends and had several cocktails followed by some rather nice white wine. Feeling jolly I still had the sense to know that I might have been slightly over the limit.

That's when I did something that I've never done before - I took a cab home.

Sure enough on the way home there was a police road block, but since it was a cab they waved it past. I arrived home safely without incident.

This was a real surprise as I had never driven a cab before, I don't know where I got it and now that it's in my garage I don't know what to do with it!

Be safe and take a cab!

It's a Big World

The Triplets moved to the big house last week and went out in the yard Thursday afternoon.  It was quite an adventure!  They're still pretty small compared to the old girls but they're growing and everybody has settled down - you know there's a pecking order in the hen house. So everybody had to get used to new faces and personalities. 

Lily was fine even though she looks scared out of her wits and maybe would like to have a little snack.  I guess she was thinking - More, more ... how can we have more of these things!

I know it's late but what can I say - I've been busy.
So Over the River and Thru the Woods - we did go to Grandmother's for Thanksgiving.
