Well, surprisingly, the 5 eggs we had under the broody mamas never hatched. So now we wait until the 26th to see what the incubator produces. I promised several of N.'s friends that they could come over and watch the hatch, which is always a fascinating process.
Meanwhile, Chicken Sister is STILL laying eggs, producing like a 2 year old hen! Sheesh...
I have my Plymouth back again, yay! It still makes a ridiculous
'ftftftft' noise, which the mechanic tells me is the exhaust, so that
fix will be in the near future, once I get a little money saved. But it
now has a working gas gauge AND (thanks to a lucky, new-in-box online
find) clock, which are both total luxuries that I've never had with this
Now if I could find window weatherstrip for it, I could be dry during the rainy season, too! It's gettin' there...
