Here on the acre we have been enjoying one last week of nice weather. We have had lovely days in the 60's and cool nights in the 40's. It has been hard to get any work done around the house and on the computer as we have been picking apples, attending festivals, playing football, and carving pumpkins. What a wonderful way to spend the fall, but it is ending. As of today the weather is turning and snow is starting for fall here in our lovely state. It was great while it lasted, and now we can all look forward to fires in the wood stove, ice skating, and hot chocolate.

I just love having 4 seasons.

A Quote For Our Times

A good leader inspires greatness in others

Ok, so I got it off an episode of Star Wars, but it is still a great quote.

I Have Cats !

First you have to say that right, sort of like one would say:

I have lice,
I have gas,
or even,
I have termites

Yes, here at Skunky Acre we have a plague of cats. It all started when we went out of town for a few days this summer. We had a lovely time, but the house sitters were feeding our cat outside ( with our permission) and it attracted a lovely calico cat. We kept feeding her because she was sweet and cute, and she apparently did not have a home. Well, that set off the cat radar for this whole area and now we are over run with cats, all of which want food. One has even decided she lives here and will just walk in my house and make herself at home. We started calling her Jadis ( as in the white witch that just took over Narnia) and her picture is above.

Now what to do with all these cats,

Anyone want one ?

If The Economy Is Going To Collapse Then Maybe I Should Go And Buy A Shovel

My oldest son informed me yesterday that if the economy was to collapse then we would be ok. You see he is sure that our garden, chickens, and orchard would protect us from the general pain that such a thing would bring the country. I guess that means I should replace the tools we broke the day before the infamous arm injury. We were digging out stumps and broke our pitch fork and shovel. Those just might come in handy if indeed he is right. In case you are wondering he is currently working on a plan for what to do if the " city " people try to come up the mountain and take our resources.

Maybe I should start limiting his TV news watching.
