  • Thank you homemakers,

    Dear Cynthiana New Millennium Homemakers,
    First off, I had no heads-up that you would be coming here tonight. However, I would like to, once again, let you know how very much the other residents depend on your gestures of kindness and generosity you are not going unnoticed or unappreciated. Thanks again for your yearly visit, for it does make my life the least more bearable and optimistic.
    Thank you.
    Sincerely
    Josh Marshall,
    Shady Lawn resident

  • It’s 3 a.m. and Finca the Great Pyrenees is barking in earnest outside our bedroom window.  
    When you have livestock guardian dogs you learn quickly when a bark really means something. In my sleepy stupor I am thinking it is deer but I got up to investigate to be certain it wasn’t anything more menacing to our ewes and lambs.  
    I neglected to grab my glasses off of the nightstand so ultimately the origin of the raucous noise remains a mystery.
