A murder of crows stood in the middle of Sibe Quentin when we arrived home, so they had to be chased away immediately. Our fearless Chief of Security organized patrols to inspect every inch of our yard to ensure that no intruders remained.

With security restored, Queen Natasha strutted about the yard making sure that all wildlife knew that we were home.

The view from the ranch, our neighbors, is awesome, especially as the leaves begin changes and the cold weather rolls in to our mountain.
