Biggest Stick Found – Game Over

Remember the battle between Typhoon and Landon as to who found the biggest stick? Chief of Security Kiska has ended the discussion in a dramatic way.

Hmmmm - Look what fell from the sky.

Hmmmm – Look what fell from the sky.

As a quick refresher, Typhoon found a really big stick and claimed it as his own. Not be outdone, Boom Boom found an even bigger stick. Miss Kiska usually stays out of these juvenile games, but sometimes the best ideas just fall in front of you.

Yep, this should do.

Our winter might be very mild in the snowfall category, but our mountain winds have been as brutal as even. Winds this week dropped this “stick” our of a tree in our field and Kiska has laid claim to it.

Are we done with these silly games, boys?

Halloween Costumes

October 31, 2014 |

We live on the top of a mountain at the end of a dirt road. We do not have trick-or-treaters show up at our house. Ever. Still, we do sometimes wonder what Halloween Costumes are appropriate for us.
