Go to work on an Egg…

or so the old slogan went.

Today I had 2 eggs and soldiers for breakfast. 1 hen egg and 1 pullet egg look at the difference in size..But both have firm deep yellow yokes, after all I picked them this am when I fed the chicks and animals.

New Years Day in Dallas Tx, rain — and cold. At least it’s not snow. Wait a minute, that’s what they say in Victoria! Happy New Year! Mel and Irene That was my e mail from Mel n Irene, the day in Banchory was plus plus 12 SUNNY no rain no snow ahhh life in Scotland. We that is the Menagerie, Sasha and I had great company for a few days. Paul n Alison Pereux. It was really great to have them and I am sure that Alison had a blast. She was right into feeding and  releasing the fowl and  the sheep and Llamas in the morning and again in the evening. We visited Aberdeen ( Their first intro to my Birthtown)  We also spent a day touring Crathes Castle just down the road.

The land for this castle was given to the Burnett family by Robert the Bruce King of Scotland 1340
The Burnett family received these lands in 1340 from the King of Scotland Robert the Bruce in 1320
