Just had my Sunday morning laugh.

We pick up all the windfall apples from our trees and keep 'em in 5 gallon buckets and dole them out as snacks to the sheep. Usually, the buckets sit on the floor in the mudroom. I leave the back door to the mudroom open so when the dog wants to go out, all I gotta do is open the kitchen door.

Just now, a couple of the more adventurous ram lambs follered their noses and wandered into the mudroom, knocked over the bucket and pigged out. Wife said she kept hearing odd noises in the mud room, and when she finally bestirred herself to check it out, there they were, half-chewed apples all over the floor, havin' a high old time.

Grump is on probation, she shoulda let us know. She usually gets all ticked off when anything wanders into HER mudroom.

I'm probably on probation too, SWMBO didn't seem to find my amusement amusing...

Mornin' Fawteen, the stories I could tell of animals in the house.....years ago an Italian, and this is not derogatory, neighbor made a pet of a squirrel. She and her husband were always bemused at the anticks of the little fur ball. One day, an apple pie was left on the counter by the open back door......well when supper time came there was little of the apple filling left.....this wasn't too bad, a good laugh, and all was good, then...a pair of Louies wool long johns were hung on the line to dry, when it came time to bring in the laundry.....there were several LARGE holes in the woolies, enough to probably build a subsantial and warm nest for the "Little Bandit"! And that is when my education in Italian profanity peaked! I was told later what some of it meant....we don't have any translations in English!!!! Have a gooder, R.E.L.
