Em, Richard and Liam came out to get wood. Well, Liam came out to get grandma time, but the other two went in pursuit of firewood. Their truck battery petered out after a couple of hours so Earl and I drove out the rutted track to give them a jump. Took forever with my little Subie battery. We returned to home and warmth.
Liam is getting big. We can't decide on his hair color – it looks brown in front, reddish on the sides, and blond in back. He has the Sibley ears, like his grandma. They are a big responsibility.
The little guineas are still out in the chicken house, in a high-tech insulated room (the Styro Mahal, below). They've become very confidant, venturing into the chicken yard and beyond. Maybe too far beyond.
