Yes, it is cold outside

If you look closely at the Shetland ram's nose, you will see a fly paralyzed there. I imagine it was still alive but chilled enough that it could not move on. I noticed it on the way out to gather eggs so stopped on the way back to see if it had taken off. It was still there even with the high winds. Apparently it was enjoying the nice wool carpeting!


  1. Thanks for the smile you just put on my face! We are cold here..we will be in the 30's tonight...brrrr... from this Florida gal! Keep warm!

  2. You keep warm too! Even when I lived in Florida I always insisted on a house with a wood-burning fireplace. You can make do with the worst of weather. My mother in Ohio has over a foot of snow. She recently had a knee replacement but still cleaned off the side deck to feed a stray cat who was crying. Guess we are all nuts.....
