  2. We had a new calf born earlier this week at the farm next door. I watched it wobbling around the pasture yesterday, finding its legs. So very sweet…

    They are so-o precious! I’ll bet that mama just needs a moment (to rest) but she’s totally attentive.
    Did anyone see the recent PBS showing of Lawrence of Arabia (restored version)? Beautiful camels (and many horses) doing their thing.
