DSC_4225 [1600x1060]We often see wasps at the nectar feeders but this is the first time I’ve seen this many honeybees at one.  First time I’ve seen this many honeybees in a long time, actually.  I wonder if they are a new swarm looking for a nest site and stopping by the feeder on their way.DSC_4204 [1600x1060]I think they just call an assembly of turkeys a flock, but a swarm would work.  Or a congress.  That one may already be taken.IMG_2973 (1600x1200)Here’s the male of a brother and sister pair of terrier mix puppies.  IMG_2958 (1600x1200)And the sister.  Mrs J said the previous owner took ill and was put into a nursing home by his kids.  They turned the dogs loose.  They were picked up by a neighbor and kept until the shelter had an opening.  They are leash trained and housebroken, their meds are up to date, and they will be spayed and neutered.IMG_2983 (1600x1200)Here’s a kitteh, one of those that were part of the colony that came down with a respiratory illness.  A visit to the St Francis Facebook page will yield more info on the dogs and cats. IMG_2939 (1600x1200)And a quick update on the ongoing Katie integration project.  Here she is with Bea kitteh and Annie, the Brittany Princess.  She loves her some Mrs J but would prefer to not be in the same room with me, unless I have a treat in hand.  She is coming into the kitchen to eat with the other dogs but she is still quick to run away if anything isn’t quite right.  She is eager for her walks, still always on a leash.  I have no idea whether or when Mrs J will let her out without it.  She will make that call.DSC_6914 [1600x1060]Mmm… biscuits and sausage gravy.  These biscuits are another success for this recipe.  I fold the dough over on itself several times while kneading it, makes for a nice flaky, layered biscuit.20130918_164650 [1600x1060]Jack doesn’t get much exposure so here he is with an expression I will make no attempt to characterize.
