tigger's paw printsLike you, I too am a guest here. Bed and breakfast living is the life for me. After a night of chasing mice, I look forward to the moment when Farmer Tom presents breakfast in bed (I sleep above the goat milking station.)

Have you met Ms. Tush E. Bunz? In this letter we learn of her long-standing wish and how she came to experience it first hand. As she says, "awaking to morning revelry by at least seven good crowers, followed by soft mooing, and breathing the smell of freshly mowed hay."

The farm guests love Ms. Bunz. Although Biz wasn't so sure of the propriety of a scantily clad young lady: "Think of the impression on the children!" Farmer Tom sure chuckled about that one. Perhaps you will too. Take a look at this year's news.

The year 1999 as remembered by Abigail - a "plain white" duck

What a year! ... While I am a farm duck by choice, not all of my family lives on the farm. I often think of them when newsletter time of year comes around. What could they all be doing?
