My husband is as fickle as I am! We had just about decided it was time to leave Texas. We’ve looked at houses online for hours on end . . really, days on end. Now, we’ve about talked ourselves into staying.
For years, I begged for guinea fowl. Vince said NO. He thought I was lucky to have talked him into getting chickens.
Today when we were talking and both saying we kinda aren’t ready to leave Texas, Vince said “Let’s get some guinea fowl!” We’ve had a few ticks this year, which we’ve never had before and they’re supposed to help rid the yard of ticks. They’re not real easy to find around here but Vince, with his excellent sleuthing skills, found some that will be available in a few weeks and has asked for six of them.
The guy he was talking to also has peacocks and I think he’s talked Vince into getting a couple of peacocks when he has them available. My dad had peacocks and guineas when I was a kid so I’m happy as can be about this. I’m kinda wondering what’s come over him. Maybe before he gets out of this mood, he’ll agree to let me get goats and a pig!
The orchard hasn’t been producing fruit – not a single piece of fruit this year due to the late freeze, so Vince said “Heck, we’ve got the nice fence, we might as well get more critters!” What’s a few more mouths to feed?
It’s about to get fun, folks! 🙂
