The autumn season is upon us and, like every year, I stand and marvel at the beauty surrounding me.  Crisp air, leaves dancing about, the rustic smell of bonfires scattered about the valley and the thunk of the walnuts falling from the trees let us know October is in full swing.

Moo Cow and other farm animals

He knows she’s a moo cow and he’s not afraid of her.  He runs right up to her and moo’s with her. He doesn’t like the chickens much.  He tricked them by walking around the yard with an empty feed scoop. They kept begging.  He kept shouting “NO” and pointing his finger at them. He’s a small…
