Bad news :o(


Bad news= we may loose a goat tonight.

Starting a couple of days ago our mother goat, Ebony started getting sick and weak. We think she has Johne's disease or somthing like it. We went to Boisavain in Canada to get some herbal treatments this afternoon for her. She is laying down with not enough strength to lift her head up. I hope we won't loose her! They say that there isn't any cure for this disease.

This afternoon I made a cutout of an eagle out of ash on our scrollsaw. Dad was busy on his computer so I couldn't put a picture on this post. I cleared a spot on our bookshelf and set up all the things I made on the scrollsaw. Today it was around 40 degrees so the snow was melting and it was all slushy outside.

Got to go,

Hi Peter

Sorry the goat died, Just got Your Moms e-mail.

Seems like there must be a test to see if the area where you keep them
is contaminated before you get another goat. Also a test that would tell you if the other goats have it.

Would love to see your scroll saw work. That can be an interesting
hobby, there is a never ending supply of ideas. Have you looked on line for scroll saw related sites and forums?

Thank Jonathan for his last 2 blogs. His gun control discussion was interesting. Tell him I sent it to a neighbor who follows Gun Control issues closly.

Glad the weather has started to warm up a little out there. Just to bad it couldn't have been last week though.

Talk later

Gp B

Hey Peter, I like what you listed as your name -- Peeter! Maybe we should start calling you that! Love you, Mom (You do such a good job of communicating when you write. Hopefully you will get inspired to do it more often!)
