"We Woke Up To Death" -WARNING- Graphic Photo!

“We woke up to death,” tells Janet Denton about that recent Sunday morning that her and her husband Eddie woke up to. The couple probably started their morning routine as
 usual which would include taking a peek at their Shetland ponies pastured next to their Monroe County pond. In the early golden hour of the sunrise that photographers favor so much, happiness quickly turned into horror as they realized instead of seeing their ponies peacefully chomping on some grass with their tails swishing, they greeted by blood spray boring into their eyeballs like red hot pokers.
Edited due to very graphic nature

      Overnight there were three frisky ponies and one dog brutally killed in a  seemingly wanton manner. One other dog was injured from unknown causes. The ponies that were bought to provide pleasure for their grandchildren has been ripped from their future and were now sorrow ponies along with a death dog.
      The facts are that we have two grieving pet owners, a leftover mutilated dog, and three dead ponies that are similar to my little ponies. “We don’t know what caused the deaths,” said Janet.

Quire possibly any other information about the cause at this point would be gossip, hearsay, conjecture, or just plain guesswork.

     The very human side of this tragedy does leave some other real time chapter and verse. Two grieving pet owners had burials on their hands, and what to do now with the leftover bedding, the halters, the collar, and that extra dog dish?

Foraging at Home Depot

I decided to stop in at Home Depot see if I could get some kindling for our first campfire when the Beagles and I head into the great outdoors.
Home Depot is very dog friendly
This is Patty, one of the nicest people working there. She is holding our free kindling from the scrap bin.
If you'll remember, last year Home Depot supplied us with our Solar Viewing Station. The rabbit ears and satellite dish we added are optional.

Park City

After my stay in Rocky Hill I dropped in for a great lunch and some great hospitality with my old friends Karin, Gary and the rest of the crew.

Finally had a chance to revisit Rocky Hill and Park City. Spent some time with old friends and made a couple of new ones.

Most of Rocky Hill Burned to the ground in about 1934

I love coming to this place.

Laura Lucas Postmaster I would call her Postmistress, but I don't want to start any ugly rumors.

It has been some time since I picked up my mail.
