One Snake down...one to go!! A Copperhead mind you...yikes!! Notice the dissection and the frog!!
Swimming on an April day...crazy kids!!
As the kids were getting in the pond they saw a copperhead head. So my oldest and hubby went down with the shot gun. They each shot one. That was pretty exciting. One of the snakes had a lump so they decided they needed to dissect...out came a frog! The other snake, well let's just say SOME of the family had snake for dinner...yuck!
We had a pretty crazy day as you can see. The weather was exceptionally warm...81 degrees! We did get some garden planted. Thanks to our neighbor for coming down with the tractor yesterday and giving our garden it's start. We are doing raised beds this year. Something new to us. Hopefully this will be a successful idea for years to come. So right now it's a LOT of work, raking and shoveling the paths into 4 foot rows. We have a pretty big "garden" space which equals a LOT of rows. I hope to plant quite a variety of things in there this year.
Today we planted lettuce, spinach, kale, beets, radishes, and peas. I haven't had very good luck at growing some of these, so I hope they turn out.
So glad to get some things in before the big rain coming!
Please join me in signing this petition for the sake of this family.
In only 14 days, the petition to seek a formal response to the plight of the Romeike family will close. If we don’t gain 60 thousand more signatures by then, th...e petition will simply be erased from the White House website. Now is the time to act.
Thank you, everyone who has liked and shared our photos over the last few days. We so appreciate it. Spreading the word about the Romeike family is so important!
But sadly, many who have seen the posts, articles, and memes have simply clicked "like" and moved on to the rest of their day. Based on our social media analytics, if only a quarter of the people who saw our last few memes took the 15 minutes to sign up for an account and sign the petition, we would have reached our 100,000 signatures in a single afternoon.
Please consider how sacrificing just a few extra minutes of your time to actually sign the petition might dramatically impact the entire lives of the Romeike family. A few minutes of your time in trade for the rest of their lives.
Thank you for your help. Together we can defend the innocent.
