Thomas and I got to have a special treat this afternoon visiting an oasis of love. Thank you Melinda Bourke Blackwell for having us. Seriously. Beautiful nature, beautiful views, and the absolute sweetest, most loving humans and critters. How did you have a heart shaped cloud grace us as well? Love in the sky!
Baby goat! Squeal!! I immediately picked this lovely up (little black and white one) and she cuddled right into my neck. Ahhhh ….
Thomas and Joey, the llama, discussing things. Isn’t Yoda, the alpaca, the cutest dude?? Gus came up behind me with a little nudge. Don’t forget about me!! Gus. The donkey.
This is Joey, the llama. Joey likes to put his nose right up against ones face and smell ones breath. This brought forth fear within me. Yet, I let Mr. Joey get to know and smell my breath! Ha!!
Thomas not only loves visiting to see the animals and lovely humans; he loves the chaos!!! Six or so horses, six or so goats, one donkey, four dogs, an alpaca, a llama, one momma cat, and three baby kitties, and seven humans. All talking at the same time!!!
Barbara Richmond Chastain: I’m so happy you and Bill were there too! You two are a blessing. I’m incredibly grateful to know both of you! So much love!!
