You know Richard, my computer guru, that I have mentioned? When I have trouble Richard comes to my rescue and today I met Richard, his mom Lisa and his grandma Peggy in Mantorville, MN to have lunch at The Hubbell House, a well known restaurant. In 1856 the building was constructed and used as a popular stopping point for travelers and today it is a popular restaurant.

The food was excellent but the company was even better! Too bad it’s a two hour drive from Garner – I’d love to experience dinner there some time.
While I was gone, Hazel and Keeper killed a woodchuck! I had put ears of corn out by the bird feeder and it evidently attracted them. When I got home I started mowing and Hazel was digging under the garden shed – again. Sure enough – she killed another woodchuck. I know she’s bred for this but I do really hate it. Those woodchucks, which we never see, are harmless and they’re not even carnivores so they aren’t interested in my chickens. but they’re wildlife and she’s only doing what comes naturally. Thankfully I didn’t have to handle the dead bodies this time.
So tonite I opened the blog to see that comments weren’t posting. WHAT???? So, who do I call? RICHARD!!! A “subscription” had run out, I didn’t think I needed it so I didn’t renew it (cost was about $300/year) and that caused the comments not to post and ultimately they took down the whole site – all the posts and all the comments! I thought I’d have a heart attack! But Richard fixed it for much less than $300. Quite a coincidence, don’t you agree? I just had lunch with him today and tonight I really needed his expertise. Thank you, Richard!
Always glad to hear from everyone – about your everyday life which is pretty close to mine.
Good Night from the blog about nothing.
