Guess What I Got For My Birthday? And Other News...

The goats and alpacas are still pregnant.
However, Baby, our little terrier/chihuahua mix is not.
On my birthday (Oct. 28th) Baby gave birth to two tiny puppies, one boy, one girl!
Since it was my birthday, I got to name them. At first, I was going to go with "Happy" and "Bertie", but everyone here groaned at that idea, lol!
So, I went with "Bingo" and "Jingo". Bingo is the boy, Jingo the girl.
They are growing fast and fine. It appears the daddy was the cotton-pickin' Manchester Terrier from up the street (aka the Mini Pin) . The yard is tightly fenced, but that little bugger is so tiny, he was able to squeeze his way in through a wee little gap by the gate.
Bingo is solid black, Jingo is brown and black. At two weeks they now have their eyes open and try to walk, although it is more of a wiggle-crawl.
Baby is doing fine and being the best mama she can be!
Other news:
The Darlin' Man had his retirement ceremony, an award ceremony and then his unit gave him a BBQ.
His actual date of retirement will be the 21st of this month, but all he has left to do are all the classes and paperwork the military has you do when you are retiring.
He has enjoyed sleeping late and though he is still shaving every morning, he has refused to get a haircut.
He says he plans to look like one of the Duck Dynasty guys within a year, lol!
Other News:
We think we have found our house Up North.
It only has a little over 5 acres, but it is GOOD land...fertile, with water access. Also, a house and a barn.
The house needs fixing up...but that's okay with me! IT HAS A BIG BARN!!!
I call tomorrow to make an offer on it.
Cross your fingers (and toes), light a candle...do whatever you do as we hope and pray we get the house and land!


  1. Wonderful birthday present! Love the names. Praying for success in getting your land with the BIG barn.

  2. Fingers, toes crossed, candle & incense lit (really, I did), but I draw the line at naked pagan dances by a bonfire as it's only supposed to be 14 degrees tonight.

  3. Lamb,

    Happy Birthday Belated Sweetie!!!! Congratulations to your husband on his retirement. I officially retired 2 months ago, and love it.

    Your husband wants to look like one of the guys from Duck Dynasty within a year. Now that's funny!!!!

    I will send prayers up the family owning the property up north accepts your offer. Please keep us updated on your progress.

  5. I do hope it all works out for ya'all! I know it's been a long held dream of yours. :)

  6. Hey Lambikins!!!
    I'm hoping that your blog silence is because of good news! If not, then it wasn't REALLY the one you were meant to have, right?
    Good luck either way. And Happy Belated Birthday Girl!!
