I don't know if goats can be beautiful but this one certainly is cute! A visit to Cavonna's farm was again—very special! Everyone wanted to have a few minutes with the babies! Pat loved this one! It's a keeper. I found this group of babies in the shed. I'm beginning to understand this goat thing: [...]
Several people have written me asking about Cocoa and wanting to know how she is doing. She's truly an amazing dog and one that has been blessed by the prayers of so many.

The real thing . . . still! My mother's favorite plant—Queen Anne's lace—and our roadways are full of it right now! It is a true sign that we are in the middle of summer!
