Scenes in Winter
Today it is sparkling bright today: blue sky, white snow. It is not very cold and we are expecting more snow tomorrow. I thought I would post some winter pictures.
Picasa, my photo handling program, has some new features. One is allowing one to write on the photos. I gave that a try.

A typical scene along the road to town. I made a trip to Verner to get feed for the animals and do a little laundry.
My path to the shed is beginning to look well used. The piglets use it too travelling in single file.
There is a little drifting alongside Dave's raised garden and the wood pile. About mid thigh deep.
Even the piglets enjoy the snow and fresh air. He they are enjoying some cracked corn.
The other day I absentmindedly let Heidi outside loose. Right away she headed for the shed with me hobbling along behind to try to stop her. She won that foot race. By the time i caught up she has grabbed a piglet by the back of the neck. The victum was squealing bloody murder. The sow is threatening to vault out of her pen to join in the fray. I get a good grip on Heidi and give her some wacks across the nose until she released her victum. I drag her away.
In no time, Heidi is once again my adoring, gentle companion. She certainly has it in for pigs.
To let Heidi loose I have to take her down by the river.
