 Thank goodness that it's getting cooler, I'm so ready for the Fall cooler temperature. This girl  just can't take the heat.

I'm at it again, I made another two batches of pickles. A batch of yummy Bread and Butter pickles and a batch of Mustard Pickles.  Here's a few pictures. Notice the huge jars. lol. And look what left of my Zucchini cakes.

Sorry  girls, I forgot to bring my camera to the barn twice today so I didn't take any photo of poor little Raspy. This morning he couldn't stand at all and flatly refused to suck. My son and I decided that it's best to either let him die peacefully or to have the vet put it to sleep. This afternoon he was up and drank a full bottle of electrolyte. God knows what tomorrow will bring. He's so skinny and tiny.  I talked to him and told him about people praying for him and dear Renee was sending him a big healing hug and I think he felt it.  Thanks Renee. I hope he's going to make it.
Today I had to take the time I would have worked on my rug to visit the mother of a friend at the funeral home  and tomorrow is the funeral. My poor rug is still waiting and waiting.   JB
