Remnants of the Week--Obama Gone-a

"Well, Obama Llama, you're gone. We saw them chase you around the corral like the villain that you are. They pushed you into that trailer, and I said to myself, 'That's one push I'd like to have a part in!' You're going to Utah! Sucka!!! And those little boys you drove off with--Sage Safari? Is that even a name for a kid????? Llama rescue, they say. Hmmph. I'd like to see you spit on THEM--chase THEM around--corner THEM in their living room--bite THEM in parts better left alone. All's I can say is you live by the sword; you die by the sword..."
Sounds like Aristotle had a lot to get off his chest. He's lived under llama tyranny for several weeks now. I, for one, will miss Obama and the girls. I found Obama always pleasantly curious. He had a spring in his step and a look of folly in his eye. Dalai was the typical wife of the 50's--not prone to complain about the antics of her mate, unable to go it on her own, so she put up with a lot. MaryJane was the baby born here at Heave-Ho-And-Out-You-Go Acres--grew up unshackled by memories of Peru, wild and free. She put up an hour fight getting into the horse trailer. Paco and the llama picker upper and his son ran and ran and ran and tried to lasso and ran and ran and ran. I admire that in a woman. Was it my imagination or did she purposely lead them through dung heap after dung heap?

I found this in the cellar when I was cleaning last week. Does it look like a bucket of maggots to you too??? As it turned out it was sauerkraut of the most supreme variety. Paco canned it right away for a rainy day!Mugsy made a new friend last week during the guest visits.
Using our electric car to do yardwork!

And last but not least. I couldn't find this picture on May 5th, but here it is now--a stunning 5 year old Shelly in Austin, TX celebrating Cinco de Mayo in all her Scandinavian/Scottish/Welsh glory for all she's worth!

Oh, the kids will be sad to hear the llamas are gone, but I guess that's a good thing. If Obama can't behave himself then out he goes. Can't wait to see you in a few days :)

That pile of sour kraut looked like a big potato pancake! Oh, good idea for dinner tonight.

Ok, so I'll mention it since no one else did. the first picture looks like you are pulling a llama head out of Jerry's head.

Whoa! All the llamas are gone? I have a busy Sunday and I miss everything!
