We have run out of teenagers on the block. We are going up to the family farm for the 4th. Up and back in a day to introduce Eldest's fiancee to as many people who make the trip. Tar and Abby have to stay home - they have not been to the farm yet and not sure how they will react with all that wide open space and if they would take off after a moose or elk or wolf. Also not sure if we will have little people - Tar would be tempted to wash all available surfaces. And pigs. And chickens. And cows. And horses. (One of our other dogs went to greet a mule there and got kicked in the head.) And barn cats.
