  1. SunRay Kelly made me think of Ichabod Crane.

    Canning post–I have never had a mistake, just a different item appeared. Jelly has a mind of its own some days.

    I think all those campfire treats could be made in an oven, especially the orange-filled treat.

    My hens are particulary wary of my yellow-handled rake. but, they don’t always go to their pen! That was a very peaceful picture of the ducks being herded on water.
