|Since it is the Christmas season it was time to bring out one of my most prized treasures. |
This reindeer ornament belonged to my Grandmother. She gave it to me when I was a kid in the 1960's. For quite a few years I would hang the reindeer on the very front of the tree. Then as I got older I didn't want to take a chance of it getting broke. So, now it is wrapped up in foam, tissue paper inside a crush proof container. I only look take it out once a year only to look at it, never to hang or display again. Have had it this long without it getting broke so am taking no chances with it.
It is hand blown mercury glass made in Germany. My best age guess would be between the 1920's to no later than the 1940's.
I am finding out that living further out in the country that the Internet has its good days and its bad ones. Yesterday it went down and didn't come back on until just a little bit ago.
Arnold has laminits. Not doubt about it! So, I cleaned out the inside of what was the original dog kennels here ( there is a room connected to the kennels themselves which is now the sick room), putting stall mats down and putting pine shavings down, I now have a medical/sick area for the horses and donkeys. Now I can sleep better at night knowing there is an area where I can put whoever is not feeling well.
And with some detective work I located a local feed and farm store. It is only about ten minutes away which beats 30 minutes or longer driving into town. That was a highlight in my day.
No new wildlife sightings. I keep trying to get a pic of Bobby the Bobcat, but not such luck yet.
Hopefully the Internet will still be working tomorrow.
Until next time....................
