You’ll never believe who stopped by

Early last week, we had unexpected visitors arrive. A tiny tot announced that her name was Peeps Hickory, and she brought along with her a little brown and black sheep, who she introduced as Little Bo. She was a PIF from Sherry who, along with Hitty Joy and Cousin Ida, have made it their business to rescue Hickory Tot Orphans of the Woods. We think Sherry must have known all about our house since she clearly chose the proper setting for these two. It’s not every household that would welcome a sheep.

Aren't Peeps Hickory and Little Bo just the cutest things?

Of course Peeps was welcomed to the family, and as you can see, even a lost sheep has now found her place here.
Yup, a flock of friendly sheep belonging to the Capital City Hittys was right there with me (and L'Orange, who just has to be everywhere) to greet Little Bo and Peeps.

Hitty Geneva Grace had been with us for several days at this point, but she had not yet met the flock, and she was quite excited to learn that we had a small sheep farm. Sheep can be a bit shy at first, but Geneva’s naturalist instincts soon had them crowding around her as if they had known her forever.
Now look who's suddenly shy!

Just as the excitement was dying down, another important guest showed up.
Violet has come to us courtesy of B.L. Amburgey, and is not merely visiting but is here to stay.

It’s been quite a while since we have had a new Hitty join our ranks, so this was a big occasion and she had to be introduced to one and all.
Hitty Violet meets the Capital City Hittys for the first time.

Just as this new excitement was waning, we heard a commotion in the neighborhood and a knock came at the door. Whoever could this be? He had heard all the way from Washington, D.C., that we had a special guest staying with us and made a trip down here just to greet her. Wasn’t that sweet? I think we have a mutual admiration society going.
What a thrill to welcome him back.

What a thrill to welcome him back.


Geneva Grace declares she will NEVER wash that hand.

And yes, Lilly … we see your socks.
