    Mork & Mindy! 2 year old kittens we bottle fed from about 2 days old. Mork is black with a few white hairs on his chest and barely had hair as a baby, looked like an alien, thought he would not make it. Mindy is a beautiful calico with almost a brindle pattern of tan in black in some areas. They are our babies! Along with Ebony that is 6 years old, solid black.
    Our pups are:
    Penny- copper color
    India- charcoal with a white star on forehead
    Amelia- copper color, she was named for Amelia Airheart bc she jumped and flew running all around since she could walk!
    Petey Jack- he is white with black spots
    Horse: Raggedy Ann bc of her curly red hair!

  • Elizabeth says:

    Eris and Loki are our cats, Kali is the dog – all named after gods or goddesses. The chickens are named Winner, Winner, Chicken, and Dinner. It is up for debate as to which is the winner…the most friendly because we could catch them first or the most shy because they would be caught last. I think they will probably all end up being pets rather than diner, however.

  • If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
