My friend GT and his wife Leigh live on a beautiful hill in the country. We recently visited them and had a great afternoon hanging out with their lovely granddaughters and taking in the sights, sounds and smells of their rural kingdom.
GT had recently taken a trip to the “critter” sale and come home with a couple of rare breeds of feathered fowl.
GT has a large pond with a goose and some ducks in residence. He recently got some ducklings and built a tricked out floating home for them. This is a the bottom of an old pontoon boat that he modified to keep the babies safe in the water and able to eat food away from predators.
Later we took a long bumpy ride through the woods to see some property GT is improving.
He showed us an abandoned shed that housed a mamma buzzard and her baby.
Before we left he offered us some farm fresh eggs and of course we accepted!
My friend GT is a renaissance man but he doesn’t know it. The guy can build and create almost anything. He wears the façade of a just a good hard-working country boy, but within his heart beats the soul of an Artiste! I should know. He built my house and it is a work of art. Thanks pal, and I’m out of eggs! 🙂
