“If people let government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny.” Thomas Jefferson

No, not the network. A real live bushy tailed varmint seeking to steal and kill my livestock. War is officially declared! I know I have spoken of our funny little guinea, Martin. Martin was a really asset to the farm. He was a great bug hunter in the garden while being oh so gentle with the plants. Martin, was an awesome guard dog (guinea?) in training. Martin also helped to round up chickens in the evening and do the daily feed chores. My dogs never suffered a tick long as long as Martin was allowed to groom them while they napped. Martin, slept on the side porch and guarded the side door all night. Unfortunately, that is where the fox found him early one morning and the dogs were too late to save him. I know it was a fox because it was back at 5 am this morning. It was back on the porch, looking for another meal. This is one brave fox. But sometimes being so brave can actually be pretty stupid. It will be back and I will be waiting. We really miss Martin, the farm just isn't the same without him.
