    Proud Parents Announce Their New Arrival

    Just returning from a weekend in Wisconsin for a wedding and to celebrate my parents’ new arrival. They are the proud caregivers of 51 baby chicks, specially delivered at 7:30 Friday morning to the local feed store. Happily chirping all the way home, these little fuzz balls are irresistibly cute.
