An update

Yes, we're ok. Don't worry. I've just fallen behind with the blog recently. Here's the update:

I went to Belize for a week! Some friends and I went to visit our friend Anna. Caves, a citrus farm, river swimming, Mayan ruins, snorkeling with sharks and stingrays, and lots and lots of laughter! 


Farmer John took care of the farm. Which included supervising rail installation on the bridge, major clearing and repair of fences after the summer derecho, moving cattle onto new pasture, moving chickens onto their winter spot, and cleaning out the barn in preparation for winter feeding. 

He also acquired two new cats. They are keeping Beast Lite company and I think they'll fit in just fine around here. We don't have names for them yet, any ideas?

  2. Following up on your "Year from Hell" theme, maybe some good devil references for cat names: Beelzebub, Lucifer, Dark One, Prince of Darkness, Old Nick. In the Middle Ages, cats were believed to be companions of the devil, or a form of the devil. In one reference I found, it described that people of the Middle Ages killed cats because of this fear of the devil. As the cat population decreased, the rat population increased, intensifying the spread of the bubonic plague.

    Or, following your visit to Belize, the Mayan word for cat is "Miss." Is "Brae Bank" Gaelic? The Gaelic word for cat is "Pishyakan."

  3. Hmm, I think you should stick with the theme. How about Hamms and Pabst? Or if you have a girlie, Bel for Belikin :) Anna
