The road not taken…

…can lead to extremely interesting discoveries when one finally travels on it.

 The Kat™, 2011


A perfectly ordinary farmhouse, now on the edge of a nearby village and probably no longer part of an operating farm.

Farm 1
But strange things lurk near the mailbox.

Farm 2
Even stranger critters lurk in a fenced-in area in the yard.

Farm 3
Farm 4
I know you want a closer look.

Farm 5
Farm 7

I have lived here 12 years and never knew this zoo existed. Let this be a lesson to you: when you want to avoid road construction, try an unfamiliar route home. You never know what you will find

    No over-grazing issues here.

    You know, coming in late and skimming the comments leads to “sunglasses? what sunglasses?” and “spider?”
    I want the dog. And I’ve thought about welding just to make this stuff. Although smaller.
