Food, dogs, gardening, books.
Ohhhh! I wanted one of those when I was eight SO much.
...you know, i was just reading about this in the denver post and wondering how it is i've never gone to the stock show parade!
Lisa, your yard is big enough, may, except for the stair issue ...Jen, this is the first year I've gone to the parade. It's quite cool! I love the Stock Show and will be blogging more about it later. I'll probably go all day Friday, and I always go to the sheepdog trials the last weekend.
It's true, we do have a big enough yard. We actually talk about whether or not it would be fun to get goats... although I'm also pretty sure there's some kind of zoning laws wherein it's illegal to keep livestock in the Bronx.
Goats! Oh yes! You could have chickens, I'll bet. Probably all illegal, but remember the story about the impromptu dog shelter that has chickens? As long as you don't have a rooster, too, and your neighbors don't care ...
