What the hell have I been?

It's been forever since I did any sort of decent post, but we have been busy, and honestly, I just didn't have it in me.
But, look! I have real boots now, so it's all good
Anyway, I sat at the computer a couple of times and looked at the blank screen in front of me and said, screw this.
Sometimes you just don't want to.
But tonight, although it's getting late, I am committed to posting something.
Ok, so remember that snake with the ring that never got caught because it wasn't where it was supposed to be. Well, we finally caught it! 
 It was fun, and he was a super sweet character. We have to be on the look out because they found a large copperhead population in a town very close to us, and Timber rattlers are making a comeback in CT.  I would, however, be very excited to spot either and point them out to the kids. That would just be phenomenal.
A came home from work with a borrowed DVD set of Little house on the Prairie volume one. M has been viewing in full regalia.
There has been quite a bit of pioneering going on in their play.
E's banjo appeared and he is smitten. He walks around singing and plucking.
Always sans clothing. E hardly wears clothes unless we are leaving the property. He is just a free guy. He likes to feel the wind and sun, where the sun doesn't usually shine. 
 He is all about nakeyness.
This is E rockin out. I cut it in two videos:
Part two:

K's guitar came at last,
and there have been many impromptu jams going on.
and duals
and stuff.
We have had friends over for toad searches.
Naked Shark learning
Art is always a given.
Today, we finally brought home the Turkeys.
They are actually quite calm and sweet.
 I think I like them more than chickens. Which is good because I think I lost two of these chickens
and this rooster.
I thought I would be all nice and let them out to free range a bit. And get this! They friggin ran away.
Into the woods.
The rooster just cocka- doodle- doo'd while I tried to chase his butt in to the barn. The hens are who knows where? I left the barn door open so they can get their feathered butts home, but I don't know. I don't know if chickens can like walk around in the dark and stuff. When was the last time you saw a night walking chicken?-K
