How great to meet up with fellow bloggers.

There's something quite endearing about goats. Wonderful to be able to flesh out what you learn about friends from their writing by seeing it in "the flesh."

Lucky you!

a sweet bunch of farm critters and a great looking place! nice you got to meet blogger friends!

Mary said...

How fun! And wonderful photos! :D

Nancy J said...

Yes, a great visit, maybe the first of meeting all my blog friends!! This might be the shortest travel distance however. I was so lucky, leaning over the fence to photo the geese, didn't realise the fancy tape was part of the electric fence, so different to the fine wire I knew when a child on our farm. I need to be more farm savvy.!!!Yes, so lucky it was not on. Cheers, Jean.

A blog meeting is so much fun! I have met several of my blog friends - who says virtual isn't real?

Nancy J said...

Virtual, online, or in the real face to face meeting, friends all over the world are so special.I so enjoyed our visit,and took some liberties with the PP. Greetings from Jean

Jim said...

Hi Jean. Even with all the clues in my face, I am lost as to the answer!! lol Never any good at this 'clue-gathering' game.
Good that you connected with a blogger friend ( I cheated and read the comments!!)We are doing a similar thing here in Halifax in a couple of weeks...meeting up with a fellow from Michigan who is taking a cruise ship up this way in June.

Nancy J said...

Jim, you would need to read Leanne's blog at Mandaburms to know the clues, all pics were taken at their lovely place. You will so enjoy meeting your friend, is he on your blog list? Maybe some clues from you afterwards?? Greetings from Jean
