June 18th, 2014

For the past 15 years the Xolo people of the Pacific Northwest have gathered in the fall for
a PNW Xolo Party….Picnic…get-together…to share and to make great Xolo memories.

…message from Barbara Griffin:

The PNW Xolo Party date will be August 16,2014. Spread the word! It’s a potluck so bring something to share. From Janet, our hostess: “the party starts at 11 and lunch is served at one. Doyle will smoke some chicken and salmon and we will provide drinks.”

This party is so much fun! The yard is well fenced so our Xolos get to romp and play. The food is fabulous! Best of all we get to visit with old friends and meet new ones. Put this on your calendar.

As time gets closer I’ll send directions and ask for RSVPs so Janet and Doyle will know how many people to expect.

The RRDs, Don and I are looking forward to seeing everyone!

Wild Turkeys…

March 5th, 2014

…come home to roost in the cold weather. These wild turkeys are descendants of 50 pair of wild turkeys that we raised in the past and let go wild on the property. They now have multiplied and there are many flocks of them in the valley. It is such a joy to see them thriving. It is not common to see them this high in the trees so I assume that they had some help from a coyote or a cougar. An exciting sight!!!
