There were a few requests for more pictures of the chickens and I am more than happy to post a recent picture of our little darling, Menina. Menina, named by Tio Raul, means “little girl” in Portuguese. This is very fitting and is not to be confused with La Niña or “O Menina” by Beck. Here she is:
I just couldn’t help but post a picture from last night’s hockey game which was military appreciation night. The game was GREAT! The Cottonmouths won and enjoyed a full stadium of adoring fans. Everyone wondered why they didn’t have military appreciation all the time — surely they made enough money from concessions to continue it! The Cottonmouths no doubt loved the cheering and could actually hear it. Josh was part of the color guard and reported that the crowd was quite loud from the ice. He felt strongly that the Cottonmouths performed so well because of the support. Pity the refs, who are normally greeted with “boos” from the audience thanks to a series of rotton calls (don’t know where they’re getting these refs from but they have been horrible of late). When the refs skated out before the next period — the entire stadium booed them. Anyway, here is a picture of Josh (in ACUs) waiting to go out on the ice:
These photos were taken by Heather when my camera batteries died (the first is of the color guard that Josh was in and the other is a picture of the hockey players & military guys holding a huge American flag):
Thanks Heather! You’re the best!
Tia Julie - Menina looks so comfortable and right at home in your arms, Lacy. Thank you for loving our little girl.
We are so proud of Joshua representing our country in the color guard. I have always loved and appreciated various color guards at events. It always warms my heart and seems to unite a crowd.
I love the team and the military holding the flag together on the ice, how patriotic.
Razor Family Farms - It’s certainly not hard to love Menina!!! She’s a doll!
I know that you’d have been proud of him. Josh didn’t miss a step out there. It was really great to see all those hockey players (BOTH TEAMS!) out there holding that flag next to soldiers. It was a really special evening. Wish you could have been there, Tia Julie and Tio Raul. See you Friday!
