Cambridge N Calvin Keenan Awwww that's a cheerful blessing ! It's lovely to hear your stories , we enjoy them very much 🌹 a rose for you and beautiful Linda :)
Stan Burfield Thank you, Cambridge!
Meredith Moeckel This is truly a good story! And how lucky you and Linda are to have such a beautiful view of nature right below you! :)
Linda Eva Williams How lucky there is a place right in the city for a mini-stable without people complaining. Peoples' feathers get ruffled if one mentions backyard chicken coops in Calgary.
Stan Burfield Yeah, it's very surprising. And right below us. Well, he's the last farmer-holdout in the city, and he's sold most of his land to developers. Just keeps enough for what he likes the most.
Linda Eva Williams Good! Now he can certainly afford to.
Yvonne Maggs What a lovely view you two have...
Stan Burfield Here's the full view. That's the farmer's forest right below us, and part of his field to the left of his barnyard.
Linda Eva Williams Have you met him? If so, pass on our compliments.
Stan Burfield I will. No I haven't had the opportunity.
Linda Eva Williams You might have met a new poet! What the heck - ask him to write one. At the very least he'll feel flattered. Especially if he's lonely, as so many of our elders are.
Stan Burfield Actually, he's always busy doing things, has about eight vehicles on his property, has several businesses going with them, a wife and a young employee who trains the horses. Every evening he has a big barbeque going behind the house, making supper for them.
Linda Eva Williams OK, loneliness not a factor lol.
Linda Eva Williams Still, why not extend yourself to him? When I feel emboldened, I never fail to enjoy people I'd never have thought to meet. Who knows? You might attend a BBQ.
Stan Burfield Maybe. I won't discount the possibility. I'm a lot less shy than I used to be.
Linda Eva Williams If you invite me over, I'll get you together in a trice - winky face (FB has removed the option for me to post something like a simple smile or heart (grouchy face).
Stan Burfield Okay, you're invited whether you invite me to meet him or not. But I know you, you'd hop on that horse and not come off.
