This is a very special Christmas at our home this year. Glen has been suffering with a very painful hip for several years. It has often made it impossible for him to work in the garden, care for the animals, or tend to the property. But now he's taken care of it. On Monday, he had hip replacement surgery. And as you can see from the photo, today (Saturday) he is already outside checking on the animals (actually, he was feeding the donkey holiday mints!). Having this surgery behind him, and knowing that every day he is going to feel better, is the best Christmas present of all.
To all our family, friends, customers, and blog readers, we wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We look forward to seeing you in 2012.
