Very long day at TFL...Spent the morning cleaning up and prepping bread and dinner for the solar oven. Grabbed a quick lunch at the GrubShack and met up with my new friends from Finland - Tuomas and Maija. They are in Texas doing a number of different stories for Helsingin Sanomat, the largest daily newspaper in Finland. Glad they had a chance to work me into their schedule. They spent about 7 hours here topped off with FL solar oven bread, broccoli with rice, and cornish game hen.
The real star of the day was Benita. Today she turned 23 years old. I gave her a new mineral block to lick as well as extra portions of all her favorite snacks. 6 human well wishers stopped by this morning and 7 bovine buddies this afternoon. Special thanks to all her fans that sent birthday cards to her! She got cards from all over the nation as well as Spain, Hong Kong, Australia, France, and South Africa 74,92,40,0,B
