Heard at Contentment Acres

Posted by Picasa
Amanda was cutting the younger boys' hair on the deck yesterday when she noticed 14 turkey vultures in the tree near our house and another 15 or so flying over our open field.
She stuck her head indoors and said "Mom, it's kind of creepy out here with all of those vultures staring at me!!"
I offhandedly replied "They only eat carrion, so unless you stop moving and start to stink real bad, you are safe."
Caleb, 7, piped up and in all seriousness said "OH COOL! Can I stop taking baths and lay on the ground?! I can catch one when they come down to eat me!"
