The Muscovy’s.

We don’t know where they came from.

 Maggie arrived first, in early December. She was mysteriously all of a sudden here, seemed to have flown in on the wind. Maggie only stayed a couple of days. Then simply vanished. And came back again. I always welcomed her back, and spoiled her a wee bit.  I often gathered peas from the freezer, also raisins and oats from my pantry. Might as well make Maggie’s farm-stays enjoyable I decided. However, she never stayed longer than a day or two.

Then on Christmas day at precisely 2:00pm, as if on que, we watched two birds fly over the farmhouse and land behind the barn. Maggie had arrived with a friend. Miss Mallory. How perfect I thought, remembering a favorite quote!

“Christmas is a togethery sort of holiday,” said Pooh. “That’s my favorite kind,” said Piglet.

That night Maggie and Mallory feasted on cheerios, oats, wheat, barley, carrots, mashed potatoes, bread stuffing, and Brussel sprouts.

A grand Christmas dinner.

Maggie and Mallory haven’t left the farm since.

Perhaps they have decided to call Shamrock Farm, home.

For now at least.

I couldn’t be happier.
