Monday's View from the Moo

Good Moo-rning everyone!   
Its been a while since a proper View from the Moo, but mom has the day off so here we go...

Jack & I have been trying to solve a mystery...
what is living undder the deck?
It's dug a pretty good-size exit into mom's bushes 
where we're not allowed to dig ...totally not fair, don't woo agree?
And its got a couple exit holes that go out into the yard.
Jack is using his excellent snooter powers to catch its scent...
 We haven't caught it out in the open yet, but we will....one of these days!

Woo know the windmill in the park where w go sometimes?
The park peeps had a special day when woo could
 go INSIDE the windmill - how cool is that?

 (harumph... "No Dogs Allowed", so Mom went without us.
Check ouot the views from the upper windows!
Looking out towards the garden shed.
Looking out over the entrance
and picnic table

grain was fed into the  hopper
from upper floor.
Winch used to move the massive mill
stones -  it was balanced so that
2 men could easily move it!

The mill stones had to be re-chisled by hand, each had a distinctive
pattern to its overlapping gooves, kind of like quilt patterns!
Massive gears turned the
central shaft of the windmill
Some kind of sifting box, and
another view of the massive gears

Photos of it being transported to its present location.
This mill has been moved at least 3 times!
How it works.  Mom left this one so woo can biigify it & read it!

Wooah-oh... I hear thunder, gotta go!
Hope woo enjoyed your View of the WindMoo (ha-woo woo!)


Toodle-woo,
Miss Moo

We have invaders under our deck too - rabbits!!! We keep trying to evict them, but more and more keep coming. Mom insists we put an end to our "watching".

Cool trip to the windMoo. Thanks for sharing.

How cool that your mom got to go inside the windmill! We have millstones in our garden that dad bought at antique stores. They're really cool, huh!
We bet you have chippers living underneath your deck! Our yard is overrun with them!

Love ya lots,
Mitch and Molly

That was a very neat trip to the windmill! Woo two are such good snoopervisors, I am sure you'll figure out soon what is underneath the deck.

Hugs for Moo and Jack,
