But Not Quite (taken spring 2007 and forgotten until now)
Welcome Country Living Magazine Readers!
So many wonderful things have happened as a result of starting Farmgirl Fare nearly four years ago, but being featured in a magazine I've loved for more than 20 years is definitely one of the best!
I was thrilled when pet expert, author, and awesome dog rescuer Julia Szabo e-mailed me last fall to say that I was going to be the subject of her March Country Living column, and I had a great time talking with her on the phone about life on the farm with all of my critters (don't you just love the word critters?).
I suppose that technically our conversations were interviews, but I don't think I've ever laughed so much during one. Julia is a dog-loving hoot who swore me to secrecy over just how many rescued canines she shares her New York City apartment with. (Hint: it's more than five.)
I'm a little late getting this welcome announcement up since the March issue has already been out for weeks, but I suppose I could say that I was simply waiting for the online version of "Loving Livestock"—which can be found here—to be published. And yes, it's complete with a photo of very camera shy me.
For those of you who have been kindly asking about everybody's favorite hen (or at least that's what she thinks she is) Whitey the Chicken, please know that at a rather amazing nine years old she is still doing just fine—but if you thought she was full of herself before, you should see her now that she and her baby chicks are national magazine superstars. Who knew such a tiny bird could have such an enormous ego. (She was actually pushing for the main photo in the story to be of her.)
It's been so much fun hearing from new readers who came to visit after seeing the article as well as those of you who saw the story and realized that you already knew me. Some of you even recognized the donkeys! A big thanks to Julia and to all of your for your continued support. We wouldn't be here without you.
