Thursday Dose of Cute: Reading Lesson

See Spot.

See Spot Run.

Current Lamb Count: 19. Ewe lambs: 15. Ram lambs: 4. Total number of ewes who have given birth so far: 14. Sets of twins: 5. Number of first time mothers (who all did a fabulous job): 4. Number of previously 'proven' ewes who were bred but, much to our surprise, didn't seem to get pregnant this time around: 2 (though there's still a slim chance they might be). Number of pregnant ewes left: Except for the two just mentioned, we're done! (We cut way back this year, but don't worry, the lambing photos and reports aren't over yet.)

© Copyright 2009, the mostly literate foodie farm blog (not all of us read around here) where after cracking up over these captions for the last couple of days (I'm very easily amused), I'm now wondering how many people will actually get this dated reference. Did you have fun with Dick and Jane?


  1. Oh yes, I remember Dick & Jane. As soon as I read "See Spot" I knew what came next! I love your humor, your blog and your great photos.

  2. Love Crazy Daisy, love the lambs, love the blog, (even love Dick & Jane), but especially love that you share so much of your farm life with the rest of us.

    Thank you so much!!!

  3. I just saw a compilation of Dick and Jane books at the library. Apparently, they're trying to revive them for the newest generation.

  4. It's like the pop-up book Where's Spot?

  5. Is it me, or is that a heart shaped spot?

  6. You BET I remember "Dick and Jane" (and Spot)! I was taught reading with them many moons ago...

  7. For those who don't know or remember 'Dick, Jane and Spot', well darn, I'm just sorry for you!!

    I cracked up the moment I read 'see Spot'.............just too funny!!

  8. My kids (9 and 5) learned to read with Dick and Jane. I don't think they ever went away. They are so fun and simple (and hilariously dated).

  9. Oh, look.
    Look and see.
    Oh, see.


December 2015 update: Hi! For some reason I can't figure out, Blogger hasn't been letting me leave comments on my own blog (!) for the last several months, so I've been unable to respond to your comments and questions. My apologies for any inconvenience! You're always welcome to email me: farmgirlfare AT gmail DOT com.

Hi! Thanks for visiting Farmgirl Fare and taking the time to write. While I'm not always able to reply to every comment, I receive and enjoy reading them all.

Your feedback is greatly appreciated, and I especially love hearing about your experiences with my recipes. Comments on older posts are always welcome!

Please note that I moderate comments, so if I'm away from the computer it may be a while before yours appears.

I try my best to answer all questions, though sometimes it takes me a few days. And sometimes, I'm sorry to say, they fall through the cracks, and for that I sincerely apologize.

I look forward to hearing from you and hope you enjoy your e-visits to our farm!
