Hello and Happy New Years to all.


   
Welcome to the Wednesday Coffee Hour here on Street Prophets. This is an open thread where we can talk about what’s going on in our worlds.

Everyone is welcome to discuss all topics of conversation and to post photos.

Pull up a seat and share!

How are you? I am getting over bronchitis. The sun is shining but it was only 23.7 °F when I got up at daylight this morning.

In the past week I have been here and there. Have camera, will travel. ;) I was very honored to have been invited to Oregon Gal's Goat Milk Dairy Farm in Alsea Oregon. I got the grand tour while visiting with her and mamafairie.

Join me over the squiggle for some photos.

Along the way there was trucks and cars parked along the highway near bridges so I stopped to see what was going on.

Fishermen were all along the Alsea River.  I would later learn that it was the first day of Fishing Season and the fishermen were fishing for Steelhead Trout.

Once I arrived at Oregon Gal's dairy, I was greeted by her working dogs. They herd and protect her goats.

This big guy was unsure of me and I him. I love big fluffy woozles. This big guy is all business when it comes to protecting his herd.
