Happy New Year


New overnight snow for the mountains

Life Is Good!

Monday, December 22, 2014



 so nice this week even our crickets were singing out for Christmas after putting some lights on the tower.

Like a sabre in the wind

 Here's a short video  of our 'singing bird food' about 10 this evening singing Joy To The World. (short version in 'cricket')

The fallowing morning we got the nicest snow fall.
This big clumpy mountain snow will be easy to deal with, for Christmas! It's only 35 degrees out/45 inside, so I'll go get some oakwood and make an off grid fire and warm this castle up a little. It's tough living in a castle.


Merry Christmas everyone!.

Defense At SkyCastle Update/Our Humble Huntress

Due to the fact that I like the critters,,, it became obvious that I was not the correct person to head up rodent control around here. So I fired myself from the rodent control dept. and installed Zoe instead. Well I have to report that Zoe has done an outstanding job.


"Here mama".
   Zoe killed her first squirrel. 1st kill was a small mouse which she walked around with only the tail sticking out of her mouth and finally swallowed it whole. This 2nd kill is her first squirrel and largest catch with hardly a mark on it and did so quickly and silently, and brought it up to Wretha. She is now celebrated and is the head of SkyCastle Rodent Control. Every Castle should have good working mountain dogs.      AttaGirl   Zoe!

"From hence forth, December Tenth At SkyCastle Shall Be Zoe Day and will be celebrated."
