Inn at Buck Hollow Farm Newsletter Online Edition No.20
July 2005


We can not offer enough thanks for the dozens of letters we received offering kind thoughts about our loss of Isham (we still have no idea where he might have gone). Clearly many hearts were touched and more than a few personal losses remembered. Your letters meant a great deal to us, a few thoughts are quoted in a neighboring column.

Gizmo is both introducing and offering a few personal thoughts about the newest member of our family. We know you will love him just as we already do.

Hi Everyone. Gizmo here.

I've been told that I have been elected to introduce the newest member of our family. I've also been told that this is an honor. If so,  why did I see a series of winks and some fingers crossed behind 
backs. Nonetheless, being a dutiful son, I'll do my best to comply.

Please meet (and I guess I mean this) an adorable English Springer 
Spaniel with the name of UTAH. He turns 11 weeks on June 26.

It's a tossup as to which is harder, losing Isham or gaining Utah.  
First I had to listen to endless bickering about a name (as well as 
a name change) for this ever wiggling beast. Now I must also deal 
with a 10 pound creature who apparently thinks I'm God - a god whose ears always need pulling, a god whose legs are meant for climbing,  a god who needs (like medieval  kings), an official taste tester  and a god who needs close (very close) company wherever and whenever he moves.  Well buddy, this god has teeth, so BACK OFF MY DISH !

As a concession to necessity,  Mom and Dad had my very long fur  
shaved for the summer.  It's both cooler and provides less of a  grip 
for those sharp baby teeth that monster carries in his mouth.

Anyhow,  as the old saying goes - this too shall pass.

My best to our Northern neighbors for Canada Day and a Happy July 4th to the rest of you.

Love  Gizmo

Over the past year many of you have already tasted and raved about Jacquie's home made pizza. We are about to introduce her latest creation.  Home made maple ice cream - a perfect desert after the pizza  (or at any other time). We need only to obtain those "Dixie cup" type of containers and we'll be ready to roll. Of course the only maple syrup we'll use is that which is made from our own sugar bush. Brad has taste tested many gallons and gives it a two thumbs up. We'll do our best to always keep an adequate supply.

Thank you for your kind words:

"Just a little word to say that I'm so sorry about your dog...You must have been really sad!? Because we could enjoy his company for a few days, it makes it that more sad...I love animals so much, I can understand how you must feel...sorry..."

"We're so sad to hear of Isham's flight! We so enjoyed his company the two times we have stayed with you. He was such a great snowy-trek-through-the-woods tour guide, rarely leaving our side and always patiently waiting for us to catch up."
"Isham and Gizmo both have a mention on our wedding website (we're marrying August 20th in Massachusetts) as being the best B and B companions! "
 "That makes me sad to hear about Isham. I looked forward to reading his part of the newsletter. I liked the prayer and will copy it and keep it."
