The Farm Journal


Our neighbor,Ronald, called to let us know he has spotted a PANTHER on our property!!
This is a big deal, because the federales claim there aren't any big cats in these parts. It is also a big deal, because I wrote a poem last week about a panther crashing through the kitchen windowpane to rip out and devour my scratchy LP heart.
Does this mean I am going to meet a panther tonight? Is this foreshadowing? I am not frightened. He is prolly an old feline. I've been wondering where he's been since 1978.


I am really not that surprised by this news. I went to elementary school down the road at Walnut Elementary. The school mascot was a black panther.
