Do you have a passion for making things entirely by hand or appreciate it in other people? In my teens and twenties, I got a thrill out of being my own mechanic on my old '75 Mustang. Yep, I've changed a few water pumps and brake pads. I have sewn every stitch of handmade rag dolls with a needle and thread (no machine stitching), and I prefer to cook from scratch. Isn't it much more rewarding to gather family and friends to put in fence posts, and raise barns? So naturally for me, prepping the fleece, learning to spin, and then making things from the alpacas' luscious fiber is my idea of happiness! -Kaylen

What is it?

 Handsome Hubby found this little guy in the catch pen when we 
were giving the alpacas their monthly shots. 

I think it is a salamander.  I've never seen one before.  Have you?

Thanks to Little Man for taking the pictures.

Looks like a salamander to me! I love salamanders... I used to be really close with this girl whose house is surrounded by woods. We'd get together all the time, and beneath logs and things in the woods we could always find little orange-ish salamanders. Then there were the yellow spotted salamanders we've seen a few times under the rocks in our garden... and of course, when my family hiked Mt. Monadnock in New Hampshire, we saw red-spotted salamanders all over the place.

But I'll stop now before I write a novel on salamanders... LOL ;)

I love your stories! Keep your camera handy this summer! It sounds like you could write a field guide :)
