Frankie gets a bigger area

Greg and I went out this evening and doubled the size of Frankie's pen this evening. Of course we were feasted on by every evening bug in Alabama; Greg said that he was low a quart of blood.

If it rains tonight again then all the dirt will settle around the stakes that we put in the ground. It will settle all the grass back too. Frankie will definitely have access to a bunch of new grasses, weeds and flowers.

We are still using wire fence that is hooked up to steel posts driven into the ground.  Have I mentioned that Alabama dirt is nothing like Oklahoma dirt?  Oklahoma dirt is all red sand.  Alabama is all clay and rock.  This is not easy to dig into.
