Posted by mrssmythe on January 15, 2018 in Chickens, Crafting, Critters, Seasons, Week in Review |

Cold temperatures keeping you indoors? Looking for something fun to do at home? Do what we did this evening and test drive Microsoft’s new “Fetch” App. It’s free, it’s fun, and it’s pretty darn entertaining. So, here’s how it works. You take a photo of your dog with your iPhone.
