After a nice winter of hibernation (mostly writing, I have finished a book of short stories and another novel set in Colonial Virginia) it is time to come out of the cave.  Two litters of pigs in the same day.  The oxen are rusty even though they have done some logging and moved hay regularly.  I now have four weeks to prepare for Shiloh.  We will be part of the march from Corinth.  So, we train animals, condition them and hopefully in the process get me back in shape for a good long walk.
