They did fly away when we started to empty the UHaul and Moose went to check the bunnies in the Quonset, which seems to have been too close for their comfort (despite a good distance and a row of black walnut trees and tall grass between them). Moose didn't even seem to notice the giant birds.
They did return a few hours later and Tony was able to take this photo of them crossing the driveway.
Today I took the metal detector out for a few minutes while I waited for Tony to be ready to go return the UHaul. I found the metal part of a shotgun shell, a handle, and a piece of a hinge. Might not look like much, but it's sure neat to find old stuff that people have lost or forgotten about.
I'm looking forward to all of it. I love my new home. It's absolutely perfect for me. The rest of the family is still adjusting to the new homestead life, but I think this will be a wonderful place for them as well.
