QUOTE OF THE WEEK
“We may sit in our library and yet be in all quarters of the earth.”
— John Lubbock
GUESS THAT PET
Can you guess the animal’s person?
Hey there! My name is Ferdinand. The Agrarian Librarian calls me a “stud” and tells me that I will not end up in the freezer. I have no idea what a freezer is all about.
My favorite things in life are getting scratches from my farmers, smelling flowers, and chilling out on pasture. I also really enjoy keeping the cows and heifers company but the boss only allows these visits on certain times of the year - rotten deal for a stud muffin like me.
Answers can be shared with colleagues and guessed among the office. Next week’s newsletter will have the owner’s name. Last week’s pet Chance lives with Sarah Viscuso.
Can you guess what time of year it is in the Willamette Valley from this picture?
