"That is a badass coop!!" says Cristal Wallace.

"Thank you! Hubby figures it's going to take the chickens about 40 years to pay it off, lol." Tanya Jukes replies.

Tanya Jukes told me, "Thank you! Turns out, they will rip hardware cloth open like a Ziploc bag. They must be hungry because we've never had a problem til now. But, they'll have to go elsewhere for their dinner."

Please join us to celebrate the life of our dear friend Doug Purrier.  For many years, Doug owned and operated Uncle Tom’s Cabin as a place of solitude for the weary traveler, the outbound Jeeper, the cold family warming up from a day in the snow.  Uncle Tom’s Cabin holds a special place in the hearts of so many of us and Doug was a true embodiment of that spirit.  Let’s celebrate the life of a dear man who we love and cherish!
