Maggie lives on a farm. Apart from two oxen and ten cows, she keeps a few sheep and pigs, a German shepherd, cats, a cock and five hens. Of course, there are also other animals, but she doesn't look after the butterflies, bees and other insects you find in nature. Tom and Mary, Maggies's children, love animals and help her mum whenever they visit her. However, as both of them live in a city about 200 km away, Maggie doesn't see them very often. However, she can be sure that they show up at Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas. That's why she looks forward to these holidays although she has to bake and cook a lot then.
