PLOWSHARE THURSDAY – NOVEMBER 16, 2017

Today I am not endorsing any specific idea or product.  Today I have decided to do something a bit different.  My Grandson decided, all by himself, that he wanted to gather up some of our leaves.  Not to help me mind you, but to help himself.  He said they were getting in his way.  So … Continue reading PLOWSHARE THURSDAY – NOVEMBER 16, 2017

I have found the answer to the world’s oldest question. WHY DID… THE CHICKEN… CROSS… THE ROAD? To run over and steal all the wonderful worms from my gardens as I work! Hiding behind the garlic grasses will not save you from my wrath bird! I swear if you girls were not laying 6+ eggs … Continue reading WHY?
