A Bridge in Summer....

This bridge is at the spring where we get our drinking water. It is a lovely place to go and the water is almost 99% pure. The picture is of Lucas and his friend.

Lisa's extended family for the week-end....

Lisa had two extra children at her house this week-end. She took them to the store and several people told her what a beautiful family she had. They DO look like siblings. The girl is Anna from Mexico and the baby is Lisa's first cousin once removed. His name is Damien. His Dad is from Mexico, but he isn't related to Anna. Anna was a former student in my daughter's class. She loves to come to the farm.

Is this a Chicken or a Turkey?

My daughter sent me this picture. She made it in her chicken house. Looks like a good roosting spot to me. I don't know if the chicken thinks he is a turkey or the turkey thinks he is a chicken.

A New Baby Donkey....

This is what happened at my daughter's farm last night. It was just born in this picture. If you look, you can still see the sac. The mama donkey is a good mother. I think this is her second baby since Lisa has owned her.

A Good Book....The Glass Castle...

This is a remarkable memoir of a dysfunctional family written by one of the daughters. The Walls children learned to take care of themselves. they fed, clothed, and protected one another, and eventually found their way to New York. Their parents followed them, choosing to remain homeless even as their children prospered. This is based on a true story. Once you start reading it, it is hard to put aside until you read the last word!

Cherry Pickin' Time in TN

Lisa came home Saturday and this is what we did......picked a gallon of cherries from my yard. We had such a good time. She said, "Mom, you know people pay money to do this." She took enough home with her to make a cherry cobbler and I will use the rest to do the same.
