Blazing a new trail.

Sorry I haven’t kept up better.  You’ve been so good about reaching out and sending emails, and I  haven’t even opened my computer up.  Appears I’ve been doing a lot of rationalizing and justifying for quite some time now. However, you know what they say about doing the same thing expecting different results!  Nothing was […]

Last Pool Guest

Birthday Goats!

I recently had my 49th birthday.  Just about halfway there.  I’ve got a lot to do yet, in the next 50 years.  There were some goats that had birthdays, too.  It’s just too cold to be having baby goats born, though.  One got to come stay in the house as its mommy had troubles, and […]
