"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

Uses for Snow Sled in the Desert


Here are the ducks, and they stayed in the house for a very small amount of time as they are so messy. They love the pond we created on this sunny New Mexico day.



Then the kids wondered if the chickens would like a water pond too, as we have 2 snow sleds. They were nervous at first but most of the hens stepped in and liked the water. I have yet to see Colonel Sanders go in, but I am sure he will.

Oh and the reason we have snow sleds in the desert?

To sled at the White Sands!

We have family in Las Cruces. We've visited White Sands twice now when we've gone to see them. It's a beautiful, fascinating area! Love the sled idea.:-)
