"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

Turkens...Turkey


Here are the Turkens(brown) with the turkey in May.(Turken) We have a male and a female, and I must confess that they are the weirdest looking creatures that I have seen.

We have decided to raise these to sell as they are so curious to look at that many feel drawn to them. The kids named them Otto and Gretchen. When they finish the separate yard for them they are going to call the Turken home the Grotto.



I tried to take pictures of both Otto and Gretchen yesterday, but Otto would not stay still. So here is Gretchen.






Here's Christmas...(Thanksgiving died as a result of the flooding in July). He is a midget white turkey, and perhaps can get as big as 15-20 pounds.
