"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

Friday Fun

We are busy prepping for our usual Black Friday activities: family time. We are going to the mountains to see if we can find the perfect Double Nickel Farm Tree. This year Fourth and I are going to make all the decorations and not use anything from our holiday ornaments. We have many creative ornaments so far and plan to recycle old items to memorable decorations. We will also have some traditional homespun decorations like popcorn strings and cinnamon apple slices-oh well when it is up and decorated I will post some photos.

For some Photo Fun

Fourth snapped this photo...can you think of the barnyard discussion after this? "Hey, the farmer is not as good as you think, I saw things, things that have changed me. I don't think Tom went on vacation, I think he is dead!!"

Farm wife black Friday Humor!!

Black Friday appropriately brings Black Surprise

We knew we had an early pregnant ewe, because we left her a while five months ago with a male while building a pen...and so we have a black lamb...can you say "Awww"
Martha and her new lamb!
