"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

Farm Life

More photos of life on the farm. I am having 'sickandtireditis' of the news of the world and have been avoiding writing about anything, so photos are all I have!

Here is a pile of mesquite roots that we had to dig up to put up this part of the fence line. We also have the pallets as they are good to use for many projects.

Dinner time!

This photo kind of reminds me of autumn in Ohio, but I took it three days ago on the northeast edge of the farm. That is Delilah the Great Pyrenees pup.


Poor rooster trying to decide how to cross the vast puddle!


This is the morning after photo of the last photo in the previous post. We have had a few rain showers and it has been so beautiful and I wanted to capture the same view at differing times.

Have a lovely weekend!
