"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

Overheard this morning

Fourth: "I am not impressed when someone tells me their dog can fetch."

Bill: "Why?"

Fourth: "Well, their dog can fetch, but my dog can climb trees."

Proof of our tree climber. He has decided this is a place he like to hang out! Part Great Pyrenees, part monkey...

What a smart dog. He probably climbs trees to avoid snakes! Ha!

Sue said...

lol That's some dog! I especially am grateful that you included such a clear photo of your beastie. I'm allergic to dogs, but that doesn't stop me fantisizing about having a pair of great pyrenese some day. They are georgous animals!

Gayle- he is such a nut, maybe we should!

VA Sis-he climbs. The part he is on is about 3 feet high, but he climbs and sits there. He also climbs the fences on the property. I have no idea why...but it is so funny to watch!

Rhonda-I suppose if he keeps getting bigger, yep he will get stuck, but not now.

RMM-Oh for me, what a great idea! LOL.

Sue, I will add some more photos of the pups. They are very wonderful and very sweet. They grow very fast though!!
