"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

Introducing the Newest Family Members

Time for the annual photo of the cuties.   I love taking an old photo and kind of recreating the photo...today's theme was inspired by the photo below, with a few twists!

First, Third, Fourth and Second
 First, Third, Fourth and Second today!

And guess what?  It's time to share a bit more.  You see 
the family is growing and the four are now six...

First,  Third, Fourth, and Second...oops.  I mean First's sweetie,
Third's sweetie, Fourth and Second.

The first official photo of the expanding Goof Troop.
Oh and yes, I am smiling...with a few happy tears.

 The journey is beginning for our goofs.  As they were walking
I thought of how Bill and I led the way for them for all these years,
and now they are forging their own ways.
