"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 Five

It's Friday once again and time for Friday five!  These are from the oldie files and one new one.
Although I used to hang laundry outside in the winter I haven't
for the last two years.  Now I hang laundry inside in the woodstove room!

I am not sure I have ever taken a photo of my inside lines~as yes, I have
three lines inside.  The bonus with indoor lines during the winter is 
added moisture!  

It's parsley...plain old parsley that I dried from the garden.

Simple Hanukkah decor for the window with pipe cleaners and ribbon.

I received this in an email.  Oh boy do I remember those days.

My thanks to the local volunteer firefighters in the community that respond 
anytime of the day or night.

My mom had told me that she used to wash clothes on an old washboard hung my diapers out in freezing weather, that they would freeze solid before she could finish putting the clothes pins on them, and her fingers froze to the bone. No she wasn't exaggerating, and I guess I'm revealing my age!

Love the Hannukah hangers!
