"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

Last post wasn't exactly correct.

I have been blue.

More so than I expected. 

Funny I used the word expected,  as blue and expecting are important words in the Double Nickel Farm family.

Yes.  Blue as Third and his wife are going to add a wee one to the family as well and it is a BOY!
I am smiling from ear to ear as I type this.  I confess that I also have a tear forming as well!

Arrival Date?

Whee!!! Oh my gosh, CONGRATULATIONS!!!!

How exciting for all of you, best wishes to everyone, grandma, grandpa, uncles and auntie and to the expecting couples.

I love how the boys will only be 4 months apart, they'll grow up not only as cousins, but as best friends.

I'm so happy for you!

Congratulations to you and to the expectant couple. Is the due date early October, if so I guess I know how someone celebrated the New Year.

All the best,
