"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

On the Floor~Inspiration~and a Project

On the Floor~
Here's the indoorish dog.  With temps so cold at
night and early in the morning, she sleeps inside. 
While inside, she enjoys playing with her toys~her way.  

This Talavera Pot is my inspiration.  

And a Project~
From the gourds grown on the farm.  Sometimes I think 
about a project for a while. Some projects are immediate 

other projects take time to season and reflect upon.
My Talavera Pot is the inspiration to this gourd.
 My goal is to complete this gourd in a week or so...
Here is a post from a previous gourd project:
 And below are two other gourd projects that I completed.
