"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."

Fossils, Falls, and Farrahs

With that title I will jump right in. 

Fossils: We went to get wood yesterday~Bill, First, First's bride, Fourth and me.  Guess what?  First's bride went fossil hunting with me!Yay!  I love that she likes fossils and am excited to have another rockhound in the family.  Fourth found me a beautiful nautilus fossil~yay yay!

Falls: Well in all truth there was only one fall.  It was me.  I was walking by the truck and a stick caught the cuff of my pants and bam I was on the ground.  When Bill and Fourth came to me to help me up, I only could note that the clouds were moving sooooo fast.  I have a good bruise and well have not been too mobile today.

Farrahs:  With this I need a photo to explain.  We have four chickens that I call Farrahs as they have feathers around their necks that remind me of Farrah Faucett(Of course, I have brothers and one of them had the iconic poster of her in the boys bedroom).  Here is the best photo I have of one of the Farrahs:
See the chicken on the left, with the yellow/blond feathers?  Yep, that is one of the Farrahs.  Well yesterday one of them flew the coop and I was able to get it back in.  Today I went out and one was missing again.  Now I am pretty attached to all the critters on the farm and I called Bill quite sad, as I had walked about and could not find Farrah. Bill came home from work and he helped me and with the help of snake dog we flushed out Farrah from the underbrush. The chicken coop is complete once again.  Once winter is over and the hens begin laying in the nesting boxes the chickidoodles will all be free ranging but for now, I cannot do this as I need to establish where they will lay eggs.  Oh and for the record the Farrahs are Golden Duckwing Phoenix Bantams.  

To end this post I think I will continue with my title and alliteration:
