"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

To be fair

I love the County Fair!  Since we moved to the Double Nickel I have entered items into the county fair as a way of encouragement for me.  I was learning on the ground and it was nice to submit crafts or items I had baked or canned to the Fair.

Today I was relocating the ribbons I have earned over the years.  I am changing the art room back into a room with a need so time to bring the ribbons to a new room.
Thank goodness I have a fairly good footstool ladder thing.  I am exhausted though as putting up years 2008-2013 required a full extension of my arms. I guess I should have waited until Bill was home!

2014-2016 were much easier.  Of course the roof is sloped so it did make this part easier.  I will perhaps do a complete photo of the room when I am finished.

For my fun after climbing up and down the beast climber ladder thingie, I worked a bit on this painting:
It is in the early stages and will be part of a farm grouping I am working on. 
I know I am painting a lamb and most likely a henny penny. From there who knows?!
