"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

The Friday Eight!

From the files of the Double Nickel and in no particular order or connection!
Fancy tp holders can be found on the Double Nickel!

The old M*A*S*H like sign. We took it down but soon I will be putting it 
up again!  Thanks to the draw down in the 90s we have a good many places to put
on the pole!

This is a shadow of Pepe.  He was a stinker of a Billy in many ways.

And yes, the shadow is of him on top the mini van.  We no longer
have the van or Pepe.

This is how the Goof Troop welcomes one to the family. Third's now
wife, is sitting second from the left. Oh and this photo? It was taken
the first time she came to the house and met all of us. I am pretty thankful 
she didn't run!  L-R Third, his wife, First, Fourth, and Second!

The brain of Jen in one photo.
I could not toss the gourd tops after I made bowls from
the bottoms. This was the result of a year of thinking of what to do with the 
tops. Meet Mr. and Mrs. Double Nickel. 

This is Blue. She is in a what was a nice blue suede purse.
Blue decided to hang out in the back of the truck one day.
I went to NMSU-A library and noticed her walking behind the truck and
said holy-smokes that is Blue! I called Bill and we caught her and gave her
a much better drive home inside the cab inside my purse.  All the contents of the purse
went to the floorboard and I put her in a Wal-mart bag inside the purse. 
She traveled 26 miles that day~and most likely told a tale to the rest of
the chickidoodles!

This is Red. 
Not the dog-that is Sampson.
Red and Sampson were besties. Seriously.
Red would follow Sampson everywhere and they 
would nap together.
