"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

Well Hail

I would have never guessed that I would have seen hail today but I did, and a good amount of it!
I began my day working on a rock garden area as it 
was sunny and nice outside... 
the work wagon no longer has rocks in it but hail.

We moved the bench off the porch to stain and seal the porch.
Now we will have to stain and seal the bench once again!

Back yard craziness!

Another view of my rock garden in progress.  I could never 
grow anything in this area, so I began placing fossils that 
I have collected here.  Now it is just a water/hail area!

I also moved the trees to be in the sun.  I did not get out
in time to get them, until I took this photo and remembered
them~poor things.  I hope that they survive.

The sand and gravel piles...that we used for the cement
and are still using for the rock wall.

My trees, one more photo and then I rescued them~
I know, I know, I am just like those that take a photo 
instead of responding.

One of the dogs loved the hail...one of the dogs is under
the desk as I type.
~I think it has been one hail of a day~
with that I think I better make dinner.
