"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

Hospitality~Double Nickel Style

Henny Penny would like for you to pull up a chair and visit for a while. You aren't busy are you?


She promises not to hen peck anyone and would love to share exactly which came first~the chicken or the egg. She has a beau although he barely notices her because she is still young. But he will take note and for that she gets her feathers dusted often.

Sometimes she will walk with you and if she is busy on Little Red Hen tasks she will have one of her Eggbook friends keep you company. If your hands are full she and the girls will all race out to see if you have the slop bucket...and will tag along even if it is only the laundry basket.

Don't fret if she squawks, it is poultry for I am having a wonderful time, let's do this again. She also wants to remind the Double Nickel visitors that here on the farm it is totally acceptable to have chickens on the porch as well as an occasional sheep that thinks for a moment that farmer has some greens in his hand. Here on the farm things are, shall we say, a bit more relaxed than in the city but never you mind! Thanks for your visit~y'all come back now, ya' hear!
