"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

Friday Five

Seed preservation
Zinnias, Great Lakes Lettuce, Cinnamon Basil, and Marigolds

About a month ago the elevator was out at the county courthouse for a few days.
I know this because we were supporting a young woman that had to testify and found this sign.
Now for most of us, this sign is perhaps an inconvenience but we can climb the stairs.
For others-that have been in accidents, are older, or with disabilities...this is actually a sign that translates to "Closed."

 Saw this full moon a few months ago and snapped a cellphone photo.
I am pleased that you can see the rays~it was magnificent to see!

I blame capitalism!
I mean everywhere in the States are businesses that make it easy to be their customer.
Those that don't~most likely don't succeed.
I appreciate a business that allows me to drop something off without entering the business. If I want to rent another movie, I can go inside, but otherwise~I can send rentals back to the city with Bill and he can drop them off while heading to work.

I can't remember if I shared this latest project. I know I sent this photo to my brother but not sure if I posted it here.  Interestingly enough (or boringly enough) I posted a before photo of this project on another post titled Friday Five.  Seems like I spend a good deal of time coming up with labels and not so much with titles!
This is the top half of one of the gourds we grew in the garden. When I cut the gourd to make the bowls for my 2012 fair projects(bowls), my frugalness kicked in and I could not toss the top part of the gourds...and realized they were waiting to be.   
Dolls:  a Mr. and Mrs. New Mexico.
I am currently working on the clothing for Senora Nickel as well as for Senor Nickel.  I can't believe how fun this has been to create the dolls with toss away materials.  For the body I used bailing wire, and the clothes were remnants of Bill's and my clothes.   I am sure I will update when I am finished and most likely it will be on a Friday Five!
