"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

Before and After Post!

The moment I snapped the photo of the fence post, I knew what project I was doing next on the farm.This plain old post seemingly missing fence wire was exactly what I had been needing even though I had no idea! I loved the television show MASH. I have not seen it in years, so I am not sure if I still do, but I did love the sign post in the center of the camp.

I did not check to see what the sign post looked like and created it from memory, as I have been painting signs for awhile. In fact, every time I find a board I wash it off, haul it inside and paint it. I finally had enough locations and needed a post or pole. I had thought maybe I would have one of my sons put the post in the garden...but my random farm photos gave me the location of the Double Nickel Farm Post!
I have some on the back side too. Oh and yes this is how it usually looks in the winter in southern New Mexico.
My daughter wanted me to give the post an old feel so I tried this. No matter how I change the photo, I confess I love it!

And the answer is yes, I am pretty free with making the farm my own. I am not sure how things are done anymore mainstream as I kind of live eclectically. I have a small error on my mileage on one sign and edited the local city distance so I could keep the farm location between me and the sign.
