"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

A Day in the Life: UPDATE-Warning Graphic

Who would have thought that I would be surprised by an event on the farm, but tonight, I was. We had javelinas in the yard!! Well now one less. We have been noting the animals acting a bit antsy and so Bill and the kids had been checking the pens often. This is what he found and took care of.
Javelinas are a menace to the farm and the animals.

Here is Third hauling the javelina to his truck.

A neighbor wanted to butcher it, so Third, Fourth and Bill drove it over to their place.

Before they took off one of the farm cats wanted to know what was going on. Nothing much to see except another day, another experience to carry us on this incredible life we live.

Breaking the land and making it into the vision we have in our minds is a steady paced life that requires 24-7 work, yet has been more fulfilling than I could have ever imagined, what is shocking to me though, is the amount of barriers we have had to cross. Coyotes, flooding, snakes, heat, bizarre winter of record proportions, and now javelinas. I am not sure what is coming next but I am certain that we here on the farm will be able to handle whatever!
