"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

Friends and Thorns

don't have much in common but on the farm it makes sense.


We noticed that we had something unusual going on for the past week or so. I was very patient and waited until I had the perfect opportunity to snap several photos. Can you guess what you are seeing?
On the bottom of this post you can see the full photo!


On the farm we have a real problem with thorns. No shoe stops the thorns and believe me we have slowly worked through every kind we can think of...

So I am ordering some similar to the photo below.


Maybe a sole of wood will stop a thorn? I am not sure, but I am really ready to not puncture my feet every time I walk outside!








Oh and the first photo? It seems to be of a 'friendship' or bond that has been forming between bird and dog. No kidding. Red the rooster naps with his buddies the dogs all day long. He burrows up in the dogs necks or snuggles like this photo. If I hadn't seen it myself I am not sure I would believe it. So now you know...
