"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

It's Friday!

Whenever things get you down...don't forget to look up.
 This was a recent up view from the Double Nickel.

This is a housewife version of the school game Stacking Cups!

I picked this you*tube link because the boy was pretty amazing
even though he was learning how!

We went to one of our favorite restaurants El Taco Tote the other day.
I have written about a previous visit here.
This is what I call a before diving in photo. 

We had First, Fourth and two guests with Bill and I.

Now to be fair...the food is absolutely this good and it merits 
what the next photo reveals.











...sigh
the after photo.


I am not sure why I have this photo and wonder if I accidentally snapped 
a photo while closing the camera...

Recently I did take progress photos over the sink.

What is nice about this photo is in 25 years it rarely has looked so empty~
I wonder if the dishes miss hanging out at the sink?
On our trip to El Paso I had to go to my new favorite store.

El Paso Saddleblanket is simply amazing.  Be sure if you go to allow
for plenty of time as they have two very large buildings.


Don't forget the Sabbath~and take time to rest as everyone benefits from a bit of down time~

A day of rest was given to us by God, so rest in Him and regroup so you can work refreshed again.

Six days thou shalt labor and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, an all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it. Exodus 20:9-11

And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath Mark 2:27 
Please have a safe weekend.   As we remember those that paid the ultimate price we need to be careful.  This weekend claims far too many lives.  Instead I pray we all take the time to appreciate the preciousness of our lives and that we live in a nation where some still don the uniform fully knowing what could be expected of them.
