"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

Red, Brown,White and Before

Red: This is Second with his new rig! He has a Dodge Durango that he now has here on the farm to respond to calls. I have to remind myself that he is only 19~because to those in need whether from an accident, fire, or emergency call he is able to handle a scene and do what is necessary. As I look at Second I smile, because he is only 6 months younger than Bill was when we married!

Brown: Yes it is always a good idea to wash the eggs. I do not think we have any white egg layers left after the bobcat frenzy of a few months ago. Oh and the bobcat-well it is no more. Now we are back to the coyotes, which aren't as stealth and are quite fearful of the dogs.

White: Delilah checking out the abundance on the trailer as our neighbor is packing up his ranch and heading off to Texas...and he kindly offered some supplies to the Double Nickel. Samson and Delilah had to get up on the trailer and take in the smells of the other ranch-as they were a horse ranch and well we do not have horses.

Before: This is a before of one of the feeding troughs we ended up with. I plan on painting it and putting Double Nickel Farm on it with our brand. I will post an after soon. I actually am thinking maybe I will have a mini tour of the farm as well as the house-hope it sounds interesting...The Double Nickel Farm is in the heart of the desert and so to the eastern eye it may appear desolate, dry, and brown~but I promise it captures your everything when you see a sunrise over the mountain and a sunset over the White Sands.

Have a lovely week.
