Thanks & Welcome

What a nice, sweet name - Leigh.  Leigh is my new friend and follower. She has a great blog with a homesteading theme titled 5 Acres & A Dream.

If you get over to her place quickly enough you'll be able to read about her new kitchen wood stove. Please, she'd like a visit. She's our kind of person.

Again, Leigh, thank you and welcome. You are now among friends.


Bits & Pieces

I've been dead in the water all morning. Just now have my internet connection back. This time around the company replaced my old modem. I can tell it will be one of those days.

The weather here is awful, bright and sunny, warm...I just hate this kind of weather. Our forecast held some good news - rain tomorrow. It's about time.

On the ride to school this morning, Little Bit had a deck of Uno cards. She said she'd had to 'sneak' them out of her dad's house. When she removed the cards from her pack I asked, "Why?"

She put a shy smile on her face and replied, "So we can play cards on our ride, Papa."

"Oh, well that's nice, Sweetheart, but Papa must drive and stay alert."

She laughed. Then, "It's okay, Papa. I'll play your hand for you."

A few minutes later, "Papa, you lose, I won."

So I repeated her last back, "I lost, really?"

"Yes, Papa."

"Did you cheat?"

"Papa, I'd never cheat, but I kinda knew you'd lose before I dealt the cards."

She is a sneaky little booger....


Thanks & Welcome
