Baby, it’s cold outside – right now our wind chill is 36 below. We don’t venture out many places although I did go see Gayle today after I stopped to wish Reed and Myra a Happy 10th Birthday. Here are the Birthday twins! The barn animals are surviving with a small furnace and heat bulbs. […]

No matter where you’re reading this, it’s probably cold and you folks in Erie, PA are buried in snow! Wow! I’ve never dreamed of 63″ of snow all at once. I can’t imagine how hard it is to clear it just to get your car out. Cold weather makes everything harder to do, doesn’t it? […]

Christmas Eve

December 24, 2017

I just back from the barn – the wind is blowing from the west and it’s 15 degrees going down to near zero tonite. I step into the barn and the radio is playing Silent Night. The heat lamps are the only lights on and it’s quiet except for Silent Night. How can it be […]

Merry Christmas from Connie

Connie’s house is dressed up for Christmas, too, and I know you’ll enjoy seeing it. Again…..lots of pictures, not many words. A holiday greeting at the back door. A kitchen display – a piece of original artwork purchased years ago and a forest of battery operated trees. The tree is so tall the star doesn’t […]

You didn’t really think that was all of it, did you? Haha! Here’s some more – lots of pictures, not many words. This white Cinderella pumpkin was Connie’s and she gave it to Reed and me for seed next year – it’s still too perfect to cut up. I forgot to show you the two […]

Christmas Decorating

December 7, 2017

This post will be lots of pictures and not many words. Start with the fireplace and the sparkly trees.

My Christmas Gift

December 5, 2017

No, it’s not a baby goat like so many of you have guessed. I sorta wish it were but I remember those days of bottle feeding and I’m just too old to go thru that again. Plus I could not give it back – it would be mine forever and if I die, who will […]
