Thunderation!
Rain, wind, hail, thunder and lightning in the middle of the night. Quite a wake-up! No wonder Daisy the yellow lab wanted to stay in the house last night. She seems to have a sixth sense when it comes to weather Thunder in winter, according to old wives' t...

Almost Done
I'm about finished with the bedroom redo. I didn't do anything spectacular, but it does feel brighter and more open with the new paint. I think I will paint the (banged-up) closet doors white sometime this week, and that should finish this project. Larry's ...

The past two days the weather has been like early Spring. I have the doors open today, getting some of that freshness inside. It will all end soon in more cold, snow and ice so I hear, but right now I am savoring the change. Earlier this week we went to Mar...

After writing my last post I looked more closely at this photo. There's a lot about that time in my life here. Center left in the photo you can see a building. That was our tobacco barn. We were growing burley tobacco at the time, which has to be hung in a ...
