Flowers

I love moss rose.  You can’t hardly kill them, they flower every day and they grow super-duper fast.  This year I ended up with some great colors. Pink flowers are nice.  Red flowers are sexy.  Purple flowers are purdy.  But yellow, orange and peach are my favorite.  Luckily I ended up with all three. Happy…

Wicked Walk 4/08/2015

To be perfectly honest I don’t recall the events leading up to my walk last Wednesday, April the 8th.  I just remember I walked late and my sister was with me.  Which was a little sad because I knew it would be the last time she joined me for a walk in quite some time,…

Show Time!

The Cherokee County Junior Livestock Show was a highlight of my youth from the time I was around 8 years old until I was 17.  I showed broilers, of course.
