In Honor... Veteran's Day 2013

In Honor... Veteran's Day 2013

This year the Veteran’s Day Weekend coincided with the last teaching weekend at the Fur Peace Ranch for the year 2013… and what a weekend it was. Before I get to the goings on at the Ranch, Veteran’s Day is always and important day. I take the day to call the brothers and sister I know who either have served or are serving and thank them. In my heart I also thank everyone who has rendered or is rendering service to this amazing country of ours. Many thanks and blessings. Your sacrifice does not go unnoticed!

A week or so ago when I started collecting pictures for this it was still, for all practical purposes… fall.

It was a great weekend of music and fellowship at the FPR… you can’t make this magic up. Tuesday morning I woke up to this:

Yep... there's my gas well!

Yep... there's my gas well!

…and walking Maverick, Dog Of Destiny, this is the old Schoolhouse Road that runs through our property here at Hillside Farm. Think the late 1800’s.

As I was walking the dog, I could hear my Amish neighbors buggies heading up the road and I though about where I am in my life today, and you know… I’m right on schedule. I’m right where I need to be!

    Savannah is the perfect city: historic buildings and homes, surrounded by park squares. Everywhere. @John B

    We did plenty of walking Barbara. Covered lots of the squares. The founder of the Girl Scouts was from Savannah I think. @Barbara Jacobs

    I have mineral and timber rights on my farm… the oil rig with the gas tap you see in the picture has been there almost a hundred years… our farm house runs on natural gas…

    Good times

    @Jorma
    Did you ever get much out of your rig? I’m thinking of going solar in my Catskill house, just in case I lost the grid. Now I have a woodstove and electric. Did you ever think solar for you’re place.

    Oh I see above you have natural gas – that’s good. Just make sure you have a good generator..just in case.
