Weekend reading

Thirty-three years ago today, these two youngsters got married in Hamburg, Germany. We still look as goofy as we did then. I used this photo, taken yesterday, because it looks like we have no idea what we're doing with this new fangled technology. Most of the time, we don't.  :- )



Weekend reading

Just how dangerous is knitting? Jaime at NGO Family Farm tell us in this blog.

  2. Matt and I are learning up about chickens so I am grateful for the reading on chicken feeds. Thanks. We're really looking forward to keeping hens now that our city allows it, but we want to do our research first. Have a great weekend!

  27. Congratulations, and a happy anniversary to you both. Time to reflect on all your years together and the wonderful companionship you seem to have developed in that time. There are so many similarities between the two of us; as well as many other things, I was also married (first time around!) 33 years ago.

    And, oh-my-goodness, a link to my blog on yours! The pressure is on, lol, to blog a bit more often perhaps! Thank you, Rhonda... xxx
