A woman who works with her hands is a LABORER; a woman who works with her hands and head, a CRAFTSMAN; but a woman who works with her hands, her head and her heart is an ARTIST. ~ St. Francis of Assisi

Life Advice From an Old Farmer - or not. :)

As these things get passed around I am never sure where they first originated but I like this one. So here it is * Keep skunks and bankers and lawyers at a distance.
* Life is simpler when you plow around the stump.
* A bumble bee is considerably faster than a John Deere tractor.
* Words that soak into your ears are whispered...not yelled.
* Meanness doesn't just happen overnight.
* Forgive your enemies. It messes up their heads.
* Do not corner something that you know is meaner than you.
* It doesn't take a very big person to carry a grudge.
* You cannot unsay a cruel word.
* Every path has a few puddles.
* When you wallow with pigs, expect to get dirty [and that's not always bad].
* The best sermons are lived, not preached.
* Most of the stuff people worry about ain't never gonna happen anyway.
* Don't judge folks by their relatives.
* Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer and that sometimes doing nothing is the best action.
* Live a good, honorable life. Then when you get older and think back, you'll enjoy it a second time.
* Don't interfere with something that ain't bothering you none.
* Timing has a lot to do with the outcome of a rain dance.
* If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop digging.
* Sometimes you get, and sometimes you get got.
* The biggest troublemaker you'll probably ever have to deal with watches you from the mirror every mornin'.
* Always drink upstream from the herd.
* Good judgment comes from experience, and a lotta that comes from bad judgment.
* Letting the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier than putting it back in.
* If you get to thinking you're a person of some influence, try ordering somebody else's dog around.
* Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly...and Leave the rest to God.

Conner Lucas and I went to Saluda Shoals and turned up the Christmas tunes and had a blast.  We stopped at the center and roasted marshmallows.  We got some popcorn and water and went on a hey ride.  On the hey ride I asked Lucas if he knew any Christmas songs.  He said he knew Jingle Bells so I said why dont we sing it and we began to sing and everybody joined in.  It was tons of fun!  The peacock is my favorite light display.
