There always seems like there is a lot of thing to do and get done before the hard frost sets in. Years ago us kids had to help dad, dig and pick up potatoes, a job I really hated. Mother was busy getting in her flower slips and getting the garden things dug and carried in. Another job was picking up ground cherries and I thought that was the most hateful job of all. First you picked them little things off the ground, carried them into the back porch, laid them on newspapers on the floor to dry and then when they were dry you had to chuck them - but when mother made a ground-cherry pie or opened a jar of sauce in the cold winter time it didnt seem like a terrible job then after all.

It was an election year, and a wet-or-dry issue was on the ballot. A candidate drove up to a dairy farm and greeted the farmer, How are politics at your house? the politician asked. Were badly split, the farmer replied, Im a Republican, my wife is a Democrat, the babys wet and the cows are dry.

Lena: Husbands are just like woodfire. I you dont watch dem, day go out.

Brita: Yah, dats right, and dey yunerally make, ashes out of demselves.

Before you give someone a piece of your mind, make sure you can spare it.

Character is made by what you stand for; reputation by what you fall for.

Labels
Were labeled, Senior Citizens
And by rights,
Cause were over the hill,
I like to call us Prime Timers
Cause weve gone
And are going still.
Were really active Keenagers
Or better yet, Partners in Prime.
We should call ourselves
Groan ups,
With our aches and
Pains all the time
When young,
We called them Elders
But today its Groovey Grays,
And I like Golden Yuppies
Weve grappled with trails
All our days
We can laugh at all those labels
They have stood the time and test
But my favorite label is Grandma
Thats the label I like best.

Gods mysteries

Gods wisdom is revealed in his arrangements of sections and segments, as well as in the number of grains:
Each watermelon has an even number of stripes on the rind.
Each orange has an even number of segments.
Each ear of corn has an even number of rows.

Did you read Charlie Warners article in the paper last week and how true it is. Why do we parents let our children drink so much pop and eat so much deep-fried, greasy food and then wonder about their te .....

Was lazy the other day so I started reading the book Butter in the Well, and what those people went through just to stay alive was amazing. It is a diary from 1869 and those people came from Sweden ove .....
