Gorgeous spring arrangement--Dad bought this for Mom and we all gloried in the beauty of it and the fragrance of the hyacinths.
Ruth being cuddly (as usual!)
Mom has been having us work on speeding up our addition by giving us a page of sums to do before lunch sometimes and timing us. (and they have to be correct : )) The other day, Stephen decided to join the fun, and was hard at work long after the rest of us began our meal!
Of course the proper place to sit is as close the cake as possible.
Found this amusing photo in a bunch of old pictures--we will have to ask Dad if he knows who it is!
I Love this one! If you click on it, it should become bigger so you can admire the absolute bliss of this unknown lady's smile. Hope it makes you as happy as it did me!
Ferdinand the Steer, (in the corner of this picture) is finally going to find his way into our freezer--where he belongs. And just as we came to that momentous decision to have it done now, he starts bothering us by getting out of his fence repeatedly! The problem with his getting out is, #1 he likes collard greens, and #2 we have so many big glass windows that we have to run for cover when he gets out so that he doesn't see us in the house and decide to come in--people are equivalent to food for him. ( every time he sees people they feed him!)
This epoch is about to end forever (?) on Monday morning at 8:00, and we will have a large quantity of ground beef instead!
I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify him with thanksgiving.
This also shall please the LORD better than an ox or bullock that hath horns and hoofs.
Here are three fishers just back from a trout derby with Dad! It was so funny that they each got a trophy--and all of them were third place! This happened two weeks ago--if you wonder about all the things that have happened to us since October you will have to remain curious, as I have decided to "file bankruptcy" as regards blogging, having too great a debt of pictures un-posted to ever get up to date. : )
We have had so much fun with Ruth M! What a sweet little girl she is!
The very blessed family!
Ruth already shows symptoms of camera shyness... : )
But she is also very photogenic!
Stephen finds guests from far-away places very soporific--one of his favorite words by the way, after reading about "The Flopsy Bunnies"!
