Keeping on, if you can't beat 'em... and welcome to the world
- I always enjoy the group emails Doug sends out about what is available. The one that came yesterday ended with this: "The competition is mean out there. First the rabbits eating 280 out of 500 sweet potatoes plants, and now the field rats (I think) are digging out the sweet potatoes and eating half of it, and move on to the next one. I just have to grow enough for everyone." So instead of being impatient, he just compensates by providing enough for the four-legged creatures, too. What a nice man.
- There's a new baby in our family. Born to niece Abby - Sawyer, weighing in at 8 pounds, 5 ounces. That's a big name to live up to, but so far he is quite laid back and just wants to sleep. A man after my own heart.
