How Much Wood Could A Woodchuck Chuck...

if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

Apparently, we have a Herculean woodchuck livin' down under our old brooder house. He has chucked some of the barnsidin' right off the house!

Judgin' by this next photo, he also has OCD tendencies.

Notice how the rocks are in a neat lil' pile.
(I wonder if he counted them too?)

He has managed to make four openins' around the perimeter.

Must be workin' on installin' central air.

If I Were A Bird...

By: Jackie Silberg

If I were a bird, I'd sing a song

And fly about the whole day long

And when the night comes, go to rest,

Up in my cozy little nest.

No need to wait for spring. Why not have a songbird all year round.

Enjoy nature.

Good Saturday Mornin'...

Ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds of the air, and they will tell you; or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish of the sea inform you. Which of these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this? In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind.
Job 12:7-10

Have a great weekend folks!

Happy Birthday...

Thomas Jefferson!

Here's a lil' history about our third president of these United States.

He was born in 1743 in Shadwell, Virginia.

He married Martha Wayles Skelton. They were married for ten years until her death. They had six children with only two living to adulthood. He never remarried.
It is believed he fathered Sally Hemings' children. Sally Hemings was a slave at Monticello.

He was known as the "Man of the People" and was a powerful advocate of liberty.

As the "silent member" of the Congress, Jefferson, at 33, drafted the Declaration of Independence. In years following he labored to make its words a reality in Virginia. Most notably, he wrote a bill establishing religious freedom, enacted in 1786.

In 1790 he accepted the post of secretary of state under his friend George Washington. His tenure was marked by his opposition to the pro-British policies of Alexander Hamilton. In 1796, as the presidential candidate of the Democratic Republicans, he became vice-president after losing to John Adams by three electoral votes.

Jefferson is attributed to several inventions, including the swivel chair, a pedometer, a machine to make fiber from hemp, a letter-copying machine, and the lazy susan.

Jefferson retired to Monticello to ponder such projects as his grand designs for the University of Virginia.

He died on July 4, 1826, the same day (and within hours) of John Adams (our second president). It was exactly fifty years after the Declaration of Independence was signed.

"Government big enough to supply everything you need is big enough to take everything you have."
~Thomas Jefferson
(How right you are Mr. President)

Afternoon Naptime...

This is the man who swore he would have a huge Irish Wolfhound.

Instead, he has what an Irish Wolfhound could crap out.

How he loves his baby Gracie. She has truly captured his heart.

Hard Work Never Hurt Anyone...

"Hard work spotlights the character of people: some turn up their sleeves, some turn up their noses, and some don't turn up at all." ~Sam Ewing

"Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work." ~Thomas Edison

"Some people dream of success... while others wake up and work hard at it." ~Author Unknown

"Labor disgraces no man; unfortunately, you occasionally find men who disgrace labor." ~Ulysses S. Grant

"Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there." ~Will Rogers

"The person who is waiting for something to turn up might start with their shirt sleeves." ~Garth Henrichs

"If you feel you are down on your luck, check the level of your effort." ~Robert Brault

Have a great weekend folks!

Please remember to:

Went For A Drive...

along these wonderful, rural, back country roads near the ol' Countryfolk homestead.
I came upon an old cemetery.

I love old cemeteries.
Not because of their creepiness, but because of their history. Some headstones dated back to the American Revolutionary War.

As I looked up at the flag pole in front of the cemetery, I saw this.

While most folks would be appalled at the disrespectful sight of this tattered American flag, I found it quite comfortin'.

You see, even after all the harsh elements that were tossed it's way, it has withstood and persevered.

I see determination. I see resolve.
Just like the true American spirit, past and present.

Hang on and never give up no matter how rough it may get.

Happy Monday folks.
