I arrived in Ozland and we were concerned to hear that our nephew was suffering from a burst appendix. While his mama and daddy took him to a major metro hosp. the rest of us hung out at home...

"We built this "pole barn" on rock and roll" Just kidding about the rock and roll but "the boys" and Ga-pa did build it.

"Enough hay 'til spring...?"

"Sweet Momma Ruth waiting for Dr. Phil"

Ga-pa "reading" the paper

A very creative, loving nephew set this up and knocked it down!

A concerned Sissy looked on in horror!

The Candle Making portion of our Show!"Cold Soy wax"

Choosing the scent...Lavender it is!
"Not quite ready"

"Killing time"

"OK it's ready!"

Secure the wicks...
Carefully fill (jam) jars...

Leave to cool for 24 hours...
"What do you plan to do when TK has cooked her way through her new Pioneer Woman Cooks?"
"I hope she starts over again. Z and I don't hardly know what to do with all these great meals."

And after listening to part of the healthcare debate yesterday I thought I'd pose you a riddle...
"What do politicians and this machine have in common?"
hint: This is a manure spreader.

I'm heading back to Ozland to be closer to our nephew in the hospital. I'll post if I can.

Please keep him in your prayers!
