heard something  the other night in the chicken coop, wait a min.  I'm getting ahead of myself here.

  The other morning, I thow some popcorn to the chicken , (cause they really like it)!  but  went back just a few seconds later   to check on something ,  and the popcorn was gone. 
Didn't  give it much thought , they mustof  been hunger.  any hoo,  the day went by.  We had to go somewhere  and didn't get back until  dark .   When  I got in the house , I  remembered I hadn't shut the chickens up.  
So  as I was going to the coop, that's when I  heard  something  coming from there, and  when I got there,
this is what i saw .
The chickens  were eatting the popcorn and watching a movie!

if something looks  pretty on the outside doesn't all ways means that it is good on the inside, and somtimes if something doesn't look that pretty on the outside, doesn't  mean the inside is! take  incase these persimmons.
which one looks the best to eat?

a couple of weekends ago we wnet to a CELTIC FESTIVAL, close to where we live,

and we came apond, a husband and wife team making Lye soap, and we stood watching them make a batch.

It got me to remember , back to when I was a kid, and my grandmaw telling me, when she would make lye soap.

Well we bought some of it. DH uses it to get the stain from work oof his hands ,, that todays

soap wouldn't touch.

some pictures of before I was born,and some when I was growning up.

and a lot has change, from then too now, I was brought up on old storys , of hunting and how things were back then, I must be getting old , cause I'm wishing I would have payed more mind to them!

Here is a shot of my dad when he was young, with his hound dogs, and it reminded me of the movie , " Where the Red Fern Grows" that was a very good movie.

just like him

Dad loved to be out doors, he was at peace there.

he never talked that much and didn't share his feelings !

I would catch him sitting on a bucket watching his mules ,

I often wonder what he was thinking at times. but never did ask him.

I think I took after him

I had forgot about it, this is a shot of dad and my first dog "Burrs"
