A little over a year ago, John and I had the privilege of visiting an old plantation in central North Carolina. It has been in the family of a friend of my sister’s for generations. They care for their slice of history lovingly. My sister and I took a lot of pictures that weekend. We […]

LOOK WHAT WE ARE GETTING!  We are beginning to build the dream, a little biddy bit at a time.  See that chick with the black and white wings?  That’s our new Plymouth Barred Rock. (The others belong to my sister.) See that little bald eagle?  She’s coming to live with us too, along with two iridescent […]
