You should see how clear the sky is right now! I’m taking that as a sign from God. But just to be on the safe side– because a healthy dose of skepticism is always warranted when dealing with the philosophical– I think we’ll serve inside. (See now why I wanted to wear that cite little
Thanks for asking!
I, for one, am going to readjust what I’d planned to wear the next few days. At times like these, it’s important to consider footwear. Let’s imagine a blustery day in late April.

That’s Jesse, out on the boat. See them? We had company this weekend. (That’s Daughter C spreading straw in the background; Brian worked.) People worked. See? And were rewarded. See? This photo surprised me! I had forgotten that Mr. Bow Tie had taken my camera. See? This is A Leland’s bean-corn-melon-squash garden. Some beans are
So we went to a lecture at State this afternoon. And by “we” I mean all of the usual suspects. It was a great lecture! Mr. Big Food introduced Professor Prinz to a standing room only crowd. Here I must interject logistical detail. Referring to the seating chart (above) you will note that the front

I’m inclined to agree with Mr. Big Food on this one. This sucks. This is the real Mississippi and company is due to arrive later today. And then there’s the conference at Ole Miss. And the reception at the Farm. And we have no water.So there you go. You go vote for Thad on account of
For the venison burgers tonight as we welcome company to the Farm.
Wait! What? Where are you headed? This is a pretty amazing story! Missy was outside and I realized she was barking which is something she hardly ever does unless… “Oh! Marica! That’s just not true. I don’t need my Dear Friend Rocky to tell me when to bark! I bark at the birds all of the

I did serious research. I’m quite certain I’ve forgotten something– though Swiss chard is the only thing that comes to
Miss M read my most recent Books Bygone newspaper essay column this evening after supper.For some reason, Miss M found “brain growth” highly amusing.Here’s what got her laughing: … the questions must not be suppressed, because that means death to intelligence and to brain growth. … To which I said: No grownup in his or
