The last few weeks of February have been rather dreary here in the Mountains of Western Maryland – cabin fever definitely set in! The last few days have gone a long way to cure that fever though!!! My wife and I got to go visit my granddaughter and her parents this weekend for her 1stContinue reading “It’s March!!!! Life is Good!!!”
I started this blog in hopes of recording some of my earlier memories to share with my friends and family as I remember them – you know – I should have written that down – well I am. Lying in bed this Sunday morning looking forward to a SUNRISE in CLEAR skies that we haven’tContinue reading “Kittens in the Church”
While I consider February to be a dull monotonous month here in the mountains of Western Maryland, it was a month my dad always looked forward to because it was Maple Sugar Time! Dad loved many times of the year, but when the Maple Sugar Trees started running – he was happy, and in hisContinue reading “February and Maple Trees”
I have kind of made a pact with myself that this blog is going to be about reminiscing and writing about things I know and love, but dang it, since Sunday night I have been consumed with the thought of why did I just waste 4+ hours of my time watching the so-called Super Bowl???Continue reading “Why Waste the Time???”
By the title of my page you should be able to tell that I was born and raised in a very rural area, and being so, we lived as much as possible off the land. That means you raise your own vegetables in the garden and as much as possible you raised your own meatContinue reading “Butchering Day”
I will start right off by saying I love to plant and keep a vegetable garden. It is a stress reliever and there is nothing better than walking through it on those summer mornings and pulling a few weeds and watching those plants mature, but I haven’t always felt that way! My mom and dadContinue reading “My History of Gardening”
Sitting here in front of the computer after quite a weekend waiting on my wood stove to catch up so I can blow snow, take care of the animals and basically get the week going. Hard to believe it is February 1st. It was a great weekend – my wife’s birthday, spending time with theContinue reading “Grandkids (Part 1 of Many I Am Sure)”
Writing this blog has really helped me to reminisce about times when I was much younger and the things we used to do when I was a kid. It is now 12 degrees outside and with a warm fire in the family room, it is a good time to write about that now. I wasContinue reading “Reminiscing about Grandparents”
Let me start by explaining the need for a snow fence. My wife and I built our house and raised our family in this house that is set back from the main highway about 1/10th of a mile from the road. Don’t regret that for a moment! The thing is that our driveway is acrossContinue reading “The Wonders of a Snow Fence”
Well, as a kid I used to love winter, but as an adult, if you are not into the snow sports, it can be a slow time with the snow adding lots of work to your schedule (at least that’s the way I feel at times.) I will have to admit though, upon retiring andContinue reading “Winter is Here in Western MD”
