This gardening GIG is a lot, I never thought much about it, I thought oh YES lets start a garden this year, there should be nothing to it, WROOOOONGGG in so many ways.  First off I started with way to big of an area ,my thinking behind this was " I should make my garden the size I ultimately want it to end up being  so I never have to move my fencing"(exact quote) . . . . . . . .   BAD IDEA #1.

Then I decide to ROTOTILL into VIRGIN ground, by my self, with a rented machine, I tilled for 3 days and only got a ½ inch into the ground. . . . . . . . 

GOOD NEWS:  Our neighbor knows a guy we will call him MR. GEORGE, who has a tractor with an attachment that can till the ground WOOO HOOOOO !!!!!!

Now me being the procrastinator that I tend to be sometimes(always something more pressing to do YOU KNOW: Laundry,dishes,Blogging,watching T.V.) Waite's to HOE the ground and plant. . . . . . . 

We had 2 weeks basically of straight rain, so here I am 4 days before memorial day (My deadline to have the seeds in the ground) trying to HOE this CLAY filled ground, it is sticking back together with itself and makes for some HARD WORK ☼ LUCKY I am not affraid of  hard work so. . . . . . . . . HI HO HI HO IT'S OFF TO WORK I GO !!!!!!!!!!!

What is on my MIND

86% of Americans believe there is a GOD our nation was built on the foundation of his commandments when our nation started they would have prayers in school and most everybody lived in the path GOD wanted us to follow (hardworking, and happy) but now we don’t say the pledge of allegiance in school anymore, post offices are being forced to take down posters that say “IN GOD WE TRUST” . Court houses are banning the 10 commandments from being displayed (probably because all the people residing there don’t follow them Example: Judges and lawyers ). What does all this mean to me:

Society as a whole is immoral we are not taught to fear GOD anymore which leads to chaos.

 We are not teaching our children about GOD and morals anymore. Mother’s are not raising our children anymore. Most parents are not even at home to teach there children or even know anything about them.  Most children are in daycare where the providers don’t teach them, then they move on to school where we are not allowed to have GOD, where do our kids find him.  If the parents  are around they are  trying to be there kids friends and not the adult, then things happen like the shootings at Columbine or Virginia Tech and who does society blame not themselves, but the guns that these kids had, is that the answer, to outlaw guns so we can no longer protect ourselves, I think not.  We need to bring GOD back to our classrooms and back to our lives. I recently received two emails from my father in law that I would like to share:


Thursday, Darrell Scott, the father of Rachel Scott, a victim of the Columbine High School shootings in Littleton , Colorado , was invited to address the House Judiciary Committee's subcommittee. What he said to our national leaders during this special session of Congress was painfully truthful.

They were not prepared for what he was to say, nor was it received well. It needs to be heard by every parent, every teacher, every politician, every sociologist, every psychologist, and every so-called expert! These courageous words spoken by Darrell Scott are powerful, penetrating, and deeply personal. There is no doubt that God sent this man as a voice crying in the wilderness. The following is a portion of the transcript:

"Since the dawn of creation there has been both good &evil in the hearts of men and women. We all contain the seeds of kindness or the seeds of violence. The death of my wonderful daughter, Rachel Joy Scott, and the deaths of that heroic teacher, and the other eleven children who died must not be in vain. Their blood cries out for answers.

"The first recorded act of violence was when Cain slew his brother Abel out in the field. The villain was not the club he used.. Neither was it the NCA, the National Club Association. The true killer was Cain, and the reason for the murder could only be found in Cain's heart.

"In the days that followed the Columbine tragedy, I was amazed at how quickly fingers began to be pointed at groups such as the NRA. I am not a member of the NRA. I am not a hunter. I do not even own a gun. I am not here to represent or defend the NRA - because I don't believe that they are responsible for my daughter's death. Therefore I do not believe that they need to be defended. If I believed they had anything to do with Rachel's murder, I would be their strongest opponent.

I am here today to declare that Columbine was not just a tragedy -- it was a spiritual event that should be forcing us to look at where the real blame lies! Much of the blame lies here in this room. Much of the blame lies behind the pointing fingers of the accusers themselves. I wrote a poem just four nights ago that expresses my feelings best.

Your laws ignore our deepest needs,
Your words are empty air.
You've stripped away our heritage,
You've outlawed simple prayer.
Now gunshots fill our classrooms,
And precious children die.
You seek for answers everywhere,
And ask the question "Why?"
You regulate restrictive laws,
Through legislative creed.
And yet you fail to understand,
That God is what we need!

"Men and women are three-part beings. We all consist of body, mind, and spirit. When we refuse to acknowledge a third part of our make-up, we create a void that allows evil, prejudice, and hatred to rush in and wreak havoc. Spiritual presences were present within our educational
systems for most of our nation's history. Many of our major colleges began as theological seminaries. This is a historical fact. What has happened to us as a nation? We have refused to honor God, and in so doing, we open the doors to hatred and violence. And when something as terrible as Columbine's tragedy occurs -- politicians immediately look for a scapegoat such as the NRA. They immediately seek to pass more restrictive laws that contribute to erode away our personal and private liberties. We do not need more restrictive laws. Eric and Dylan would not have been stopped by metal detectors. No amount of gun laws can stop someone who spends months planning this type of massacre. The real villain lies within our own hearts.

"As my son Craig lay under that table in the school library and saw his two friends murdered before his very eyes, he did not hesitate to pray in school. I defy any law or politician to deny him that right! I challenge every young person in America , and around the world, to realize that on April 20, 1999, at Columbine High School prayer was brought back to our schools. Do not let the many prayers offered by those students be in vain. Dare to move into the new millennium with a sacred disregard for legislation that violates your God-given right to communicate with Him. To those of you who would point your finger at the NRA -- I give to you a sincere challenge. Dare to examine your
own heart before casting the first stone!

My daughter's death will not be in vain! The young people of this country will not allow that to happen!"


Thought you might enjoy this interesting 

prayer given in Kansas at 
the opening session of their House of Representatives back in 1996.  It seems
prayer still upsets some 
people. When Minister Joe Wright was asked to open
the new session of the Kansas House, everyone was expecting the usual
  generalities, but this is what they heard:  

Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask 
your forgiveness and to seek your direction and  
guidance. We know Your Word says, 'Woe to those
who call evil good,' but that is exactly what we

have done.

We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed 

our values. 

We have exploited the poor and called it

the lottery.

We have rewarded laziness and called it 


We have killed our unborn and called  it


We have shot abortionists and called  it 


We have neglected to discipline our
children and called it
 building self esteem.. 

We have abused power and called it  


We have coveted our neighbor's possessions 
and called it 

We have polluted
 the air with profanity and 
nography and called it freedom of expression.  

We have ridiculed the time-honored values 
of our forefathers and called it

Search  us, Oh, God, and know our hearts 
today;  cleanse us from every sin and set us free.  


The response was immediate.. A number of 
legislators walked out during the prayer in 
protest. In 6 short weeks, Central Christian 
Church,  where Rev. Wright is pastor, logged more than 
5,000 phone calls with only 47 of those calls 
responding negatively.. The church is now receiving 
international requests for copies of this prayer 

from India , Africa and Korea . 

Commentator Paul Harvey aired this prayer on 
his radio program, 'The Rest of the Story, 'and 
received a larger response to this program than any   

other he has ever aired.

With the Lord's help, may this prayer sweep 
over our nation and wholeheartedly become our 
desire so that we again can be called 'one nation 

under God.'

Parks, Ducks, Rock walls, gardens and everything in between



(How many ducks can you find?)

This is the first rock wall 
that I personally have ever built

(Technically: FIRE PIT)


(I will not do that again)
