Stop by & offer a few pointers, or point & laugh, as a few old farts figure out the fine art of living... Life on a Few Acres


Hi, thanks for stopping by!  I am a complete novice at blogging, but back in the Mary tyler Moore dark ages of journalism, the rules of writing  were something along the lines of answering the following: Who what when where & why.

4/21/16 update:  We've grown to 7 RIR layers, 1 rooster, 2 Nigerian dwarves 2 barn cats and 3 occasional canines.

The why:
