Springtime in Caneyhead

I've been drinking in all the beauty of springtime lately. The softness of the air. The variation of all the new shades of green. The new growth, new life that is abounding. Wanted to share a little glimpse of Caneyhead here with you.

Bug's Prissy horse. Blue-eyed baby! Will be three the end of June.

A logger-head turtle Pete found on the road. Brought home and released out by our pond.

A totally natural cock fight. When left to themselves they fight, but one will get tired, run away, hide, etc. It's just a jockeying for position thing....pecking order, if you will.

The beautiful potato patch by daylight.

Nothing like sitting by a beautiful tee-pee style fire, listening to good music and relaxing!

Young, tender mustard greens. Yum. Twice this size now. And some are going to get cooked this weekend.

Twenty-eight baby chicks!

One of fourteen four leaf clovers we found last Sunday!

Hope you've enjoyed your glimpse into Springtime in Caneyhead. You can't imagine how blessed I feel to live here. I still love getting out seeing other places and things....but nothing compares to the peace that settles over my soul when I turn off the little Farm Market road and head toward my house as the woods close in and the pine trees cast their shade over me.

Local Issue - Commissioners Run-off Election

This next Tuesday, April 13th, is the run-off election for Hardin Co. Commissioner of Pct. 2. And I am making this entry for two reasons: to urge everyone who is eligible to go and vote and to urge those who do to vote for Dalton Morrow.

Many times people say that their vote doesn't matter, doesn't count because one vote more or less won't change anything. Of course if everyone thought that way, no one would vote and no one would ever be elected. But in this run-off election that way of thinking is totally wrong. One vote more than the other candidate is all that is needed to win!

Pete & I support Dalton Morrow for this position. Dalton has been working as foreman under Commission Pat McGallion and has already been saving the county money while getting the job done. His experience with equipment and knowledge as a mechanic (one of the best around...who do you think taught Pete?!) has allowed him to make quality purchases of equipment for less money, and scheduling maintenance and repairs in house has saved the county much more. He also has plans "to work closely with the other commissioners in the county to secure grants to improve our drainage systems and roads." He knows where these grants would serve us best.

I do hope you will vote and that your vote will be for Dalton Morrow. If somehow you don't know him already, you can find out more about him HERE.
