Photo of the month

We're ready to do some haulin' now that we've got our own pickup truck. Glenn acquired a 2008 Ford F-150 this month from his brother, whose company sold it for a bargain basement price as they close up shop. It was a deal we couldn't pass up. Photo by Roni.

Celebrate the spirit of America

"There is one day that is ours. There is one day when all we Americans who are not self-made go back to the old home to eat saleratus biscuits and marvel how much nearer to the porch the old pump looks than it used to. Thanksgiving Day is the one day that is purely American."
― O. Henry
