<quoted text>My grandfather was born in 1884 and grandma 1886. I have the fondest memories fighting over who was getting to the Sorghum Cake first. 15 children in all they had, sharecroppers and logsmen. Never owned more than what it took to plant a garden, and canned what it took to live through the winter. He used to cut his grass with a butcher knife(only where it needed it)and was a veterinarian. Dad used to let me ride the mule when he plowed, seemed like 20 ft. up at the time. Most children nowadays will only have fond memories of getting an X-Box or something, but fond memories they will be!
So know what you mean, when I was little , my grandpa would plow the baccor, and I would rid with him. Then years later , I was the one driving it. Yea a sight to see a young girl of 14 driving that tractor. Those days are so few now, that I try to raise my children this way also. I cook on Sunday and everyone is invited to eat , and my children know all about hauling in hay, working the garden and all the things that I grew up doing. Life was so much more then. You kissed each other goodnight , and kissed each other good morning. Until the day we put my grandfather away , he never went a day without tellin my grandma how much he loved her . Their love was one dreams were made of .. Nite to all , hope your loved ones, value you each , for all you are, and never take you for granted...And may you have the love that dreams are made of!!!!

Good night, AB. Sleep well.
I was so excited to finally see a hummingbird yesterday on our homestead. They are SO late arriving here. I was worried that the climate change had either killed them off or they had gone elsewhere. Thankfully I get to enjoy them for another season.
I'm getting old. You never know if you're going to get another 'tomorrow' or not. I appreciate everything that I get to see of Gods blessings on this Earth. City people only know birds as nasty and pesky poop machines for the most part.(Pigeons, etc). They don't get to experience seeing such a mass variety of winged creatures such as we do.
I got the other three feeders out today. Two of which are too far from the windows to see activity.
Uni, you mentioned earlier about your 4 o'clocks and how the hummies are drawn to them. I love 4 o'clocks but they are invasive, so I have to watch where I place them. Around the wood line is where I have things such as that. It keeps the more invasive plants out of my groomed flower beds. Less work for me, and I feel that I'm doing my part by feeding the hummies in another way...
Nite to u Dear. I think we are a dying few , that so enjoy these things. I only have two feeders, and my kids are overdosing them on sugar, boy the hummers are really humming all day . Been lucky though, have had them the whole time.

I'm not going to bed quite yet. But probably soon.

Have you ever made the mistake of putting too much sugar into your feeders? The the sun and heat ferments it, getting the little guys tipsy.....

You might want to explain this to the kids, lol. You also really have to be a little careful about placing the feeders in direct sunlight, as well as how much sugar you put in them, lol. Intoxicated hummies aren't healthy hummies. I learned that lesson the hard way. Fermentation happens pretty quickly in those feeders with this horrible heat, LOL.

What a refreshing story! More please! It makes me feel a bit better to read that a parent actually knows who to parent their children in the right manner. Work doesn't hurt a child, nor does passing the stories on about their ancestors. They'll appreciate all you're doing and telling them one day.

It's raining here! Thunder off in the distance, ever so calming... I adore a steady rain at night. Tomorrow everything will be crisp and clean..

Also, nice to see out new visitors in the thread. Please stick around! This is a wonderfully informational and fun thread. Is is possible that you newbies could register on Topix so we know for sure who we're talking to?
(Also it keeps someone from hijacking your user name for ill purposes and placing nasty comments)...

Good comment for debate, but unfortunately my brain is too fried for that one tonight. I'd ramble and make an utter fool of myself...

Tomorrow would be a great time to pop in and talk with the regulars on this thread. Great debates roll in here! Sorry, I'm just too pooped tonight. It's bed time for me...

Please though, come back tomorrow and let's get a discussion rolling on this, OK?

No, it did not get removed. I don't understand why you think they are gone, when they most certainly are not.
Some few just like to draw attention to themelves by creating controversy. The inspirational posts (even if copy-pasted) are much better than rectal body functions, continual arguing, denials, and useless sarcasm of other people's faiths or life-styles.... NOW THAT IS THE REAL SPAM.

I can usually tell imposters from the real....people have distinct ways of typing...sorta like handwriting, not real worried about it. Plus the black bird thing is so 2011, I like more up to date bible prophecy.

I know all about the old country days of riding the mule, curing pork, rendering lard, churning butter, packing water, no electricy, and the morning treks to take the thunder mug to the little house on the hill with the half-moon cut into the door. I have now purchased my childhood home next to the farm my grandfather once owned, but is now all woods. I started here and I will end here but fortunately the TVA and the RECC have made life much easier.

But I still take daily walks down mmemory lane to look at the foundation of my grandfather's old house of Love. I can also ride to the little country church about a mile away where my ancestor was married in 1806. I AM HOME.
