Thursday, and tomorrow is go home early day

Little black goat is  almost as wide as she is tall, but she is not making a bag yet.  So, it is not likely she will have babies until at least a month from now.  We will see.

Patsy and Hot Rod with ears flying.  Tomorrow I will go get Robert and Hannah and they will get to see the kids.  

I bought a ham, well half a ham.  I am going to cook it Saturday instead of Sunday since the kids will have to go home Sunday.  I got a Cooks ham.  Clayton always said Cooks ham was the best.  I never thought there was much difference in brands, but last year I tried a Cooks ham and it was much better than many I had tried.  I read where Cooks ham was rated second place in a taste test here

Tuesday, March 26

Was a little bit warmer today.  At least we had sun shine.

Mama took the Hot Rod and Patsy down on the pond bank to play.

Heart Brownie

I found this heart shaped brownie recipe on another blog here  I think I will try making one of these for Robert next weekend.  The recipe calls for cream cheese frosting, but I may just use cool whip under the strawberries.

Our Gov...

We have a Demo Gov now instead of the Huckster.  Today he vetoed our paranoid Representative's voter ID law.  It seems the repubs, like the King of NW AR that our district sent to the nut house in Little Rock, are always crying for the less government at less cost until it comes to trying to shape things to their own ideals.  Then, they want more and more government at greater cost in both $$ and freedoms. King want less government except when he does not.  He wants to cut government spending, except when he does not.

Monday, March 25, still cold

Mama is out grazing in the cold, but she does not go far from the barn.

Babies come out and play some, but it is so cold, they spend most of the day in the barn trying to keep warm.

I think Patsy should name her goat Helen.  Then, if we get another Nanny, we will name her Betty.

Sunday, March 24

Done with cleaning and searching the net for people.  It has been cold, cold, and blowing snow and snot all day. No accumulations but cloudy and misty from horizon to horizon nearly all day.  So, I cleaned out my treasure chest today.  Well sorta.  I have an old black chest in my bedroom that I have had for about 25 years or more.  It has a whole lot of junk in it.  I went through and threw away some of it and sorted and stacked the rest.  I found the newspaper from when I graduated from HS with all our pictures.  That got me to thinking about where some of these people are now.

This is the list. Do you know any of these people?  Graduated in 1965.

That is 51, with 5 known deceased.  Some of these I know where they are now, either because they still live here and I know who they married, or because they have unusual names that are easy to search and find on the net.

But, I found this when searching for Kenny Gallant.

Current Huntsville Eagles coach Jim Stafford, No. 11 in the 1963 photo above, coached the 1,000th victory of his 37-year career last week. Stafford, a Green Forest native, played for Coach Fred Grim, at right, and helped the Tigers in Grim's second year reach the semifinals of the state tournament.
