My friend, John~
A prayer to my friend, God, would be to attend your classes to listen to you again~I learned so much that warm day about one year ago or so. I often wonder how your limburger cheese came about. :)
We now have chickens (they were darling gifts from my hubby, Chuckles, for my 58th birthday this year). Yep, I'll take them over a diamond ring anyday! He is now redesigning the grandchildren's treehouse/play house into a girl's dormitory right outside my sleeping room. :) That surely will give the neighbors something to talk about!!! :) Hope to plant a few Bird of Paradise in front of their domain ... sort of a play on words...would plant an edible ornamental, but it is pretty shady...although the rhubarb thrives in that little nook of the cottage's ???yard???? :)
Bless you for your informative narrative~I am always lifted in spirit when I read your emails to the group! You are a trove of great information; a book needs to be written by you!
