1. Here's another vintage 1940s Appalachian photo from my grandmother's album. I find it interesting that the horse has so much scar tissue on his shoulder and neck. Wonder what gouged him up like that?
3. During the days when we had 20 inches of snow coating the ground, I was petting Willie one evening and found a tick on him. A tick. In 20 inches of snow. Aren't they all dead yet?
4. Pierce has been a little forgetful lately. The other day I was in his room and found the shirt that he was supposed to wear to school. Only he was at school and he wasn't wearing it. Which means he was wearing what? A pajama top? Nothing? I went through his laundry hamper and finally decided he must've gone to school wearing the same shirt he had worn the day before. Nice.
5. Driving back from the DMV one day, Reid said very serious, "Mom, I don't like carrots." I said, "okay, thanks for telling me." He said, in tears, "Mom I really don't like carrots." And Cort chimed in, "Mom I don't like carrots either!" Then they both started crying. Oh my. Who knew packing carrots in the lunchboxes was such horrible parenting?
