My neighbor had an apple tree loaded with fruit so I decided to make applesauce and can it for the winter.

I really did walk to school every day in middle school and my freshman year in high school but it was in my back yard for god sake. I do remember more than one day walking in knee deep snow and my pants being wet when I...

It really went fast and we were home before 1030. I paid bills and balanced the check book before going to the shop to finish a frame that goes around the outside of a house address sign made of terra cota that my wife and I bought two Christmas ago. I will install it tomorrow morning and then a...
