GO AHEAD AND COUNT THEM-
Gratitude is good for you
On November 2, 1800 President John Adams
wrote to his Wife Abigail.
I send his words to you on a personal level
about your home.
And they are issued here again as
Adams meant them, as he was a new occupant
of the White House.
I pray Heaven to bestow the best of blessings
on this house and all that shall hereafter inhabit it.
May none but honest and wise (men) ever rule
under this roof."
I count friendship as a great blessing.
Long and lasting friendship is a cause for
"The holy passion of Friendship is of so sweet
and steady and loyal and enduring nature that
it will last through a whole lifetime,
if not asked to lend money."
And again today, our neighbors on the Top of the World
ridge top, made their parade, terrorizing our cats.
If anything feels lucky today, it should be
these messy cretins from a prehistoric age.
but we are glad to see them
and thankful to share one of
their commercially raised cousins.
(organic of course)
See you down the trail.
