My Sweet Baby Girl

My sweet baby girl turned 17 today. She is such a wonderful young woman. There isn't much trace of the little girl left anymore. I am so proud of her. She is my pride and joy.

Out of Doors

Yesterday, we put together hobos and spent the rest of the evening outside.

If you've never made a hobo, here's the basics: meat, veggies (we used red potatoes, yams, carrots, and onions), seasoning, herbs, and a pat of butter all wrapped up in foil. I'm not a fan of foil. If I had a dutch oven, we would have used that instead.

You wrap the foil up tight and put it on the coals to cook. A couple of Boy Scouts made this fire, so it's too big for our little pit. We had to put our hobos right on the flames. This still works as long as you rotate the packages often and don't mind a little charbroil flavor.

While the boys kept an eye on dinner, I caught up on some gardening chores. 

My sweet pepper plants surprised me with a few last minute gifts. Up until now, my sweet peppers have not produced anything at all.

It was also time to finish harvesting the herb bed. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with my "planter" next year. Maybe I'll just keep using it as an herb bed. It did quite well. It would also be pretty for flowers.

My final bounty.

The kids set the table for us and brewed some iced tea. They worked hard to make this meal come together. They make me so happy.

Dinner was delicious. It was a very peaceful evening..

Aim High, Girls!

This magazine needs a new title. I'm thinking along the lines of "Seventeen and Pregnant".

Coming up in November's Issue: "Start Your Own Cottage Industry: Get More Bucks for Your Bang."

Vote Ron Paul!

I've been campaigning for Ron Paul because I believe in the Constitution of the United States of America. I want a president who'll stand by it and protect our rights.
"Repeal ObamaCare and end its unconstitutional mandate that all Americans must carry only government-approved health insurance or answer to the IRS" RON PAUL!
"As an Air Force veteran, Ron Paul believes national defense is the single most important responsibility the Constitution entrusts to the federal government." RON PAUL!
It's time for our country to explore affordable, environmentally sound, and reliable energy through a free market. End the EPA. Polluters should answer to landowners and real people for the damages they inflict. RON PAUL!
It's time to END THE FED! RON PAUL!
Our country needs a FLAT TAX. No more corporate bailouts or elitist loopholes. RON PAUL!
Read about him for yourself, then decide: RON PAUL!
