  1. July 4, 2016 - Flood Video

    Video I forgot I’d taken on the day of the flood.

    We really had absolutely no idea what was going on in the outside world that day, especially what was happening in nearby Clendenin.

    First we had that determined duck mama, and now we have the hen. She’s a naughty hen to begin with as she escaped the chicken house and refused to be caught.

    Cow’s milk Jarlsberg cheese, air-drying before waxing.

    Sour cream, draining.

    Goat’s milk Jarlsberg, in the press, and a soft cheese draining (cow’s milk).

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia.
