The Bed Is Forgiven

Cat Warmers


This is the first day I’ve been able to turn off the cat warmers after this past week of freezing temperatures. At night, I open the cabinet doors to keep the pipes warm, but Precious the Puppy will tear everything out of the cabinets when she’s up so during the day I was just keeping this cat warmer near the cabinets with the doors shut. I have a couple more I’ve had running at other key locations, and I think I got through this first bad winter spell with no frozen pipes except possibly one drain line on the outer wall of the cellar. I have pipes in some places that are just about impossible to protect, but so far, not bad for this winter’s pipe protection plan! All main pipes got through just fine. And all the cats are warm…..

    I’m afraid this is going to end up requiring scissors…..

    My friend Jerry (aka my official photographer) stopped by this weekend to shoot a new gun he had gotten and to sight my .22 and 30-30, which were both a little off. We went way back to the woods at the back of this field, to get far enough away from the horses. Horses always act like they think someone’s out to get them and … Continued…

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
