People are always coming over and saying, “Your goats are out!”


“I let them out.”

    nanaK–Exactly. I’m sure goat-mowing will be a new trend when folks discover it is non-polluting, renewable and nice and furry. :)

    Loved your book! My daughter wants to borrow it, but I am reluctant to let it go from me for even a minute!!!

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....
