An Oddity, and the Girls


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 gunfire freaks them out. The cows, on the other hand, come right up to the gate as if asking to come in on the other side and see the shooting up close. The funny thing is, people are out to get cows! Yet it’s the horses who get scared.

Odd, that!

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....
