“Some old-fashioned things like fresh air and sunshine are hard to beat. In our mad rush for progress and modern improvements let's be sure we take along with us all the old-fashioned things worth while.” Laura Ingalls Wilder

On Top Of Old Smokie ...

We had a rip roaring bon fire yesterday ... fueled by tree trunks that were strewn on our property probably when the neighborhood road was put in.  Massive trunks ... uprooted ... eyesores that were cut up and hauled to our fire pit to burn.  We gave ourselves five years to clean up the property and turn it into a natural park like setting, with our well manicured front yard and home carved out of the wilderness.  Our yard is a work in progress.  I have a vision of a small vineyard along one side that will displace some of the grass.  It's enjoyable to take the time to get a feel for the layout and develop the landscape after living on the land for awhile.
