~Sunflower Snaps~

Ok… Mrs. Shecky’s blog is trying out the “story” app on WordPress and I am not sure about it yet. Here is the first. It was pretty easy as long as the photos are on the cell phone, but I still can’t find out where that “story” part of the post is? Hmmmm….. news at…

~Swinging & Singing~

Pull up a seat, swing and sing. This oak has been determined to be between 200-300 years old and has been registered so we love it. Most of the big oaks on the property are at least that age and they are the perfect trees to sit under and relax for awhile. Robust, strong, and…

~Mini Estates #1~

It is on the way. I will say this, even though I really love doing this, my back is breaking!! It is on an upgrade and this construction bit is a tad hard on the slant in boots. In any case, Mrs. Shecky is determined and will update as I go. Hope you enjoy the…
