    Someone gave me a couple of mullein plants a couple of years ago and I foolishly let one go to seed...they are EVERYWHERE now!! Hubby is not amused! LOL!!

  5. I thought about you as I was watching Ken Burns' "The Dust Bowl" this week. It reminded me of your love for the Missouri land, the challenges it provides, as well as the beauty it shares. A woman named Caroline Henderson was profiled in the series and her story made me think of your passion. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving. I'm thankful you're here to regularly offer us a "slice" of your life!
