Tool Time

January 26, 2016

Bob and I spent last week in Maryland celebrating birthdays and enjoying time with family and friends (the day after we left, the Jonas blizzard dumped 2 feet of snow on the farm). Dad's winter project is organizing and displaying his collection of antique tools. He turned an old shed into a mini museum.

Dad can tell visitors specifics on each tool and how it was used.

I took this photo of Dad with his favorite calendar on his 78th birthday. 

Dad found this book at an auction. I like the quote: "For successful farming, three conditions are necessary -- knowledge, capital and fondness for the pursuit." (Credit is given to Columella, a farmer and writer during the Roman empire.)

Mom was hard at work on Sunday directing the Moore's Chapel choir (I took this photo during rehearsal in the church basement). She's been the choir director for 50 years!
