A Closer Look at Now and Then

Paco tooled off to the local farmer's market this morning armed with jars of his homemade crabapple jelly. This evening he's down at a neighbor's hoping to trade some more jelly for garlic. Oh how times have changed. Stroll with me down memory lane.

A Place Where It Was Never Done Then

And so it goes. If I've learned ONE thing in life it is that EVERYTHING has a tradeoff--you give up certain things and gain others with every decision. Hopefully we all adapt and make peace with our choices. Don't ask me where I'D rather changes. But all in all, life here at Provident Heritage Farm hums--and so do we.

A question I've been wanting to ask for a long time now...WHO THE HECK IS PACO?

He to whom I am married.

Interesting turn of events that you didn't see coming, and maybe they aren't so permanent...

Having left your Farm/Ranch less than a month ago, I can swear to it that although all the changes you mention have indeed come, I have never seen Paco (my son, Jerry) as happy as he is today. It's obvious that all he really needs to be content is Marilyn, and the faithful dog, Mugsy. The Lord knows what we need, thank goodness. Mitzi Hadd
