    Modern Acadian or Gulf Coast Venacular?

    I had some requests to post more photos of my sister's house, so here you go. She describes her house as 21st Century/Modern Acadian. And of course she threw in some Gulf Coast Venacular language... I'll show you around and let you decide. You will [...]

    Country Mouse Visits City Mouse

    We had a wonderful Christmas visiting my sister and her family in the city. Although they live in the city, you don't feel like it when you're at their place because their home is surrounded by pines. You can barely see any of the neighboring houses. [...]

    I'm a country dork, but come to think of it, I was a city dork, too...

    I love living at Hummingbird Farms for many reasons, but one of the main reasons is because it provides me my wide-open spaces that I just have to have. And I’m completely serious when I say HAVE TO HAVE. I am, you see, extremely claustrophobic. [...]

    I'll Be Home For Christmas & Then I'll Check Myself Into Therapy

    I'm Back! Sorry for my MIAedness. It's a busy time here at Hummingbird Farms. I sure can relate to Santa's little elves right now - working around the clock day and night checking off those lists and knowing who's been naughty or nice. We were [...]

    Last week I was at the WalBall, that would be Walmart for most of you, but I call it the WalBall.I don’t know why, I just do.I call lots of things by other names because I get some sort of weird thrill from this. I know it’s a genetic thing [...]
