My Chronicles

So these are stories of life, according to me.   I want to emphasize the word “stories.”   I am not a writer, but a storyteller.  I’m not grammatically correct and I think I might have flunked that part in school that had something to do with diagramming sentences.  I’m still not sure what all that was about….

Anyway, some of my stories are from right here on the farm, while others might be while I am on the road traveling.  I might tell stories about our bath & body business, or I might reflect back to something silly twenty years ago.  Who knows... anything goes! I'm a little bit country, and a little bit rock and roll.

    Like a Porch….

      I want to lay up like that, to float unstructured, without ambition or anxiety.  I want to inhabit my life like a porch.   - Rebecca Wells, Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood

    A photographic journey

    We’ve been busy little bees, or hummingbirds, here at Hummingbird Farms the last few weeks.  First off – after 7 years, we decided it was time to update photography for our alleged new website.  I say “alleged” [...]

    What I have learned from old dogs and old ladies

    I saw a posting on Facebook today from a friend who mentioned a shelter that was full of old dogs that had been “turned over” by their owners.  I'm not sure of all the various reasons why these old dogs are turned over, but I [...]
