(Words not for the cows lining up for hay in their colorful, happy barn on Pickerel Lake Road, but for us during election season.)

    Perfect quote for these times, Maureen! Thanks!

    P.S. I made a pot of rushta (sp?) this a.m., and it came out beautifully–you entertain me, you teach me, and, Dear Cousin, you inspire me!
