Kickin' back, musing, observing, and gathering inspiration from the hills of East Tennessee.

Meet Nacho and Uncle Earl. They are new members of the family of neighbors down the road. Uncle Earl is the (Mustang) horse who is actually a "she" but the owners insist she's Uncle Earl, but with no explanation as to why that name applies. Anyway, Earl has had some problems in the past with people and she needs a lot of patience so that she builds up her trust of people. She's coming along great, though. Nacho, the donkey, is great company for Earl and they seem to get along just fine.
Rabbits cookin' coffee -- that's what the locals call it. But here in this little hollow in East Tennessee, when the hills surrender their misty hostage to reveal the stalwart cedars growing by the stream in our pasture, I know there is no place on earth I would rather be. The welcome mat is out! Come and sit on the porch and chat with me awhile!
