I'll put a star * on their pages for future reference!
With the unfortunate initials of Mrs. M.A.D., our farmer's wife, from Sargent County, N.D., seems happy indeed to live the country life. She speaks highly of recent "recognized neccessities being fast installed on every farm" giving many farm women "time to attend fairs, enjoy the newspaper, hear good music and manicure her finger nails." (I got a kick out of that last perk as I could use one of those myself!)
Butterfly at the Crossroads-Block #14She goes on to add, "In listing a few of the comforts of the farmer's wife, I have not listed any of the discomforts I may fancy my city friend labors under. If she is happy and I am happy, why disturb this happiness?" Why, indeed!
Windmill-Block #108Her wise conclusion, "I wish my daughter to lead a good and useful life, one of which it may truly be said when she departs, 'the world is better for her having lived in it'."
I wish the same for my daughter. And for myself.
Only two more weeks and 5 blocks to go...my pile is getting high. Be sure to visit Cindy, at Live a Colorful Life, as she finishes up her blocks in solids only.
I love them so!
