"All gave some...some gave all." 
The saying is simple but so poignantly true. 
No one serves in our United States Armed Forces without paying a price. 
Some pay the ultimate price and we remember them on Memorial Day. 

To all those who serve or have served, we offer you our heartfelt gratitude.

HOORAY for Palouse!

HOORAY for Palouse!

We are excited to note that McLeod's Palouse Market and Palouse's own Roy M. Chatters Newspaper and Printing Museum both have featured articles written by Cheryl Reed-Dudley in the just-released Spring 2012 issue of Uniquely Palouse magazine! This wonderful publication highlights the unparalleled attributes of life in this region, and boy are we honored to be a part of it.

Time to DREAM...

"Yesterday is but today's memory, and tomorrow is today's dream." 
                                                            --Khalil Gibran

Late spring to early summer on the Palouse is a time of stunning change. Barren fields turn to lush seas of green and the skies stage a dance all their own. 

I love this place.

Happy Friday!

We love you, MOMS!

Circa 1971 - the lil' grocer and his mom having a little outdoor fun.

Also circa 1971, me--the painfully shy girl with blue glasses--and my mom.

We love you, MOMS!

To see why they deserve our unending gratitude, peek back at last year's

Happy Mother's Day!

twins Fern (closest) and Jennifer
lost their mom but are doing just great as bottle babies
It's spring in Palouse and that means lamb time! Last May in my Counting Sheep post, I had a great time learning a bit about our local Gar-Pal (Garfield-Palouse) 4-H/FFA, some of the the kids who participate, and of course, the sheep. So this year, I couldn't wait to meet a few of the new additions. 

so ridiculously...


milk on the chin (Fern) and a little on the face (Jennifer)

front to back: The Fonz (aka Fonzie - more on that later), Nelly, and Jennifer

Nelly (mom to twins Charlie and Fonzie)


handsome, no?

Not sure why I'm drawn to taking pics of lambs' backsides, but they just
crack (no pun intended) me up!

Front to back: twins Charlie and Fonzie (who my friend, Libby, named after The Fonz from Happy Days "for his outrageously hilarious and perfect parted hair when he was born" which, she explains, "swirled upward" in signature Fonz-style).

Fern (like her half-brother Champ from last year) liked the camera

Jennifer and Clove getting their frolic on

seeing double (l to r): Jennifer and Fern

and finally, nap-time
Little Bo Peep has nothing on these guys!
