Pretension

Sometimes a good pretence makes the best offence.

Roo’s narration will give you some chuckles. I particularly like these quote below and wonder if it’s true with our menfolk 😉

Crosswalk

I can imagine this framed and hung up in a café or any area where it would be the cause for conversation. I even see a story in the photo.

Farm chores with grandpap and grandma’s kitchen table
