Holy cow! You guys actually pay attention to our ramblings!!! we've been getting email after email about how we haven't blogged for days (and I missed Friday Freebie - so sorry! Will rectify that shortly...). Here's what happened. My grandpa lives on the farm here with my mother. He celebrated his 90th birthday this past weekend, and we had a big family party planned - folks coming in from Washington and Colorado and staying for days. BUT then my grandpa "decided" to celebrate his 90th with a hospital visit for blood clots! He's okay now, but it was a kerfuffle for a while...loads of family camped out here at the PLH farm visits to the hospital, etc. Because this is a family business with only two employees, when family emergencies happen it tends to make us cut out on our "normal" business activities.

(my mom and grandpa by our copper still)

Grandpa is home now, celebrated his 90th in style, and is looking forward to years and years of good health. We're getting back into our regular work routine. Thanks so much, everyone, for all the emails asking about us. We'll be better about keeping you posted in the future!
