To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not, rich; to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart; to study hard; to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently, await occasions, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common--this is my symphony.

The True Southern Child

It seems we have raised true southern children...this morning the kids discovered a hole in their new slip-n-slide. When I told them I didn't think I could fix it they asked why I just didn't use duct tape:-)

And just WHY won't duct tape work?
