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.

Saturday Funny

Claire has a stuffed pig she calls Ruty.

Ruty is actually short for Rutabaga.

Ruty was married but her husband died. It's okay because it was a long time ago.

Before Mr Ruty died though, he and Ruty had a baby.

Claire named the baby Bacon.
