Today in 1890


Wounded Knee For SaleToday in history the last major conflict of the Indian wars took place at Wounded Knee Creek in South Dakota after Colonel James W. Forsyth of the 7th Cavalry  disarms Chief Big Foot and his followers.

Some 300 Sioux Indians are killed by U.S. troops at the Wounded Knee massacre.

This is a sad and horrendous piece of the history of the United States.  It is our hope that going froward our history can show more bright spots than dark.

A new year


christmas wishWe were discussing today’s Winter Solstice and wondering if we should write our disappointments from the closing year down on paper, and burn them, sending the ashes of our despair drifting into the wind.  We both thought for a moment and in one voice said.  :Ya know. this has been a darn good year!”

For you all we wish happiness and joy to you and your families for Christmas, and our coming New Year.  We wish for you love and prosperity, health and safety.

We wish you many blessings

With Love

From J.T. and Tilly
