Historical Tidbit:

Leland Farm
Loved the story about Leland Farm, as it became when "Grandpa" Leland bought out Herbert Harlow. 

The "boy" on the hay wagon was my Uncle, Bob Leland. He married my mother's youngest sister back in 1932. Both have passed on now, as has their oldest son, Arthur Leland, my cousin. So sorry the farm was razed years ago. I used to pick potatoes out back of the farm during the summertime. We kids got 5 cents a bushel to pick 'em!!

“It’s only after you’ve stepped outside your comfort zone that you begin to change, grow, and transform.” ~Roy T. Bennett

“Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.”
~ Rumi

“The only way that we can live, is if we grow. The only way that we can grow is if we change. The only way that we can change is if we learn. The only way we can learn is if we are exposed. And the only way that we can become exposed is if we throw ourselves out into the open. Do it. Throw yourself.” ~ C. JoyBell C.

Love can change a person the way a parent can change a baby- awkwardly, and often with a great deal of mess.”~ Lemony Snicket
“And that is how change happens. One gesture. One person. One moment at a time.”~ Libba Bray

We are ready, we are prepared, for the next great change. ~ Jacquie
