life on the Oregon frontier just went environmental

Jane showed off her new auto harp when last the band practiced. It's pretty cool, but she has trouble keeping it in tune. We are going to the Old Time Fiddlers jam session at the senior center on Sunday. We're getting very brave. I had some voice coaching from Joan Sutter, member of the Sage Rates, guitarist and singer extraordinaire. I doubt it helped much but I can pretend. I realize I haven't posted in a while but we're in the winter doldrums here. Not much snow after that last tiny storm. A little rain. Lots of sunshine. It's been a very very mild winter. Thoughts are turning to spring. I ordered another lemon tree from Guerney's plus a lime tree. I'm battling aphids on the lemon tree right now which is in bloom again. I use a weak solution of dish liquid and spray it on. Environment friendly solution. Ms. Speckles, the banty hen, hatched a chick yesterday and she is sitting one more. It is a white leghorn mix. Tiny yellow piece of fluff. She's very determined. John's sister visited last week overnight to check out the Lazy J. We had a very nice visit and I believe she like it here.
