I have Sold Off The Farm

That's what I told my family and close friends this morning.








I didn't expect the response -  messages and calls came flooding in. Why would I want to do that? I have got blood, sweat and a lot of durians falling there.

They all rallied around me, as they always do in times of trouble. Sometimes it's the only way to get their attention.  It's good to know they love you. And The Farm.










Of course I was just pulling their legs.  Everybody seems to be doing that today. :) :) :)

Grandpa,
Well sir, I love your farm. The 'wee folks' who live in my garden, love your farm, and of course, Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet star, most assuredly loves your farm.
Gosh Grandpa, nothing like pulling a few legs eh! :)

So, are you addicted yet? Which is your favourite fruit...durian or BlackBerry??

Joylene Butler said...

Grandpa! You almost gave me and Penny the Jack Russell dog a heart attack. You are bad!!! LOL.

Grandpa, thanks for stopping by for a laugh. And yes, prayer always works. But sometimes the answer is "yes" or "no" or "not now." God's time is always "right now" and I learned a long time ago (the hard way) that His plan is better than what we could have ever come up with. Just let it unfold.

As this is a personal message please feel free not to publish it.

As always I'm sending you my warmest wishes - and thats no April Fools joke!

your pal,

Ann Best said...

You didn't fool me. I knew you'd never sell it. I wouldn't if I were in your shoes, unless I were imminently passing out of this life!

Jennifer Hillier said...

Happy April Fool's Day!

Aishah said...

I had just fallen in love with your farm, and I wondered if your steps were ready. Does this mean there won't be anymore Life On The Farm?

Please tell me it was just an April's fool.

Glad that I could still read those small prints.

You have a beautiful farm Grandpa.

Pk Hrezo said...

Hey, Grandpa! So was that your big April Fools... that your selling the Farm?

Looks like a wonderful place. :)

Grandpa said...

Thank you all for your comments, and your compliments. I hope I didn't scare you too much. I know you all have not only kind but strong hearts too.

I've learned to disbelieve everything I head on April 1st.

Serena said...

You tease...I was fooled too ~ lol

Lady Jennie said...

If it had not been so long after April Fool's Day I would have fallen for it too.

Armand Cordero said...

Your place looks amazing. I love the outdoors. You're so lucky to be there!
