For now, he obtains his little square box in the church area garden. I’m not a nature woman however did discover a publication title that captured my eye in the collection. It was “Goodbye, My Subaru”, composed by Doug Penalty. It caught my focus because that’s the brand name of car I drive. The cover photo was cute, with a garden growing under the hood of the automobile.

This book was an enjoyable, light-hearted read. His adventures started with cars and truck difficulty, a flash flooding, acquiring two goats and also some chicks. The goats misbehaved but he grew affixed to them. He had to encourage the assessor that his home was a ranch. He moved on to trying vegetable oil fuel, installing photovoltaic panels and also a well, searching as well as horticulture.
