Musings about Outhouses, Slopping Hogs, and Cesspools

Americans often think our sanitation system has been in place for eons but no, my grandparents used outhouses and I did too, when I visited them. I remember when I was little. I loved the farm animals and really, truly wanted to be helpful and feed my grandma’s hogs. Unfortunately, I had to walk across […]

Jackson took yesterday to travel to Nairobi so he could be at the US Embassy at 6:45 this morning for his visa interview. Alas! He was turned down because he applied for a tourist visa and the letter I sent sounded as if he is coming on business, to solicit funds for the well. Of […]
