Nubian Dairy Goats


Welcome to Grandpa's Little Farm located in Washington!
Ernie on his toy

A year ago, April, I received an order from Shannon Rogers in Maryland. He wanted some old style double spiral bits to experiment with. For those of you who do not know of him, Shannon owns and runs The Hand Tool School. This is an on-line school with 'apprentices' literally all over the world! So Shannon not only loved the bits, but recommended me to the rest of the school! The result was I soon became so inundated, I had to have Jessica shut down the ordering 'devices' on this site to give me time to catch up and re-organinze.

During this time I applied to and became a sponsor to a very exclusive wood working, Mortise & Tenon. This is an annual publication that is about to publish two issues per year. They cater to traditional hand tool crafts persons, and are very choosy as to who can have ads. I was quite honored to be accepted to their ranks!

My Drilling Work Area

Sad to say, the goats are gone. Physical limitations pretty much dictated finding them a new home. Thankfully we found them a wonderful new home clearing brush at a local truck terminal. I understand the drivers often go out and watch them as if they were zoo exhibits. It tugs at the heart when I go by the pens, but it had to be and they have a wonderful new home.

Theology by Extension (INSTI) classes are pretty much wrapped up. I'll be getting a two year certificate soon. Attending the classes answered so many questions and helped me develop and grow as a Christian.

Ernie and his honey bees

Karin (Grandma) is learning to enjoy her retirement. She crafts in the winter and gardens during the summer.

We had to put off bees one more year, but definitely hope to have a hive or two this spring.

So we are still the farm. People still get peace coming to visit, even if it is only in their imagination. So pull off your shoes, put on the old straw had and come on back to the farm.

Take care,
Ernie (Grandpa)
