  1. Ha! Running. I should have thought of that one. If you see me running, you'd better start running because something scary is right behind me!

  2. There are several books about Eleanor Roosevelt listed on Amazon, all of them with almost five star reviews.

  3. Eleanor fascinates me. I've been to her house in Val-Kill, about 2 miles from the big house at Hyde Park. Happy birthday.

  4. How wonderful to know you have a farm. It must be tonnes of work! Glad your husband's hip is good now. Thank you for dropping in to my blog. Best wishes and good vibes.

  5. #5 - no cattle? I have read a couple of good books on Eleanor Roosevelt. I'll see if I can find the titles. She was a fascinating woman.

  6. I guess with a farm you end up seeing lots of animals all the time. If I go for a walk in the countryside I can add, sheep, cattle, horses, pigs, hens etc. to my list.
