Re: Re: head count

I'm a holdover from the old AHS list too. Many thanks to Chris for
keeping us going. For you newer folks, I live in a very small town in
East Texas. Took a small property that is one of the original lots in
town that had gone to heck in a handbasket. Was a drug house before I
bought it. Despite black clay soil, very limited funds (got laid off 3
weeks after I bought the place) and having to haul hundreds of pounds of
broken beer bottles out of the back yard, it has slowly become a garden.
Nine years later the bird and butterfly sanctuary is thriving and the
place is now an asset to the community instead of a present danger.
Gardening is not just a hobby for me, it is a mission. I do all organic
and preach the word as I can since our reservior is less than a mile
away as the crow flies.

I think most of the really gabby ones go back to the AHS days and share 
a major "Thank You" to Chris Lindsey for coming to our rescue. It's 
kind of amazing that we've pretty much hung together for that long, 
creating a free-wheeling community [that I'm sure gave AHS the 
collywobbles]. What I don't remember was how I got to AHS in the first 
place. Wasn't a member then. Guess they left the door open and I 
wandered in.
