Is a "hard black Arkansas" a sharpening stone?

Yes. I think it's one of the best natural sharpening stones.

What a beautiful challenge to have. She will only be 13 for a year! My kids are 31 and almost 26. It seems like just yesterday we were going in for school pictures...

I just finished talking to my granddaughter. Her father's family gave her a hard time today. They weren't happy with what she planned for her father's funeral today. Of course they didn't contribute one cent to it. She emptied her savings account to pay for everything. The casket cost her extra. Her father weighed 420 pounds.

They are ungrateful wretches who have no say in the matter and she should tell them so. I'm sorry she had to deal with that.

Oh, Addie, that's so wrong.

I told her if anyone of them has anything else to say just ask them, "How much do you contribute to his funeral?"

I had her aunt in Girl Scouts many, many moons ago. She was a problem then and she hasn't changed.
