Meet the Joneses
Let me introduce you to ‘the fam’:
Mandolin Jones – Relaxed and easy-going, balances my intensity well. We met as kids and have been married for over 30 years. Great sense of humor, an amazing cook, and a better musician than he realizes.
SaveTheWorld Jones – our youngest, now 20 and in college, raised as much by her older sibs as by us. Vegetarian, intense (like Mom) and ready to take on the world’s problems – and already is.
The M and M’s – our two oldest are married now. Mr. and Mrs. Jones, Jr. are my son and daughter-in-law, intelligent and also intense (hmmm). Mr. and Mrs. Jones-Ninja, my daughter (more easy-going like her Dad) and her husband; fun-loving and unique.
… and here he is! Our very first grandchild, and the new love of my life, Sprout.
Do I see posts on gardening with kids in the future? Oh yeah!
ManDog – our rescued great dane/lab mix puppy
Fat Cat with Attitude – our rescued fat cat, with attitude.
The Ladies – our chickens, rescued from being raised for meat, and our adventures in this new area of self-sufficiency:
Lucy the Lovely but Loud (Rhode Island Red)
Sassy (short for Sasquatch) the Fluffy (White Brama)
Robin the Little Hood (Black Americauna)
Cheese Wiz the Cozy (Americauna)
and The Chickie-poos: Eve, Evelina, Evette, Eada and Evonne supposedly Orpingtons, but according to this link Mark B. sent me, I don’t think so..
The Jones Jingle
The Jingle came about as part of collaboration with Yoga Journeys on a kids video.
Mandolin and I had a lot of fun making the video and writing the jingle.
I hope you like it! (Its now stuck in my head)
