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 19 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!
Interesting fact: We had a baby in the 70′s, another in the 80′s and another in the 90′s. As the millennium approached, I took Mandolin to see a Doctor (wink*wink).
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)
Pertolote the Clever (White Leghorn)
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, 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)
