Welcome to Fern Valley

Here in central Alberta prime farm country,my husband Martin and I work together raising beef cattle and Appaloosa horses. Fern valley appaloosas have long been known for their quality of temperament conformation and color.I have recently rediscovered a love of writing and have published 2 collections of poetry. "Telling Tails" and Tails Trails and Campfire stories" . I look forward to a future spreading my wings as an author and as a horse woman .

I thought I had posted this

I am actually  planning to have a  yard/garage sale next  week , we have postponed a  couple of  times while I got  busy  doing other  things, and then of  course I had to clean  the  barn so I had a place  to set up. Hoping  for  next weekend. Get it all  gathered up  this weekend and ,the   we  will be  good to go .
I was  sure  I had  posted this  poem, but cannot  find it. Sorry if it is  a repeat.

The yard sale
Right time and right place
They will come on in droves
Looking for bargains
On treasure and clothes
Dishes and treasures
Not meant to be kept
Or old wooden cradles
Where dollies have slept
A huge rototiller rusted and old
But back in the day a garden it rolled
It still works fine
It just isn't pretty
But I don’t garden, there it is,
 what a pity
Spare saddles and bridles we don’t use anymore
We will give you a fine deal,
 way less than the store
No don’t you go thinking
These items are trash
They are somebodies treasures

And somebodies cash!

Stay  safe  friends
