Pauline HyltonOur cell phones stopped working about half way up the mountain. Siri was speechless. After a few wrong turns, we pulled up to a driveway. 

A man with white hair opened an iron gate while three happy farm dogs followed our car until we stopped.

Tom and I assumed we were safe and ventured out to great tail-wagging. 

“You must be Kelly’s new friends. My name is Mike. Glad to have you.”

Who knew that at the 30-year-celebration for our pastor in Clearwater, Florida, we’d meet a farmer’s wife who lived about 45 minutes from our North Carolina property?

The Lord has a way of doing that.

Pauline, I would be scared too with such a drastic lifestyle change. From ocean fishing to land tilling is about as opposite as you can get. One thing in common with both is hard work. Depending on how much you plan on putting into production and how many animals you desire will determine just how much work it will require. There will be some good times and some bad times just like I expect there were in ocean fishing business. All the best with your move. Have a great moving day.
