Editor's Note: Today's header "Part Way Up the Mountain" really is reflects my week ahead. Right dab in the middle of back-to-school and possibly changing schools at the same time so all drama here at the Home Farm. Ergo no time to find illustrations or conjure up deeper meanings to a young man's words especially when it is a day of facts that can't be broken down anyway. The most curious thing about today is "Cousin George Phipps"--that is not a name I have come across yet.
