Who or What is She?

  • She calls herself Lauren but is also known as Mom, Gramma, Lar, and, once upon a time, Peach.
    An ex-suburbanite who moved to the wilds of the Sonoran Desert and decided to raise fiber animals, fowl creatures, 3 halflings, and one pint-sized farmer without a clue as to how. Join Lauren as she learns how to file alpaca teeth, shear a horny goat, raise 3 teenagers and 1 grandchild while cooking dinner and doing the laundry with her other six arms.

I'm glad to hear everyone is safe. Good luck cleaning up.


I am so glad that you guys are alright. I am so sorry about the horrible mess. Please take care of your self and know you are in my thoughts.


Oh Lauren, what a nightmare! I know you will all get through this, you're made of tough stuff, but the time and expense are to be dreaded for sure.


And to think I grumbled about our getting flood insurance last year. Grumble no more will I. Thinking of you. We just moved our big 40 foot container back by our 404 wash which I gather that is what yours is. Hope we don't see it washing down the wash! I know you will get this done. I think you ought to write Erma Bombeck type columns. You are a great writer and this is everyday stuff that others like your descriptions. Giant hugs to you and your whole family!


PS That black sand is often gold. That is what miners look for and follow back up the wash to find gold.

I hope Julie's right, and you find gold in all the mud--literally or figuratively. It makes me a little queasy just looking at the pictures. Hang in there.
