“You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich...strengthen the weak by weakening the strong...bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift...lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down...build character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and independence...help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves." -Abraham Lincoln
Please take a few minutes to visit with two of the shops from the Dirtroad Team. The first shop is Dixie Dreams, where Robin lives on the island of Kodiak in Alaska. Robin a Army Veteran and her husband fell in love with the island when they first laid eyes on it. Always carrying a camera, she never runs out of pictures to take, thanks to the wonderful wild live around her. Robin photos Eagles, whales, bears and flower. Plus she has some amazing pictures of the Northern Lights and some clouds. If you need to take a quick trip this is the shop to visit. I would love to visit Alaska, but her shop will have to do in the mean time. Someday I will make this trip.
The next shop Montezumamudd and is in Mancos, Colorado. Phyllis the owner and one of our team leaders and love to play with clay. Each piece of pottery is made by hand. Using simple forms they make for great everyday use. The decals that Phyllis uses are from her sister Connie who hand draws them for Phyllis to use. You will find casserole dishes, pie plates, mugs, crocks and more. From a soft green to burnt clay brown and most with two colors of glaze. You will find a wonderful piece or two of pottery for your home.

There hasn't been much said about the military mom. Yet no wars could ever have been won without her! A military mom is a teacher of independence, perserverance, discipline and integrity, possesses a great sense of humor and can make of any house, a home. She is a woman of quiet strength who has shaped the hearts of our Bravest Heroes and taught them to value peace above all else. The military mom is unshakable in love for her country. That is how she is able to let go of her most precious treasure. A son or daughter. We proudly salute and thank the "Military Mom".
