Welcome!

I’m Victoria Twead, the silly old fool who wrote “Chickens, Mules and Two Old Fools”.

Thanks for popping in to my website!  I hope you’ll find your way around easily without tripping over chickens. There’s a place where you’ll find all my books (have I really written that many?) and a section for Your Questions which I’ll try to answer. If you have time to explore, there’s a Free Stuff section, recipes, and tons more including my blog, which I do my best to keep up to date.

I do hope you enjoy your visit.

P.S. I changed the photo to show off Lola, isn't she gorgeous? She forces me to leave the computer sometimes, which has to be good thing. Thanks, Lola!

If you’d like to find out how Joe and I are coping, day by day, do join me on Facebook. And if you’d like free books, recommendations, a recipe, and to know what's going on in our lives,  I’d love it if you signed up for my Old Fools' Updates. You can do that at the bottom of every page.
