A Blast from our Past... and makes my heart sing and hurt at the same time...
Abby, Gertie, with Hannah resting on them, in the living room at the old place.
What wonderful little girls they were, along with our first pug, Addie Mae.
How we miss them!
Sedum gone by in the garden yesterday.
Bittersweet in the fence line yesterday. We never had any until last year...
and it came back despite a summer of neglect.
When I went to pick Keith up at dialysis yesterday, I took the back roads back to our house. We followed two combines for five miles.
Notice there is a ditch at either side of this road.
The few cars that passed us waited in driveways for the combines to get by, as they took up almost the whole road.
Guess who didn't pull over?
Just a minute before I took this picture, a full grain truck (corn) had been in the opposite lane. He didn't even slow down and there are no shoulders here.
This is a mile from our house.
Last night when Keith came home from work... he came upon a big grain truck on
it's side in the ditch to the left, or south, of this picture. There were two
fire trucks and the fire department chief there responding to the wreck, and
the road, we are sure, was eventually closed.
Remember I took the picture of the grain truck in my rear view mirror last week?
I can't tell you how many times they have whizzed by me in the last month.
Tornado siren test.
To this day, after almost three months... we have never heard Jester bark or howl.
He does whimper, when excited.
He whimpers every single time we go by this pasture daily.
The horses and cows get him all excited.
These are just about the last flowers to bloom after two hard frosts.
They are fading now.
In fact, the tiny little pink mum bush behind them was still blooming, too.
There is still some color, just not as much as last week and the week before.
Little Macey, about whom I wrote yesterday, must go back
again next Tuesday to the medical center for yet more tests.
Please keep her and her family in your prayers as they
wait to find out what is going on with her.
