One week ago I joined these folks on a short hike. It was her birthday. I'm so happy I got to see them. Two of my very favorite people. I was with them for his birthday in February too. This one was a bit quieter.
North Carolina morning on Rt 98 between Wake Forest and Durham.
Georgia morning on I-75 way north of Atlanta.
This morning at home. A large branch fell off one of the black cherry trees while I was gone. A neighbor will remove it and use it for firewood eventually. One of these days, a tree or part of one will probably fall on the house tho I pray not. The trees are very tall and the house is very small.
This is Smokey. He has quite a history including wandering in and adopting the people who live in that house. He was lost after a vacation and sorely grieved but eventually reappeared surviving but in poor shape. They think a neighbor tried to get rid of him without actually killing him.
He has the most earnest face.
He has trained his family to brush him every night.
Then he settles to relax with TV.
Smokey is a rather large feline who likes to read the paper in the morning.
Susan and Lisa invited me to join them for pizza and Team Trivia at the Blue Moon Cafe in Marietta, GA. The pizza was excellent. The people are wonderful and fun. The trivia went from simple to Huh? This team won last week and had a 50 gift certificate to spend. Made the evening even better. Now they have another one. I didn't contribute much but the others have excellent memories for useless stuff. Thanks for including me.
These are squashes. The spot on one is my iPhone. They are huge.
The one they have cut up and used weighed 33 pounds.
And there are more.
And more coming.
And there are even more around the front of the house plus some vines that grew out back as well. They rarely get a frost here. They may have squash all year? And we thought zucchini was prolific. Perhaps someday the squash will overwhelm the fountain?
For Margaret and Joel who are true disciples ministering to the people on the poorest Native American reservation in the US. And especially for Margaret who has more funerals in a month than most priests have in several years. And thanks for allowing the children to call her Grandma. She is the best possible person/priest in her position. For Peg and Jim. For all those who believe that guns can solve our problems. For our dysfunctional Congress. For Christ Church Meadville. For R and D especially for R. For me. For Ward. For Bro John. For Jim, especially. For those in the church who are distressed. For A as she deals with dysfunction. For Ginny. For Amelia. For Julie Anne. For Danny. For Amy. For J's mom. For Art and Mary. For rain in California. For Jeri. For Caleb and those who research RA. For J and D. For Tim and Ruth. For Ted. For VC and N. For Lee. For S and P.
