Yesterday, Summer and I put a cooler with ice and drinks and a pizza in the trunk; we put the insect repellent in the front seat.  We headed up to Mother’s for a few hours and, as it worked out,  Summer was introduced to driving the Wheel Horse – the 12 horsepower one. I was […]

June 28th, 2009 · 1 Comment

Look! Out in Iowa, those dratted dandelions (which may or may not be helpful to weight loss and health) have enlisted the aid of the tomatoes. Although, they are green recruits, they are already having an effect . . . Our tomatoes have no blossoms yet.  Yes, we are jealous here in Indiana – so […]

June 24th, 2009 · 1 Comment

When I remember where I set the camera down, I will post a picture of what I saw yesterday at 6:20 in the morning. I saw it after I got in the car and started to back up and thought, “Why, I believe I have a flat tire.” Really. That’s what I thought. I did […]
