Today is the shortest day of the year AND the longest night of the year. Everything forward from this time brings us longer and longer days (and colder and colder temps, until March, that is.)
My we were young! Terry was 23 and I 18.
Our elderly hands tell a story of their own (Terry is 72 and I am 67)…work worn and (in my case—full of age spots), but after living life on a daily basis, I guess it is to be expected.
We were both farm kids.
And we raised our kids on this very farm. Over the years we milked cows, raised spring’n heifers, kept cows on the farm for weed control
We also had rabbits, sheep, goats, a horse or two, cats, dogs and chickens.
We still farm, although not with as many animals.
49 years…next year 50! What a wonderful thing it is!
