Frustrations first–because I need to complain, since it has been irritating, and because once I tell you I’m not saying it again. (I hope)
Our internet has been down!!! I’m way, way, way behind on answering all your great comments, visiting your blogs and my emails since my request to know what type of bird I have visiting our sugar water feeders. I’ve called Skybeam and they just keep telling me it’s the tower. Okay…I wait.
Right at this moment I’m able to get on…I’m typing fast, just in case I lose connection. 🙂
We had a wonderful visit from Elaine and Bob Kenny….very long-time blog readers on Friday. They were heading over from the Front Range–Eastern Slope—of Colorado and stopped by.
Linkin was hanging out at the house when they came so she stayed for dinner with all of us. At some point in the table conversation it came up that Linky loves archery. Bob’s face just beamed at her; why he does too. In fact he was a State Champion in Archery and set to go to the Olympics when the dire need to ‘go to work’ set in and he never got to go.
As soon as we were through eating, even before I did the dishes…dishes can always wait…Linkin and I jumped into the pick-up and drove down to her house and got her two bows and quiver of arrows.
The rest of the evening was a fun filled archery experience. Something Linkin would not have gotten if Mr. Bob and Elaine had not come to visit!
Gradually, the light started to fade.
Elaine and Bob got into their really cool, go-fast car, waved good-bye and headed off to Montrose, Colorado.
What a neat experience for Linkin, Terry and I!
Elaine wrote today saying it rained all the way back and was cool in the forest they call home.
Here is a rainbow she sent me two weeks ago when she was out for a walk. Giant Pines and a gift of hope and love in the sky.
Don’t forget if you would have a great photo of a rainbow (or anything else) I would love to publish here on my blog. I will always, always, always give you credit!
I hope my internet stays and I can get back into my routine of visiting each of you!
