We Got a Marvelous Treat—Sunday, November 20, 2022

Our car club needed some special photos for the upcoming year of 2023

—100 years of

fun, exciting,

things in the City of Delta.

Well, Tom Howe,

has a 1923 Model T Ford,

he was gracious to say

(notice the missing letters—sigh)

we could take photos

of the cool car

for the 2023 Car Show

this coming summer. 

AND he would be willing

to have his car toured

around town

to feature special old and historic buildings on Main street.

There are three petals….

Lots of levers

And only three doors

The whole experience was

A huge blast!

People honked and waved at us

Drove next to us with big smiles

And thumbs up!

They graciously

Let us block the road

And stop traffic

While I got a large variety of photos!

What a huge!


And delightful adventure!

Thank you so much, Mr. Howe!!  Your car is stunning!

The Adventures of Boo Berry Betty and TLC Cai-Cai on Friday—-Teasing the Dog, Friday, November 18, 2022

I know!

I know!

The dog is still learning

How to be a



As you well know

I am bigger


And I even weigh


Which means



Just for fun…

I LOVE to tease the dog!

Like  When on a walk

Show her something  Unique

Like the water tube

I run to the tube

Look in the tube


The dog comes over

Looks into the tube

I encourage the dog

To go INTO the tube

She does!

Gullible, you know

Then she comes out

And asked me:

“What was so neat about that?”

“Nothing,” I reply.  “Nothing.”

The Leaves and I, Playing in the Wind —- Wednesday, November 16, 2022

It is just a tiny thing—the blowing of the leaves from the trees and bushes

But—standing in the middle of the falling, dancing, blowing leaves

It feels immense. And marvelous! and Oh, so wonderful!

Just me, the earth, the wind, and crisp dancing leaves.

From my heart to your world,


It’s Stopped Being Fall —- Monday, November 14, 2022

“One golden day redeems a weary year.”–Celia Thaxter 

Although, the light is still on the pink side

As the sun starts to set

And the calendar still says it is November

The air has said we have stopped having Autumn, and now moving closer and closer

To winter!

God Brought Us the Gift of COLD —- Sunday, November 13, 2022

A gift of a frozen world

With crunchy grass to walk upon

Even crunchy air

Call frozen fog

So very, very pretty

And then it warmed up enough to melt. 🙂

The Adventures of Boo Berry Betty and TLC Cai-Cai on Friday—-Farm Work, November 11, 2022

This is me!  The new way of being ME!


No longer am I afraid out on the farm.

If Mom goes out on the farm

I go out on the farm

Once on the farm, Mom puts me on the ground and I sniff around all over the place. But I always, always, keep myself close to Mom!  ALWAYS!

If we don’t go on the four-wheeler,

Then we walk.


Although I don’t want to walk the whole farm, it’s too big and

I would get tired




That’s Me!

Putting the Farm to Bed —- Thursday, November 10, 2022

Off Terry, Boo Berry, and I went to put the farm to bed. By that I mean, we picked up all the siphon tubes and blocked up all the pipes so skunks and ‘others’ can’t get in over the winter and make nice little nests.  Those little nests become a huge problem when we start water…

Always a big amount of work, four alfalfa fields, and the corn field.  Boo Berry loves running around on the ditch bank, sniffing at all the great smells.  She will even jump into the ditch, now that water is gone.

She was tired when we got in also. 🙂

A good feeling.  But, boy, was I ever tired when we got in.
