Tangled in Clouds and Raindrops —- Thursday, May 30, 2019

We experienced a brisk wind all day yesterday,

Yet, at different points sunlight splashed between the foaming clouds

The slight sunrays pattering the sky and dappling the earth

We watched ragged rain  play along the mountainside

The wind was strong enough to tatter the trees; flinging leaves here there and everywhere

Then sometime overnight, the wind rose higher and higher in the atmosphere

Giving us the most beautiful sunrise and clear skies!

BUT before all that occurred…just there in the east, as the wind moaned and the clouds rushed away from us…I saw a Rainbow…a fat beginning of one anyway; before the clouds and wind pushed it away.

From my world to your heart,



The Cheering Rises Clear to the Sky—-Wednesday, May 30, 2018


We have been as busy as bumble bees the last two days.

I put an ad on Craig’s List, on Face Book on Colorado Hay and a few other spots on Face Book

Within minutes of the ads hitting the internet we had hay customers…this is all we have left as I type and it will be gone by noon.

They started lining up at at 7:30 this morning.  WHEW!

What a wonderful blessing to be able to sell our hay within two days!

Terry and I feel so very humble.

Life on a Colorado farm,




888,246 Ceramic Poppies—-Tuesday, May 30, 2017

These are all photos taken from the internet.

I just read the book: The Story of the Tower of London, by Tracy Borman; the joint Chief Curator of the Historic Royal Palaces (who has written many great books)

In this book she talked about the 888,246 ceramic poppies filling the moat surrounding the the Tower of London.  Each poppy represents the fallen military in England.

The tribute is so stunning (and heart breaking) I wanted each of you to see it.

Someday I would love to travel to England, but until there, there is the INTERNET!




I Humbly Thank You—-Monday, May 30, 2016


Memorial Day Flag tribute at the City of Delta Cemetery, Delta, Colorado.

We have so much!  So very much to be thankful for!

"And I'm proud to be an American,

Where at least I know I"m free,

And I won't forget the men who died,

Who gave that right to me."---Lee Greenwood, "Proud to Be an AMerican"

So very, very much!

To all of those who have served I humbly Thank you.
