DONE!—-Wednesday, September 12, 2018

By 10:13 a.m. the air was dry, the ground was dry, and the bean pods dry.  So we began again.

Gradually the day wore on.  A cool morning warming into a very hot afternoon. Still, we worked on, stopping only for a very fast lunch.  Then back to the field we went.

The day flew by, the loads in the hopper emptied, the truck went here and there and back again.

Then there it was…the last long trip, up the very steep incline

Final destination—-The Beanery!

Since there was only one truck in front of us, Terry stayed to unload and bring the truck back home. Boomer and I came back, we didn’t need to stay and take Terry home—nor did we need to come back later and pick up the truck

We were done!  That word brings much contentment—as well as the action Itself does!

Done!

The 2018 pinto bean harvest is finished.  The feeling cannot be bought at any price in any market in the world!

A Rainbow from Duluth–Sunday, September 12, 2015

Rainbow-from-MaryMary from Duluth, Minnesota (the tip of Lake Superior), saw this rainbow and thought of me.

I think I am one of the luckiest people alive to be sent such special gifts–rainbows from here, there and everywhere.  Thank you, Mary.

Now each of you can see this special present of love and hope!
