Today was a pretty quiet day…for Dennis. That’s because I wasn’t around..I went shopping at 9AM and didn’t return until 2PM….I left Den home, guarding the computer by having a marathon day of “surfing the net”, reading RV forums, and playing some serious Spider Solitaire. He wouldn’t say it, but I think he secretly likes it when I “disappear” for a few hours…Wait just a minute..He TELLS me he just sits in front of the computer…How do I know he isn’t bringing in the “dancing girls”, busting out the disco music and “getting down”???
Where do you suppose I was when I took the next picture?? Clue: I was behind the wheel of the GMC, getting some money. No, I wasn’t holding up a bank….but……
……Would you believe I was at the drive up window of our bank??? Yep, our branch bank is surrounded by a cornfield. Ya just gotta love rural Americana!! I like this drive-up because it’s much higher than the others, made for big rough and tough trucks.. and it is easier for short me to reach the little canister thing . Even at this window , I have to open the door and hang half way out of it to reach that stupid tube money holder! I try to get as close as possible when I pull up, and I imagine myself ripping out the entire drive up if I turn too sharp when I pull away. That would be just my luck.
I think this little bird is an Indigo Bunting, unusual for our area…and…Do you think we have enough firewood??? FYI, there is another stack behind that one by the bricks…and just as big.
I must apologize to our followers for not being very demonstrative of how very much I appreciate all of you staying with me. I am also lax in doing a shout out to you all. Today is one of those days when my imagination is flat as a pancake. Right now our life is about as exciting as watching paint dry. As promised, here is an update on the progress of the train car restaurant.
They have begun digging underneath the train, uncovering an old brick foundation. Dennis says he thinks they will pour a new cement one . Also, not the concret steps and front door are now gone. I think the main entrance will be around the front of the train car, where the bar entrance was when it was Kelly’s Bar and Grill. I can’t wait for this place to be restored!!
I think I told you I spent most of my teenage years living in a cemetery. (This could account for my very strange sense of humor.) Well, I took a bike ride out there a few days ago and got some pictures . I want to organize and post them in the near future… I have some old photos that I scanned to show what it used to look like when I lived there. As for today…I am spent, boring, HOT….and in need of a tall, cool one….No, I didn’t mean Dennis, although he IS both of those things….I promise I will try to be more creative in the future….I am not sure what the definition of a “blue funk” is …But I think I am caught up in one….
Here is a shout out to our loyal and fearless followers….The Bayfield Bunch, John Souva Jr., Mark & Teri, Kenny & Angela, Bob Nilsen, Sam and Donna, Maryann & William, Jerry & Suzy, Rick, Nellie & Jonathan, Rick & Paulette, The Warners, Margie M., Marion Parker, Eileen Fitzpatrick, Susan Bidniak, and our newest brave souls, Happy Trails, FD5, and Hembree..If I left anyone out….chalk it up to dementia.
If you read this to the bottom, you are probably in need of a tall, cool one too!!!
THANKS ALSO FOR ALL OF YOUR KIND WORDS REGARDING THE TRAGIC PASSING OF SARA JANE…YOU ALL TOUCHED MY HEART….
