Friday, March 8

Look what I found online, here

If you click to enlarge, you can see more detail.

When you enlarge this, you can see the orange machine just above the road in the upper left corner.  But, look at that gray spot above the orange machine and see the orange spot at the upper left of the gray?  Know what that is?  That is George burning a brush pile.

Here is a larger view where you can see the entire Rock Quarry and the creek. 

And here is the pond with George's rows of hay in the field and the dogwood tree in bloom.  

George remembered it was in the spring of 2011 that he had the hay here, so I went looking for pictures. This is a picture of the dogwood in the corner by Clayton's with the hay between me and the dogwood.  The same scene as the picture right above it, except from a slightly different angle, as in looking from ground level.  This picture was taken on April 10, 2011. 

Another picture from April 11, 2011 from down along the fence between us and Dan's.   If you enlarge it you can see the rows of hay in the field. During this time, we were working on cleaning up the graveyard on Dan's.

This picture was taken on April 22, 2011 and the rows of hay are gone. So these were taken in the first part of April 2011.

Thursday, March 7, The Bible says

Let the dead bury the dead, but, I don't think Aunt Helen buried herself.  She was buried where her husband chose to bury her in the manner he chose to bury her and the wording on her grave stone were his words.

Today is a beautiful day.  Saturday, George is taking the big billy goat back to the hills.  We have had him penned up for about 2 weeks now.

It is supposed to be really nice tomorrow and Saturday.  I plan on enjoying the spring weather.

Sunday Morning

Coming up.

Sunday, March 3rd

Kids playing on the pondbank yesterday.  Robert decided to roll down the muddy bank and Grandma yelled at him to not do that.

He came up to to the house looking like this, but very disappointed to have to leave the fun.  I told him he could go back, since he was already covered in mud. 

He went right back and rolled in the mud.  I do not know why kids do that.  I would never play in that red clay and get my clothes all covered in red clay mud.
