Little Ma gave us this windmill several years ago. It has stood up through a lot - - - even the straight-line wind storm June 30, 2014. I wonder just how fast it was turning during that storm. Probably like the propeller on a plane!
I use it to judge how windy it is out back. If it is turning at all, I know that I can't burn trash in the burn barrel just left of the tree. (You can tell we live in the country, when you hear someone talking about burning in a steel barrel).
Living in the country also makes it convenient to toss your vegetable scraps and such. I have a small grove of trees that I conveniently put this kind of stuff. It's biodegradable, People, so it helps the environment. Sister Sandy and I were recently talking about her new garbage disposal, and I asked her why she needed it. I never had one and it was never a problem for me. Then I realized that I had a place to dump my stuff rather than send it to the county dump in my garage bags. She doesn't have any place to toss stuff, since she lives in a city. My bad.
Last weekend we had a wonderful evening celebrating great-niece Kersten's high school graduation. Everything looked great at Nina's home and the food was the best! And seeing some of our family members again was cool.
BREAKING NEWS: Our Alec has insisted on wearing red Nike shoes for the last. . . oh, nine years or so.
Remember, his signature color has always been red. Red shirts, red shoes, red shorts
and even underwear.
Well, last week Jenna took him shopping for new tennies. She asked him what kind of
shoes he wanted, thinking he would give the same old answer of red Nikes.
BUT he said he wanted some black shoes!
Well, Folks, we have had a major, huge, crazy-big breakthrough.
Jenna was so excited that she told him to choose whatever
kind he wanted and he picked out some that were kinda like boat shoes, like Van shoes- - - in black. And they look great on him. Now, if we can just get him to wear a shirt in some
other colored shirt besides red. Anyway, life is good.
NOTE: Brother-in-law Larry got his gallbladder ripped out yesterday. Unfortunately, now the doctor thinks that
his stomach pain is the result of something else! Ouch! Bummer!
GOD BLESS YOU ALL
