The runt did not survive. Sunday, I was still hoping. Monday, I started to face the facts. Tuesday, reality. So, there is that. Just make the coffee and carry on.
Monday, I had the opportunity to speak at our local Rotary meeting. They are a welcoming, nice, intelligent, fun & funny, kind group of good people from our community. You all were there with me in a way, as I spoke about blogging. I was able to brag on my blogging friends and what a neat community it is. We were able to bring up my blog on the big screen television and take a stroll through the front and back pages of justmakethecoffee. Thank you fellow bloggers and followers/readers for being part of this blog! Thank you Jerry for asking me to speak.
Yesterday, after a morning of errands, picking up feed (which I still need to unload – thank you for reminding me) and taking our mower to John Deere, I asked my mom if she wanted to ride along for a drive to scenic, historic, Williamsburg Hill. My parents farmed just west of there for my entire lifetime … and much of theirs. Ridge Cemetery at the top of Williamsburg Hill is touted as one of the most haunted places in Illinois. Nothing creepy happened during our visit, though. I took a few photos, but none were great. Maybe the ghosts interfered with my camera. The colors were so much more vivid than the pictures show.
I hope you get to take a little side/road trip in your near future.
