(53) HHS Classmates & When We Were Young Playlist Fav

After attending and enjoying my 40th high school reunion last fall, and seeing and renewing old friendships (picture below), this is a song that quickly hit a chord in the “Favs Playlist”…. Let me photograph you in this light In case it is the last time That we might be exactly like we were Before we realized We were sad of getting old It made us restless Oh, I’m so mad I’m getting old It makes me reckless It was just like a movie It was just like a song When we were young Advertisements Continue reading (53) HHS Classmates & When We Were Young Playlist Fav

The Chilly Daily Cap(s) (34)

The On The Farm Daily Cap(s) (325)

The Swallows love the mangled barbed wire in the trailer, except when I get too close… For all things grains, crops, seeds, and harvest, the COOP has been the farmer’s go-to place throughout the Great Plains for decades, as this old truck would surely tell if asked…. With the first frost having already come knocking and winter bears down (despite being 72 degrees today), the remnants of a Kansas sunflower stubbornly continues it survival vigilance against the inevitable… Jerry versus the standing-dead Cottonwood (Jerry won, but not without a fight)…. On the High Plains if a tree wants to grow … Continue reading The On The Farm Daily Cap(s) (325)
