Life...is a Highway!

On the Road...again...
Jumped in the FUSO...Cranked up the Tunes.... and Drove...
It was a Cold...and rainy day....a perfect day...to make deliveries...and pickups...
The Massive Church Alter...and Windows....along with the 10, or 12 foot table...went to a Lovely Girl... and it was great seeing my friends...from far...Eastern Iowa!
Then....had a couple more stops...one...was Charlie...
It's been too long between visits...
I had been meaning to get to his place...for months... but... it never seemed to work out...
I needed to pick up a load of tin panels...about 60 of them....in 8, 10 and 12 foot lengths... for our barn.... I'm so glad that job is done....
He had some great Ironstone... and a darling little cupboard.... all sorts of Gnarly little treasures....but...my favorite ones... were the Birds Nests...he had saved for me.... and...now, he even has his friends...searching for them....
Charlie handed me a box....that a Farmer friend of his had given him, for me.... While the Farmer was mowing hay.... he spied them...and thought of me.... How Sweet Is That!!! He had to stop his tractor...and gather them.... That Touched me...so.... I couldn't have loved them more...if they were a dozen Roses....
Charlie thought they were from Red Wing Black Birds.... They build their nests....near the ground... oh my...
I went on and on....what a Gift....
Peg will know what kind of bird...created them... They are Amazing!
I told Charlie...I have to give one to Peg...she doesn't have one like THAT!!!!
Charlie had saved several for me...with moss in them....as well....
That Charlie....what a Sweet Man!
We had a meeting with a little snake....while loading the tin....and I heard the baby raccoons... scurrying around...in the barn.... saved a few spiders...as we invaded their homes...
{I had a feeling...there were several snakes....around...as I walked through the tall grass...searching for treasures.... before we saw  the baby.... sometimes... one...just gets a feeling....and...step...lightly... }
Springtime...in Rural Iowa....
I didn't get home...'til late...last night...
The FUSO, is still loaded...
don't know...when I'll get to that...
I'm tired...this morn...Thankful...for the coffee...Tommie, from "FUEL", brought out...last week...
I have to get back on house work...with the Alter gone... everything...needs a shuffle...
and...a LOT of Cleaning!!!
It was a Lovely Day...
Hope Yours was...as Well!
Love to Ya...

Love...Iowa....
Beautiful...
It was like the windows..in the FUSO...Framed...Amazing Artwork...all day Long!
Saw a Garage Sale Sign...as I was between stops.... {The FUSO is no better at passing them...than the Ford... : ) } and found this Amazing Victorian Scrap Book! It was Filled with loose... Trade Cards...as well... Love It! and a hog feeder....and a couple of Lightning Rods! a Great Stop...and such nice Folk...as well... I Love Rural Folk!
Love this Darling...Old Ornament...Charlie had...he rode safely home...in the Gnarly Nest!
LOVE THE BIRDS NESTS!!!!

You do find the greatest treasures. If the 2 platters aren't sold (the ones behind the nest) how much are they? Know it's a hassle to ship but love them. You can email me at wellsjm70@sbcglobal.net. Thanks & have a good weekend.
