The...Lucky One....

Is This Heaven?

It's Iowa...
: )
{you...must click on this image... to enlarge it... oh my....

It was...Hot...
but... the Beautiful... Breeze...
made...Everything...
o.k.
Yes...
This is...
Heaven... : ) }
I am....
The Lucky One...
I thought that... over and over...
yesterday...
after being so stunned.... about James Gandolfini's Passing...
It was Hot... and Sultry...
I was wearing a Sundress and leggings....
dripping...in sweat....
The air...in the Ford...needs a charge...
tho...I don't like using it...when I have to jump out...and work...in the heat....
the dirt... from the Gravel Roads... and Barn....
stuck to me... like glue....
I found...Straw...in my hair...this morn.... as I attempted to brush through the
 gnarliness....
I was a mess...when the Ford and I...rolled in.... last night....
and tired...
: )
but...
Lucky...
so very... Blessed....
to have had this day...
overlooking... the Beautiful Iowa....
Countryside...
Visiting... with...Long Time...
Friends...
and... of course....
bringing Home...
a Mighty Fine...Load...
of Old Farm Primitives...
: )
It is... actually...as I stand back... and look at it.... a very Diverse Load...
Everything... from a Grinding Stone.... to Victorian Iced Tea Spoons!
Musical Instruments...and Chicken Nests!
oh my...
a Fun... Load...
a Crazy... Load...

load.....

"You're Blessed I Guess...by Never Knowin' Which Road Your Choosin'...
to you...
The Next Best Thing to Playin' and Winnin'...
is Playin' and Losin'...."
: )
This always...reminded me...of My Dad...
as I stood..on the Hilltop...
yesterday...
I realized....
I too...
am... so...very...
'Lucky'.... }

Oh my goodness Barb-you can't sell the megaphone we need it when we try and locate you at the sales on Labor and Memorial Day. I told everyone at the Memorial Day sale that I'd be lookin for one cuz trying to track you down was too hard and with a megaphone my voice would carry so much further. lol
