‎(1965) Blues by Big Mama Thornton - Hound Dog and Down Home Shakedown

Oh...my.


Had some Brave...Folks, stop by the Rabbit Hole, yesterday.
It was Soooooo Hot!!

Didn't have a Soul...pop in, until the early afternoon.
So...I kept working on projects, have Plenty to do.
Figured it was going to be quiet...all day, and...around 2, I was nearly melted.
; )
So...decided to lay down on the concrete park bench, next to the Fountain...under the Wonderful Shade, the Wild...Cherry Tree so Kindly Offers.
; )
Nice...Breeze, blowin'.
: )
Delta...Blues, in my ear, from the little Bose, beside my head.
<3

As I was gazing....at the Beautiful Sky...through the Wild Cherry's Beautiful Branches....
I hear a voice, say...
"So...is this how you 'Sell' your merchandise?"

Hahahahahahaha!!!
I, replied....
"On a Day...like Today, 'Indeed'...it is. "
: )

Busted!!! Layin' Down...on The Job!!!

It was Marla...{above} <3
She, and her Hubby, were so Sweet!
; )

It was Fun...visiting with them.
; )



Then...these Sweet Gals, stopped by.
They got the Biggest Kick out of The Simply Iowa Sow!!!
<3
They Braved The Rabbit Hole, too.
WOW!!
We were All...Sweatin' like Butchers!!!
Holy Smokes!!

I was Very Proud...of Everyone, who Braved The Heat, to Visit...yesterday.
<3

I'll be writing about The GREAT News...soon. 
; )

Love to Ya...
Prayers, for All.

After I pulled the 'Open'...Sign, down...
tonight...
sat by The Fountain.
: )
Listened to Cajun Music.
<3
It was so...Hot, today...
reminded me of New Orleans.
I've only been there, once...
It Reminded me of IOWA...in August.
<3 <3 <3 
Priceless.
<3
: )

Love to Ya...
Prayers, for All.

The Beatles - Let It Be (Official Music Video)

Peace.


Love the above...quote.
It popped up, on my FB Memories, today, along with the Beautiful Angels, below.
<3
{Love... 'Rantings of a Beautiful Mind'...on FB.}



The 'Weeping Mary'...Statue...is here, at the Rabbit Hole.
Has, been for a long time.
She's a Keeper.
<3
Purchased 'Mary'...from Dear... Neighbor, Randy, who owned Ornamental Concrete.
'Mary'... had laid out back...of his business, for years.
She was in the weeds, when I found her, just before Randy closed his business.

When I saw her Beautiful...Face, oh my.
Knew...She, had a Home...with us.
<3
The years of exposure to the elements.
<3
Iowa, has such a Way...of Dishing Out, Extremes...with Every Season, 
and made Mary's face...weep.

A few weeks ago...some Folks were walking with me...around the Rabbit Hole.
When IDOT came through, had to move Mary...along with So Much More.
Shoved everything...including 'Mary'...into a corner, behind the Rabbit Hole.

The Folks...Froze, when they saw Mary.
One Woman....ran her hands, over Mary's Beautiful...Soulful...face, and said...
"She's Crying.... : ( "
I, just stood there...and, said...
"Yes...she is. That's why she's here, and always will be. <3 
Mary...speaks volumes, without sayin' a word."

I...haven't found The Perfect Place, for Mary....again, with what's left, here.
She...Deserves...a Prominent Place....
again.
<3

Had another melt down...last night.
oh my.

I've always been 'The Fixer'...for everyone...throughout my life.
These last few years, have been beyond...frustrating.
So Much...is out of my hands.
For an old...Stubborn, Taurus the Bull...
who could Always...take on a situation, and Move It, well...
these last few years, have made me...weep, too.
{and.... like any Old Taurus, feel a lot of Rage, when the Red Flags...of Betrayal...are being waved in front of my nose, repeatedly.}

I've heard it, many times...from many, Folks...over the last few years, but...when, Warrior Gail, said it...to me again, the other day...
it hit Home.

"Barb...you deserve 'Peace'."
<3
Gail, went on...and said... "It will come."
<3
I Believe Her.
<3

I so feel, inadaquate...because...I don't know how to Fight, liars.
Whenever...throughout, my life...I was up against liars, I...simply, walked away from them.
Trust...is Everything, to me.
so...
never gave those who betrayed me, a second chance.
Game Over.

I, can't walk away...from this Fight.
I, don't know how to 'Fix'...it, either.

People tell me to Hand It Over...to The Lord.
Let Go.

My thought's on that...
God...gave me a Brain, He expects me to Use It.
I...just, can't find the way.
It's like trying to rope the wind.

Just got off of the phone, with Son, Justin.
<3
Told him...to keep forging ahead.
Keep...taking The High Road.
<3
; )
and...
'This, Too...Shall Pass.'
; )
<3

Words...of wisdom, that...I, too...have heard, over...and over, the last few years.

'Life'...
what a
Ride.

Love to Ya...
Prayers, for All.

{Pal, Ed...used to tell me, "It's all about The Journey, Barb."
; )
Indeed. }

May God Bless...
Us...
All.
