We went to Kentucky for a church homecoming, and took some time to check out properties near Irvine that we saw on Zillow. Somehow our GPS got confused in the mountains, but we found the property I had my eye on purely by accident. It is everything that I want - a view, quiet, and a small house. The only problem is that we aren't ready to retire for anot her couple years, and can't afford two mortgages. I hope the LORD will keep it for us!

!!!Sorry about your daughter---hope she doesn't have covid-19. So scary. Trip is cute---I have raised many, many kittens and I am tooo old and tired to raise another one. But they are such fun---such good memories of my babies. I raised two two years ago. It was winter and they were horrible---tearing up the whole house. I swore never again---a lot of which because at my age a cat could outlive me. Anyway---enjoy.

Trip has discovered that it is fun to knock things off the sewing table.

Young Trip Hazard is visiting the vet today. If he's old enough he will have a life altering procedure.
On a more serious note, my daughter in FL had been home because a member of her office had COVID. Yesterday when she was dressing for work she got horrible stomach cramps. At the hospital they think its IBS but put her in the COVID ward just in case. Her dad is ready to fly down to help her, although he probably won't be able to see her.

Yes, I joke that I have Bluegrass in my blood.
That brings me to another thought: my blood type is B positive. Could that be why I'm an optimist?

Vanessa,
I love this image so much. Country roads are the best!

Keep shining!

After reading about the Quiet Park article in the latest issue of MJF, I consider the country road I walk to be the closest equivalent. This morning I walked into the fog, with birds and insects sounding. By the time I turned back toward home the sun was high enough to burn off the fog and show a clear blue sky. Few cars pass by, and sometimes I'm lucky to spot deer or rabbit.

Lucky day for the little kitten? Hmmm . . . I think it was a lucky day for you! Enjoy your new little kitty!!!

Here he is! And there's a change- he's staying with us.

It was a lucky day for this little kitten. I was walking along the road and heard his meows from the woods. He followed me home and I tentatively named him Trip Hazard because he wove back and forth in front of me. He's very vocal and got along with all the dogs (our cat Shrek was less than pleased). He's also very sweet tempered - I gave him 2 baths and he didn't bite or scratch! A friend of ours has an opening for a barn cat, so Trip will be going to his new home tomorrow.

(Sung to "I was strolling in the park one day")
I was walking with my doggie in July
When some pretty roadside sweet peas caught my eye,
Their pods were ripe and full
So a handful I did pull,
I will send them off to Farmgirls when they're dry.
It gets so hot during the day that I get up a little earlier to feed the birds and walk.

So in this world of the simple and odd,
The bent and plain, the unbalanced bod,
The imperfect people and differently pawed,
Some live without love... That's how they're flawed.

Today's excitement was the appearance of a chicken. Both Oskar and Tona chased it, so Jeff and I caught and re-homed it ( our neighbors weren't home, but they have chickens already and the chicken seemed to like it there).

Although my birthday was July 6th, we celebrated my birthday at work on Tuesday (when we assemble the newspaper). My boss orders lunch and we have cake. There are 4 of us in the office, so its chummy. I want to post the picture, but the Downloader is slow.

The parade was fun. I rode with a bunch of children and about 3 golf cars followed us. At first I asked folks sitting on their porches if they had a newspaper subscription, but soon I just tossed a newspaper toward them. Luckily I didn't crash or hit anyone. I still have plenty to send out with swaps.

Vanessa, oh how fun!! I love those days of the paper routes ! I had a crush on our paper boy in the 1960's.

I am pursuing my happiness today by rolling and tying newspapers for the bike parade tomorrow. I am representing The Bracken County News and throwing newspapers. My boss thinks I'm a little nuts but is going along with the idea.
