No, I haven't fallen off the face of the earth, although it sometimes seems like it because I keep disappearing from blogland for long periods at a time. A couple of readers know why I wasn't on last week because I e-mailed you. So far, everything is much better. Chuck quit drinking and knows that the next beer he touches, he's out of here! Most people think I'm crazy to take him back, but I love him and want this marriage to work. I'm not in this marriage to make other people happy.
The picture above is going into a little town in Jay County, east of Blackford County. My husband got the biggest kick out of it the first time we drove to Indiana from Florida. Our last name is the name of a small Indiana town. Even when I stop at the convenience store there, they get a laugh out of it being our last name.
This is our neighbor's house behind us. I saw this momma Robin flying up to her nest on Saturday. I got as close as I could without scaring her off her eggs. I felt so sorry for her Sunday because it just poured rain all day and was quite chilly.
Still not a very good picture of a Blue Heron, but it's a little better that previous. This was much closer to home than where I was going before. I'm going to keep trying!
Lori and I went to Berne again Friday March 27. She goes there to buy grain for the horses. Much better prices there. On our way home, only about a minute from my house, we was this odd, funnel-shaped cloud ahead of us. I took this one after I got home and put my stuff in the house. It was just drifting northward. It looks like a tornado, but it wasn't(as far as I know) LOL
We saw a lot more Amish out and about that day.
An Amishman out plowing his field. I think he must have been a teenager, because he didn't have a beard.
On our way to Berne, we turned off on one of the side roads to hopefully get a scenic route to photograph. There was an old junkyard on the road we turned onto.
These buzzards were sitting on the roof of an old tool shed just before we got to the junkyard. Somehow, we went WAY out of the way. Neither one of us is any good at navigation if we've never been on those roads before. We ended up in Warren, which was the opposite direction from the way we originally turned. I got the brilliant idea to turn left on Jeff Road, because I wanted to see Five Points Schoolhouse and an old steel bridge near it. We were already past there when we made the turn. Oh well, we saw a lot of neat things, and now that we know where we went wrong, we'll go back on purpose to get more pictures. I finally found Five Points day before yesterday.
I am going to get off here and try to get some sleep. Everybody have a great week.
A Fine Summer Day. - Rainy bike Ride Well, Fine for Iowa I guess. It continues to be hot here. With a rather obnoxious humidity. It has been raining off and on today. ...
