...let's just make believe

Hold your breath and close your eyes,
Squeeze all the magic from inside.
Step through the circle that time defies,
And journey into wonderous skies.

It's time to dance, it's time to sing,
Enjoy the peace that fairies bring.
See their world through eyes of wonder,
And on their beauty you may ponder.

Go deep within the wooded ground,
'tis there the secrets can be found.
Enjoy your journey, that begins right here.
Close your eyes, and have no fear.

Father's Day

Shelter Belt

While we were visiting Grandpa he told us a little bit about his childhood while growing up in Watertown,South Dakota. "It was a simple life, peaceful and we were free there. Used to play in the creek {crik}and catch fish, also on the outskirts of the shelterbelt {trees} that blocked the house from the winter blizzards. I would take my shotgun out and hunt for pheasant and duck,often down by the creek. Aside from just playing was alot of hard work,things kids don't see now days. We raised our own crops barley,wheat,corn whatever we needed to provide for our family.I used to have to stand at the corn bin and shuck all the corn with my brothers and sisters there were 9 of us children. My friends lived over a mile away,didn't bother me none work on the farm and my siblings were enough for me. We also raised geese and had a cow named Blonde...she was a long horned milking cow,but she was a mean old thing! Dad did all the slaughtering of the meat,never made us kids do it...pigs,chickens and cows. We lived in a three bedroom house Mom & Dad had a room, the girls had a room and us boy's shared the other room,we had to walk about a mile and a half to school and when it snowed the older boys would pull us on the sled. It was tough sometimes but, I wouldn't have it any other way...i just felt free"...

i just found this again... time flies and how fast they grow! I felt like I just made this the other day,yet it seems like so long ago.Oh dear Lord,how our time here together is so limited....Please,Please let me enjoy and savor as much as I possibly can.

i haven't forgotten about you...

I'm still working hard...i love you more than you can fathom..."please god" if you hear me,guide me in the right direction,I'm running out of time!

Ass Sliding...{it's a sibling thing}

I feel like were on "HellTrack" . This is one of the things that sticks in my mind when I think of our childhood. Ass-sliding with you was one of the funnest things,you were fun to explore with....well except for my poison Oak emergency room visit in certain areas!!
Hours of practicing.....I'm sooo sorry you shattered your whole foot into a hundred little pieces,you were an amazing rider! I think i was pretty good too....standing on the bike trophys like you,but I was great!.....too bad old age is kicking in.....hhhmmmm maybe I'll start bike riding with the kids?

The End of Spring...

When full-bellied summer came to supplant the sweet spring,
she left in silence, like a recluse,pulling the door closed behind her.
Before I could protest —before anyone could even notice
—she’d packed her things and tied up her hairfingers soft in the moonlight.
And then she turned and walked out into the brittle air of morning,
leaving behind only leaves drenched in dew,
and flowers strewn about my feet like a dropped handkerchief.
