I swear the older I get the faster time goes by…No wonder older people are diagnosed with dementia…their poor minds can’t keep up with the rate that time flies! In ten more years; if the Lord lets me live that long, I probably won’t even know who I am…much less anything else!
I had a visitor in my back yard this past Thursday and Friday….
This baby deer was so innocent, that when I spotted it behind my shed, I held out my hand to it and called it; “Here Baby…here Baby…” and it actually came up to me and rubbed it’s little head on my legs and let me pet it!!! I had been worrying about animals eating my tomatoes but, as soon as I felt it’s little head nuzzle against my legs, it held my heart right then…and could have eaten all my tomatoes!
Can you see my hand in the left-hand corner of the picture??? It stood there for a few minutes while I petted it…I saw it again this afternoon …running across my back yard. Now, I live right smack dab in town, only a couple of blocks from Broad street and the houses in my neighborhood are side by side, with many people coming and going most of the time. That baby deer came from a tiny field that is right behind my house.
Speaking of tomatoes…I had Dan go pick a couple of green ones and I fried them up for supper tonight, along with some pinto beans and homemade biscuits. They were sooooooooo good!
Here are two huge ones that were growing on the German Queen vine…No he didn’t pick those….I picked those Sunday. Matter of fact, here is one of them next to a regular size tomato…so you can see how huge it is!
Here are the latest pictures of Wyatt:
‘I am happiest shopping with mama and grandma!’
‘I was having such a good time!!’
‘One day last week, my grandma said that since I was such a good boy at the grocery store, she gave me a lollipop !!! My mama had a cow…but I loved , loved, loved it! lol lol’
‘Here I am eating with my grandma at Zaxby’s . I would dip each bite of French fry exactly three times in the ranch sauce! I ate 4 whole chicken strips too!!! Of course I shared my ranch sauce with grandma…all over grandma! lol’
‘Mommy and daddy took me to the park last week in Madison…this is my first ride in a real swing and I loved it!!! I even went down the slide!’
‘I have found out that I can get my toes into my mouth…so today, while grandma pushed me down the sidewalk in my little car, I alternated from one to the other!’
(Amanda didn’t get her sonogram done…they want to wait until she is twenty weeks… so she will go back August 12th to get it done. I can’t wait to find out what this one is! )
I will leave you with this thought….
Be good to those you love…hug them and kiss them and tell them how much they mean to you…how they have made your life better…and how much you love them…It doesn’t take up much of your time and you just never know if you will ever have that chance again.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
