220beedleKnocked off a twelve-hour day today on top of ten yesterday. That title I feel deeply. But after a shower and fresh clothes tonight and a loaded trailer (thanks to friends stopping by throughout the day) I’m nearly horizontal now and if you see something like “gjfndskslnflkzd2iwoegs” you’ll know I’ve drifted off to sleep.

My wife’s faith sharing group invited us all out to dinner tonight. I took a pass. Two friends helped me finish off the trailer after their work, and I really didn’t want to leave it till the morning. Nor lose time when I had two people to assist the home stretch.

Empty houses make me sad. A lot of family time and memories of it to leave behind. Above is an image I captured shortly before we moved in. The tree on the right split and fell in a storm a few years ago, leaving branches sprouting from the stump. I liked the look of leaves and branches right from the ground up rather than dig out a traumatized plant.

Monday morning: westward ho!

    Those of us out here in Drought Country are drooling lasciviously at your very GREEN front yard.

    Travel safely and know that you are heading for more regular rain than you thought possible.
