Farm equipment

We had a lovely visit with our granddaughter and their parents this weekend.  Things were a little up in the air (almost literally) on Friday night.  M had to make a quick trip to Philadelphia on Thursday and Friday.  Storms moved in on Friday afternoon, both here and in Philly, delaying his flight about 3 hours.  Not so bad in the grand scheme of things, but I worried about him arriving here before the next line of storms.  His plane landed just a few minutes before the storms.

We went to the Portage County Randolph Fair yesterday.  It’s become something of a tradition for us.  The Exquisite Emma seems to enjoy it, especially looking at (and in some cases, petting) the animals.  Neither M nor I entered anything this year.  I had given some thought to entering a photo but couldn’t find one that suited me, and there was so much going on this summer that I didn’t really take the time to look.

I think things should settle down for a little while for us.  I want to take a trip east to visit with my parents but I’m not sure when I’ll do that.  Sometime in the next month, I hope.

It’s chilly here in the Bogs.  It’s windy and cloudy, with a distinct, almost sharp, autumnal feel to it.  I almost expect to see the leaves changing color whenever I look out the window.  It feels like endings lately…

    Your masthead photo is creepin’ me out, LOL. You crack me up. Orton effect for the toes, indeed.

    Looks like the exquisite grandkiddy had a pretty good weekend.

      What’s wrong with a little Orton effect for the feet? lol! I like it. Sorry it creeps you out. Does it help to know my feet were relaxing alongside a mountain creek and enjoying the weather, the peace, and the beauty of the place?

    I like this with the lovely little girl’s hair blowing in the wind and the sepia looking effect. A beautiful granddaughter. 🙂
