We've been back from Texas for a while and then gone again...briefly....and we are still kind of wondering where spring is...little has been done in the started today some...Farmer Marv didn't come in real happy as had gotten stuck several times and then he was nicely sitting in the chair reading the paper and phone call came....'I have a flat tire....on a tractor...on the road' off he goes to help with it goes.  For myself....started first crop 'hay'....but had to be bundled up the wind was cold!  (and I had problems, too...stuck once, twice twine wrapped around the blades...don't they ever learn they can't through that stuff in the grass where it is going to be mowed.)

We had a good season in Texas...down there a little longer than any other year.  Lots of privileges and fellowship.  Good to stop at my brothers in Missouri on the way home.  Saw most of his family and our other niece that also lives there.   Got in on some snow after getting home....sigh....lots of people who stay the whole year in the state are pretty weary of it so I shouldn't be fussing!

Then we had some sad of our special winter Texan friends passed away....she just kind of collapsed with stroke symptoms and there was nothing that could be done...because we couldn't get in the field we were able to get to the funeral....may of our winter Texan friends were there and was good to see them all again but kind of bitter sweet, too.  Our friend was a jolly person, always telling some kind of funny story...we will miss think of her husband and the lonliness he is feeling.  That was in Minnesota and from there we went on out to Wyoming for a few days....special days there...needless to say.  Since we've been home from Texas we also lost a very fine middle aged man to cancer...he left a wonderful testimony but glad his suffering is over here.

Had a nice Mother's reading the comments on fb and seeing pictures....I really liked what one man posted saying happy mother's day to all that are mothers, wish they could be and those who adopted to become mothers...that last part especially touching because he is himself adopted.

some of my special things from Mother's day.....

And remembering this family of Marv's cousins...they lost their sister, Corann this spring, too...we certainly have been reminded this spring of this verse ... Ecc. 7:2

This has gotten kind of chatty ...wish I was better at this stuff...don't have much for pictures as camera is broken...need to shop for a new one....but at least a little up date.
