How long is a spell anyway? Half an hour or half a day?
Ack red is horrible to photograph.
Most of it is best left as an impressionist painting. All photos are from Bergeson Nursery August 2014.
We had company this week…Alaska Guy spent an afternoon with us. It required sitting for a spell. Alaska Guy is doing well and will retire in February, it seems the United States won’t allow pilots to fly commercially after their 65th birthday. He still isn’t married but he has a gal. I knew him before I knew Far Guy…so I have known him practically forever…since I cannot remember when I didn’t know him. ( We lived near each other growing up) He loves to fly and related to us how his first flight was with his Dad and Neil Chilton with a take off in a nearby field …Neil was an Air Force Pilot with his own small plane. Alaska Guy said “ When he banked over the lakes it felt as if I might fall out of the plane.” Any normal kid would have been scared to death…not so much Alaska Guy.
Far Guy’s Uncle Archie visited one afternoon too. He is back living at the farm full time. He is always busy cutting wood and tending the garden during the summer and helping out his adult children.
I hope you had time this week to sit a spell and visit with some special people in your lives!
