the farm in Wisconsin
We're here! Wisconsin is so beautiful in October. The farm just glows with the changing colors. I'm in heaven.
And it is so wonderful seeing my Mom & Dad. They are so incredibly healthy and active. I pray I have the level of energy they have when I'm their age!
This is the farm house I grew up in. My brother Ron & his wife Deb live on the farm now. And my parents built a home next to the farm.
I love being here. So many memories. So many emotions. Everywhere I look I remember a moment and I am taken back to a time and place... my summer playhouse in the little corn crib, listening to Paul Harvey's "Rest of the Story" on the radio in the barn as I fed the calves, sleeping in the porch on a hot summer's night, waiting out a tornado from the basement, walking to the windmill on the hill to turn either on or off. Mmm, life was good.
But guess what? I'm in love.
You see, there was someone Randy & I were anxious to meet.
Umm, no, it would not be these two.
But this little guy! Is he just the cutest puppy ever! OK, maybe not as cute as our Koda. But a close second.
Boomer is Ron & Deb's new little puppy and well, I'm totally smitten with him! Randy & I cannot get enough of him. Trust me, you will see more of this little ball of energy in the posts to come!
