Middle of the Week's Worth.....
Walking away from the seed tray. He had been there a long time and I cought him at the end of his stay.
The birds did eat up most of the seed in my old cafe platter. In the days when I was young, the hot beef sandwich came on a platter like this with the meat and bread sandwich with mash potatoes in the middle. Gravy was then poured over everything trying not to run it off the platter as they poured it. I brought this platter in with the thin frozen layer of ice on it. If it had been melted I am sure I would have slutped it onto the floor.
I looked at and picked out an orchid today. I gave it a ride around the store for a while then I took it back. It was too cold of a day to buy one. I found one that had a lot of buds on it but then it really was not a very fancy bloom. I have lost plants by taking them home in 18 degree weather, F. so I just put it back in the container next to the others. I really don't want to buy one that is in full bloom. The part of joy is to watch them open up one at a time.
My connection to the FB site gives me a glance back from family photos and building in the background. The pet bear that was raised there is kind of a sad story but it is said he was taken good care of. A lot of my antique furniture and things came from the farm marked J.S. Horton which is southeast of Hopeville. Hopeville Iowa History is the site's name. Thanks for stopping by today.
I am off for today. I thank you for stopping by today.
