Hello sweet ladies,
It has been a really tough day today. Hot!!!!! The weather was extremely hot and there has been so much to get done on the farm. We are taking equipment to an auction that will be this weekend. Change! I don't like it. Tonight my honey was cleaning out the old red truck that Grandpa Jack bought and drove all over the country side. I remember sitting with him when he was driving, he knew one speed, fast. He scared me half to death. He knew that field like the back of his hand. I can see him to this day in it. Cute little man with overalls and a farm hat on his head. Grandma Jo said every time he went to town he would have to put on his "good overalls". He put his billfold in the front top pocket, it was always bulging! Funny what you remember. The old red truck has just sat by the barn, it hasn't been driven for a long time. Their was some security just looking at it there and remembering Grandpa. Now it will be driven down the road to the sale and sold. Gone! I know it is just a little old old truck, but it belonged to Grandpa, who we worked along side for 30 plus years. It was his, not someone else's, not even mine, but it belongs on his farm. Life..... hard.......I will deal with it and the Lord will help me to get on the other side. Still hurts. This probably sounds all silly and probably is. I just don't like change, never have, never will, but that is life isn't it.
When I look at this little red truck, I think of a very special man in my life who has gone to be with the Lord. Who was the most precious farmer, besides my honey that I knew. This truck worked hard for Grandpa. This Sat. it will be sold, gone from Grandpa's farm. Doesn't seem right. Wish I had the money to buy it. I do have the memories though and for that I will be thankful..............
Well, now that I have boohooed through that. Today I went to go check Mrs. Puddle Duck. She did not disappoint me. I came around the corner and she had another baby chick this morning. Precious little thing! I took some pic's, had to share with! Love the farm life. Thought Mrs. Puddle Duck was so sweet with her baby chick.
The picture at the bottom right turned out I thought of Momma Puddle Ducks face.
Enjoy the two videos. They turned out really fun! Love the one with the computer! The little chick was a hoot! Worth watching! In it I told my grandson to keep his hands down. Earlier the baby chick would sit on his hand. Didn't capture it on this video though.
Get your little ones around you to watch. They will love it!
The pic at the top of the post was taken with my Farmer Man, he makes sure that my life is
full of special things, like baby chicks! I am a grateful for the simple life!
