This afternoon I’m gettng ready for a visit from the grand-buddies and grand-princesses so I dug out Uncle Wesley’s genuine Red Ryder BB Gun.
For a few minutes this afternoon I was a ten-year-old boy again with the on my neck and the wind in my hair out on Bittersweet Farm. We are going to make some very sweet memories here… camping out, roasting weiners, making smores, listening the birdsongs, watching the waterfowl crossing over head, the bats and the martins flitting in the evening sky and and enjoying the smell of a wood fire. For just a few minutes this afternoon I was a boy again.

It was a beautiful afternoon. This may have been the first real day of spring-like, we-have-the-snow-behind-us weather. I was musing out on the acres and have some ideas. We will see how they pan-out.
