Thoughts While ShavingThankful for every drop of rain that fell yesterday … 38 hundredths of an inch recorded at the local airport weather station, sure we needed much more, but thankful for every drop. Hopeful of more … soon. Checking the forecast for the area … Sunny today … High near 60, and March northeast wind 8 to 15 mph, with gusts as high as 23 mph. Partly cloudy tonight, with a low around 38. Looking ahead to Sunday (CHURCH DAY) … Showers, yep showers, mainly after 1 p.m. High near 56. Chance of precipitation is 80%, totals in the tenth to quarter of an inch range.

Still a while before serious planting time … but thought about farmers using a single-plant hand transplanter … with one (most of the time) female, walking backwards, dropping plants … one at the time … for acres and acres of tobacco … Just one more reason why farming was never high on my list as a career … Different today … still hard work…

My baby sister is visiting from near Winchester, Va., for a few days … Only 4 others between the two of us, in age … Thankful for all. Age from mid 60s to mid 80s, all living, and all able to take nourishment…

“Family is not an important thing, It’s everything.” Michael J. Fox

“One big happy family, most of the time … eight (including parents) … Never a dull moment. Lot’s of fun … some frustrations, someone always on the go.”

“Family, like branches on a tree, we all grew in different directions, yet our roots remain as one.”
