May 11, 2017 – Day 1

Psalm 119:49-50
Remember the word unto thy servant,
upon which thou hast caused me to hope.
This is my comfort in my affliction:
for thy word hath quickened me.

‘and thy word of promise was
the means of keeping our souls alive’
Clarke’s Commentary

Good Afternoon

At Cozy Acres – ┬áthe beginning

Our journey started at 3:22 pm
as we pulled out of the driveway.
I dreamed about starting at 12 noon,
hoped for 2:00 pm,
thankful for leaving before 4 o’clock!

Almost made it to Woodland
when the Farmer noticed
the right side mirror was moving.
The spring to keep the mirror
extended had sprung and was trying to close,
The Farmer tried to tie the mirror open with a strap – fail.
Stopping again, the Farmer placed wood screws
in the hinge area to keep the mirror from moving – Success!


Picture explains easier than words.

We arrived at William and Shirley Holmes’
(the Farmer’s sister) our first scheduled stop at 6:56.

We had a good visit, seeing the improvements
made to the house and yard, Shirley’s handwork
ready for the fair, and William’s target showing good aim.
His big game – ground squirrels.
They are making the home and yard theirs, I’m glad.

William and Shirley live in the partial dark ages,
no internet and no WiFi. Shirley does have a phone
held captive by a cord to the wall, a cell phone
(that gets turned off when she goes to bed), and
TV with a dish on the roof.

My posting will have to wait for WiFi.

I finished putting stuff away in the trailer,
wondering did I really need to bring all this stuff?
I’ll let you know at the end of our journey if there
was stuff that never saw the light of day,
staying hidden in the packed box.

The afternoon and evening of the first day.
Good Night
