A year after the State Gazette published A Brief History of Samaria Bend by Rachel Townsend, a guy whose grandfather helped to build the barn contacted her and she put him in touch with me. He lives in Michigan and will be in this area around the 28th for a tour. The history buff in me is ecstatic! Also, the publishers of A Page in Time plan to transition from my mother's father's story to how it led to Ferguson Farm. It's quite a tale!
Plan B is in place, Lord willing and the creek don't rise. It will be implemented after the first of the year when I see what my tax situation is. It will be a hot mess I'm sure so I'm choosing to defer my next move until I see how it all pans out. I'm two years away from Medicare which sucks. Everybody should have it. If you look at how many people die before EVER accessing these benefits that they paid for, it makes you wonder where all that money goes. Military parades?
I need a haircut but I'm letting it go gray. I think it will be a subtle passage like my mother's was. Graceful, if you will. Chucky and Vicki have kept me cut and colored and permed for 45 years. Now I'm happy with a Marla cut and some facial waxing for a treat. Once Lauren got a brush tangled in her hair and I had to take her to them to get it out. UCMTSU.
Holmes Tree Service came this morning and he's already done. It helps to have a place to put the wood right across the road. I can still get to it if I get the help to make a Swedish torch!
Think happy thoughts and keep on truckin'.
