Our long awaited MOVE has become a reality! If I had a dollar for every box of books I've packed, how many times I have planted my butt at the computer playing 'therapeutic' Tetras, or how many times I've screamed ' I'M TOO OLD FOR THIS!' I'd go on a shopping spree when this nonsense is over. After 4 years of living in three rooms in the 'pet building' I serendipitously found us a duplex with two bedrooms, lots of windows, one block from the lake --all reasonably rentable--and lovable.
The movers come on Tuesday next and luckily for all involved, our move is only about three blocks away. Very soon I'll be UN-packing all these boxes. But, wow, what a trade off.

Or as Orson Welles said, “Create your own visual style... let it be unique for yourself and yet identifiable for others.” More D words to see at ABC Wednesday.

I’m sorry I complained about the heat,
You know how I can be.
Once again, I’ve slept under your blanket
My fears dropped all over the floor
Your murmurings in my ear now
Sweet morning dew.
Overhead the loon calls for his mate and I know you
Are listening, not to me
But to the rhythm of change
You are quietly slipping away, until next time.
Have I mentioned that it really wouldn't be odd
For each year to have

Nothing compares to the smell of crops in the field covered with dew or the farm animals when you're on a motorcycle. And the sky really put on a show for us.

Also turns out it was taken by my Uncle Fred who has owned a photo shop for many years in Pocatello and is the keeper of many of our family's and city's earlier photographic history. So it made sense that he would have taken a photo in his own neighborhood. On closer inspection I see my cousin Ronnie in the front row! Of course, I deduced, Uncle Fred must have taken this casual group shot of Ronnie's class. [All those Nancy Drew novels I read paid off!].
For more 'C's visit ABC Wednesday. Who knows who you'll see!

This is the kind of red I am fond of: a bit more primitive. This building sits right on the Mississippi and was an old warehouse in the mid 1800's but now is divided into little shops. We ate at the Picket Fence Cafe where I hooked a lovely pink glass creamer for my collection. I've not spent much time in Iowa before but was agog at all the many miles of corn fields, the wholesome looking, friendly people and roadside produce stands galore. More photos to come. . .in the meantime, visit Mary @ Ruby Tuesday.
