I’m sad to see that Summer is dusting off her luggage and starting to pack it up and head out of town. I love you Summer! You will be missed by me.
Now that the University of Central Missouri is in full swing I want to share with you what flew over the other day. We live almost on campus. I knew the first home game for the football season was going to be special. In cahoots with Whitman Air Force Base they were planning on a fly over of the B2 Bomberas our National Anthem finished.
I went outside with camera in hand hoping the Stealth would go over my house so I could get a pic of it. We see and hear them all the time and our street is a common course for them.
So, all of a sudden the traffic mysteriously got quiet and I could hear the young man sing the last line of our National Anthem. I turned my camera on as he sang out and I stood up to get ready. All of a sudden the B2 came overlow and loud and I nearly dropped the camera. Even my dog started barking at him and chasing him down the yard. It’s the best I could do……
The weather this summer has been mild for the most part. To me, anyway. My husband does not like summer, so he is happy it is ending. (he doesn’t like winter either)
Yesterday my husband and I took off into the wilds of the mid-west. Well, took off on some country roads and drove east into the wilds of Missouri. Yes, you guessed it, farms. And yes, sky. It really is beautiful and peaceful. Some of you look into the vast oceans we look into the vast sky and rolling hills and the food that you all eat.
These pictures of the farmland were taken from the open window of our non-air conditioned jeep wrangler while going highway speed. And not from my iPhone! I used an actual camera! Dry mid-west breezes reaching temperatures into the low 90s. It was great.
We had a long needed get away that day. Our destination? The lovely town of Warrensburg, MO, home of University of Central Missouri – the Mules.
Home of the Whiteman Air Force Base. Home of Java Junction incredibly good coffee! Home of J & J – two friends of ours that met us in town and had a great time together!
Myself and Old Drum together on the courthouse corner.
Who says we don’t have fun in the Heartland? We had a great time. Came home feeling rested and hot and rested…..and hot.
It is so good to get away from the daily grind. Even if it’s just going to a nearby park and doing nothing. A change of scenery can clear your mind and give you a better perspective of your life. You begin to see things differently. Really. Try it.
Life is short so get out there and smell the roses or the corn and soy beans.
