JOHN COMES HOME TODAY............!!!!

The recorded temperature in Benson yesterday was 107*........!!! With just one person doing chores it takes twice as long. When the temperatures are that high, it seems like chores take forever. Besides the kids get grumpy because they think I'm taking too long. So they'll be happy, I'll be happy, not sure about John. When he called yesterday he said it was about 75* in Indiana, I wouldn't blame him if he decided to stay.........!!! (G)

Today is also our 47th wedding anniversary. Not sure what we thought life would be like in 1961, although over the years it's certainly taken twists & turns we never expected, let alone thought of at the time. Having donkeys & even doing rescue wasn't a big stretch for me. But John was raised with 1 dog, 1 cat & one parakeet. My childhood had a mixture of animals ranging from the usual, dogs, cats, guinea pigs, rats, horses, to crows, bunnies, raccoons & for a short time a possum. Trust me, they don't make good pets.

Can't wait to see what the future brings, I'm sure it will be interesting...........!!!
