The Pink Truck

This truck looks like it has many stories to tell

I fell for it the moment I saw it

But it’s Not For Sale

She hardly seems lonely

Sitting out on that country road

Visitors must stop by daily

And admire that

Little Pink Truck

On Rebecca Creek Road

Rosemary

Rosemary was my friend. She started out as my Avon customer. A nice elderly lady I would look forward to visiting every two weeks when I would deliver her order. Our friendship went on for a few years then we moved to Texas. While I have been living in Texas, she passed away from a stroke. I keep in touch with her daughter and we let each other know how we are doing.

I have been thinking about her a lot lately. I have often thought that since I lost my grandparents when I was pretty young that I seem to create a bond or friendship with elderly people. I guess I miss my grandparents. May they all REST IN PEACE.

With this said, I got a fish the other day. It is a female beta colored like a peacock. She is beautiful. I named her Rosemary.

Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Ophelia says, “There’s rosemary, that’s for remembrance.” (Hamlet, iv. 5.)

Bittersweet Spring 2011

Bittersweet Spring 2011

As I look back at pictures I took a couple of weekends ago, I feel such a bittersweet emotion coming from deep in my heart. It has been 6 months since we lost Amanda and Adrian. I know many of us think about them daily and always will. They will never be forgotten and sweet memories surround us, but as I watched Danielle playing in the lake, I saw that she has reached a place of peace after the tragedies. It was nice to see her smile again. I, in turn, felt peace knowing this. I also felt peace knowing that as the sun set, Amanda and Adrian were watching over us. I could feel them in the beautiful sky on this evening.  Please enjoy the pictures in this slide. It was a bittersweet start to our spring/summer, but it will go on. For all of you that has lost someone close, time is the hardest thing to wait for, but time will heal eventually. Love to Pam and Irene, I wrote this for you.

Mental Day Trip 3-19-11 Part 3

After leaving Pedernales Falls we drove into Burnet, TX and found Falkenstein Castle. This is a private residence but they rent out the castle for wedding parties and private events. Someday I would like to get a look and photograph inside. I hear it is gorgeous.
