Hello from just over the hilltop where this last week was exceptionally busy and “we will have these moments to remember.” Snapping fresh beans given to us by our neighbor, John, along with delicious beets, two kinds of lettuce, and zucchini. Admiring the classic cars at the Hometown Cafe Tuesday evening. Watching our grandchildren Elizabeth,…
