“Rain in May means a barn full of hay” is a phrase I’ve heard and if true the farmers should be very happy with all this rain. Here, just over the hilltop in Norwood, the cold, damp, rainy days continue on and on and when the sun breaks through, even for two minutes, it is…

Two little grandchildren, Garrett and Heidi, have been here since Wednesday evening with their mommy and daddy.

It’s Wednesday just over the hilltop and time to write to you. The sun keeps peeking in and out today but that is just fine as the temperature is more seasonal and the air easier to breathe. The irises have started to bloom in various spots around the property as the lilacs are going by….

“April love” is not just for the very young. I am oftentimes in awe of the thought that my love for Dick grows and grows and grows. How can it when it already fills my life? Is it similar to the love for your first child: you can’t imagine having a place for more? Then…
