Father’s Day

Lunch break is over and time to get back to work. Sons follow their father.

This little fellow had trouble finding his hat, and was late for work! 🙂

The last boy must not have found his hat, and the other is still struggling to get it on right!

Here are some of the 42 quart they put in my van, for my taxi customer! She had asked for 40 quart and they decided to throw in 2 extra for good measure! And no, the were all bright red, but some were in the shade, and I exposed for them! 🙂

A Money Flower

Not sure if Money Flower is the correct term for this arrangement of the 91 dollar bills my Uncle received on his 90th birthday!!! He also received over 200 cards in the mail, kind of appropriate since he was a mail carrier for many years!


My cousin (on the right) just received the book, “Those Holmes County Hills,” a book that my Uncle (on the left) wrote. Something about the book amused him.

Back to My Roots

Heading South out of Kalona, our address for years, I entered the town of Washington, Iowa. I was born in this town.

It’s late Spring so the corn is not too tall yet! We had a saying, that corn will likely be “Knee-high in the 4th of July!” At the Corn Palace in South Dakota the guide would say that all the corn inside was Iowa corn. The corn on the outside of the building was South Dakota corn, which was too tall to get inside the building! 🙂

Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge

Red Hot

The Forge of the “Blacksmith Shop on Wheels.” Every so often, I sub for their driver, driving their blacksmith-equipped van to different locations to shoe horses!

Enjoy the Flight

No little people were hurt during this photoshoot! And yes, it wasn’t a flight only a drive in my minivan. He was one of my customers. His Aunt stuck him in the seat, and took my camera and took this shot for fun. And yes, he was moved to his car seat in the rear for the “flight!”

Horse Country

Winter Farm Scene

This winter sure has many days when those clearing lanes like this have had their work cut out for them. I hear there is a big storm heading our way!

Belated Merry Christmas

WhatI faced at 4 am on Christmas morning!

Started this on Christmas Day and finished it the following morning. This puzzle was one of my Christmas gifts.

Taxi work was light, so I decided to tackle this 1,000 piece puzzle! The first time I ever saw a Product Warranty for a puzzle. This puzzle was given to me for my birthday in August.

This is how much I accomplished by Monday morning.

Not a pocket-size camera!

I couldn’t resist taking a photo of this camera at a local grocery store!

This was actually an un-edited photo.

And a church cemetery. I think it belonged to the church in the top photo. Also, I think it was near Middleburg, Pennsylvania, USA.
