Work Horses

These horses are prepared for Winter better than us! They haven’t even heard the forecast for this week!

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!

Hope you are all feeling loved today! May those who have lost a companion, have close friends to comfort them during this holiday. This is the 55th Valentine’s Day that my wife and I have celebrated, the first three times were while we were courting!!

Leather gloves I sewed and did the beadwork on some 30+ years ago. While flying in Northwestern Ontario with a Luscombe in the winter time they were essential! One morning I went to fly home after a meeting, and they said I should wait to go until it warms to 40 degrees below zero!! Brrr! If you didn’t know 40 degrees below zero is the same temp in Celsius and Fahrenheit! Below is the is a phot of the plane (FZA) that I flew for most of the 440 hours I accumulated as a pilot.

That’s me leaning on the hoe, second from the left. I would have been a freshman in High School, but maybe in 8th grade. The rest were Uncles and Aunts, Siblings, and Cousins. They had come from Ohio to visit us in Iowa. We had been hoeing weeds in the strawberry patch. In the background you see the green tent in our yard, where us boys slept since the guests were using our bedroom.

Side Note: As a taxi driver this is how I like the snow. Everywhere but on the driveways and roads! 🙂

Home Sweet Home

While waiting for some taxi customers, I parked in the parking lot for this falls. I decided I wasn’t dressed for a long time outdoors, so I didn’t circle around the woods to get a front view. I also didn’t go down over the falls in or out of a barrel! I am still amazed at the number of people that went over Niagara Falls and survived! Have a great Tuesday!

It seems like I am attracted to Winter plowing by horses by the Amish farmers. I hope you enjoy seeing these posts. I decided to do the narrow landscape version to give added interest.
