*photo of Baby Curl, Aunt Leggy and Dash walking the lane, in Nebraska*
This photo was taken at my second cousins place, out in the hills. The family has been farming and ranching these parts for generations. It is a gorgeous place, and quiet. You can hear the wind rustling through the fields, the birds singing, and yes, you can smell the cattle. At one time the farm had chickens, pigs, a couple of horses. It currently houses a small amount of cattle, and grain is grown. It is a beautiful place to listen to the birds, and watch the sun setting.
On this day my cousins were celebrating 50 years of wedded bliss. It was a hot day with 103 temperatures, thank God for prarie winds. The children busied themselves with a game of croquet, and we walked the lane at least 5 times.
