I thought I would give you a break from all the pictures of my family. Just a break, I have lots more to share. Just a few pictures along the way. I loved this sunset coming through Kansas. The farm in the background seemed to be a large one with the size of the silos. I grew up in the country but not on a farm.
Windmills everyone in this one stretch. Reminds me of ET. I'd love to have one in my yard. I have heard there are concerns about having them. But if they save us from buying oil??????? But since there aren't that many places that have them there must be some reason why. I know in Colorado they have them (just a few) on some land that was contaminated by uranium. There didn't seem to be much around where all these were.
RED LIGHTS could be seem for miles around Limon (Colorado?) . They would flash totally off and on again. They were millions and for miles. I have been trying to find out what they were and the only thing I could find out was maybe "Amtrak". Does anyone know. It began to get a little strange after awhile and very late at night.
The "Gateway to the West." If I actually took time to edit these photos they would be pretty good coming from a car window. Esp. if I edited out the train cars. My aunt and uncle lived in St. Louis so I got to see this quite often. We esp. went this route so my granddaughter could see this.
We had planned on doing some fun things along the way. We didn't do much of that. On the way from Colorado to Ohio we stopped at the OZ museum. I will show some pictures of that later. We also spend an hour and a half at a McDonalds play space inside while some threatening storms blew over. Sad to say that was about it . Once you are on the road it is hard to stop with little ones. Potty breaks took at least an hour.
A little under the weather here. Weather for sure......it has rained for over 2 weeks and is not supposed to stop til next week-end. Everything is so greeeen and pretty. So far no flooding close to us. We live up a big hill but it could still creep into the house if we aren't careful. Weeds are so tall and just waiting for some attention. Our grass has stopped growing. But I will take rain over the dreadful heat some are having. I don't do well in dry environments either. Those poor fireman and their families. God Bless them.
I am not feeling well either. Nothing too serious. Trying to get a handle on it. Something I may have picked up from my travels. Not much of an immune system in this ole body. It may have been some ice from a moldy machine in McDonalds.......sorry I don't mean to tattle. My daughter went to get ice in an empty cup and something black fell into it. So, not really making that up. So if not better by Monday, tests will have to happen. Like to avoid that as they never seem to solve much. Maybe the third antibiotic will do the trick.
So the 4th was quiet. We went to a movie.....The Heat. Funny but a lot of four letter words, one in particular. Hubby is at the family reunion without me today. He will also be visiting with his Mom in the nursing home. She's not doing too well these days. I have been able to visit with immediate family members in the last month, so I don't feel quite as bad as I would other wise.
So I hope all had a fun 4th. Can you believe that it is already July. They say in our neck of the woods that the corn should be knee high by the 4th of July.....ours is about 6 foot high, hah. But we are thankful for the rain even if it is a pain sometimes. We have a well........yep, it needs rain once in awhile.
