Snapshots: The Homeplace

Jasper is delighted to be home again and is always ready for his morning walk.

Significantly fewer exotic animals on our road than on my parents' road, but also significantly cooler and quieter.

The hollyhocks are blooming!

It makes me very happy that I can see them (and my tomatoes) out of my bedroom window.

And the garden in general has grown quite a bit in the last week. I even ate The First Tomato yesterday, and no, I did not share it with anyone. Because I never share The First Tomato with anyone.

I planted cabbages in this bed, and then a bunch of potatoes came up here that we missed digging last year. So now they're all growing happily together. I call it my colcannon bed, and I love it.

And last, A. bought a truck. He hasn't had a pick-up since Big Red went to the big scrap heap in the sky many years ago. This is a 1990 Ford Ranger, which I think technically makes it an antique. It's just two years newer than the Ford Ranger (Little Red) A. was driving when I first met him twenty years ago. But it runs fine, and it was very cheap, and it gets great gas mileage, so A. is happy with it.

There you have it! My life, snapshotted.

I, too, have a 1990 pickup truck! It’s red, but we call it “the ninety”, because we also have a Little Red and Big Red, which are dump trucks!

Anonymous: I love that. Jack would be so jealous of all your trucks. He still maintains he's going to drive big trucks when he's a grown-up.
