I know you hurtin' and worryin', I can feel it on you, but you oughta quit on it now. Because I want it over and done. I do. I'm tired, boss. Tired of bein' on the road, lonely as a sparrow in the rain. Tired of not ever having me a buddy to be with, or tell me where we's coming from or going to, or why. Mostly I'm tired of people being ugly to each other. I'm tired of all the pain I feel and hear in the world everyday. There's too much of it. It's like pieces of glass in my head all the time. Can you understand?

Echoing across the Mountain Range as my trail leads me away from my familiar territory and into the cold and gloom .... "Can't you see that I am your friend"? In the distance, I hear the howl of another lonesome wolf.

Yes. I started with the sunrise coming over the steep hill above my house while sitting out on my lawn under a huge tree that my ancestor planting about 60 years ago and I was watching 5 deer graze upon that hill side. I watched the deer for nearly an hour and they kept turning their heads watching me and my dog that was sleeping on the ground at my feet and they were at Peace knowing that we were all friends and they continued to eat their breakfast while I enjoyed my coffee. A fawn ventured closer and closer, but we made no moves to frighten them away nor did they bother us.

Then just as my was finished it started a slow nice drizzle of rain and then deer went off into the protection of the forest and I came in and fixed a nice breakfast and then began to read my Civil War chronology and blended that in with a few stops in at the thread and numerous Lazy Boy recliner naps. A very Peaceful day. Thanks.

I am glad. I have always noted your inner peace with the world. So many are here but not aware...

And now just outside my kitchen window, I have 4 wild rabbits perched on their rear legs holding long stems of greenery with their front legs and nibbling the leaves. As they feel my presence looking out the window, they turn and look back at me and continue to nibble and I am sure I heard one of them whisper "Hello, we know who you are and we are not afraid". So I get a soft drink and slip back here and let them continue to be unafraid and nibble on their dinner.

At the battle of Richmond Ky, Confederates capatured 4300 Union soldiers and held 2000 of them on the Madison County Court House lawn. Union lost 1000 dead compared to 128 Confederates.

Conf. General Edmund Kirby Smith continued on and captured Lexington and Frankfort, which was the only Union Capitol captured during the war.

Afterwards, Smith traveled to Perryville to join forces with Conf. General Braxton Bragg who had engaged the Union in the western part of the state.

The Perryville Battlefield (that is 12 miles west of Danville Ky.) has an Historic site there as well.

Union Commander William (Bull) Nelson was later mortally shot by one of his subordinates in the Galt House at Louisville. He blamed Jefferson C. Davis (not the Confederate President) as being inept and the reason for the loss at Richmond Ky.

Davis was never charged with the death of Nelson since it was considered a "duel" resulting from Nelson's insult. Davis continued in the Union Army and served in Alaska fighting the Modocs.

Awakened one morning to the sound of a Bluebird crashing into my window. When I went out and picked the bird up, it's mate flew over and landed in my hand next to it. It stayed in my hand for a few minutes until I laid the dead bird on the hood of my truck, and then stayed with it(1 hour) until a proper grieving time had elapsed, I suppose.

The Union dead were taken down the river and buried on a bluff overlooking the Kentucky River in Jessamine County at what is now Camp Nelson National Cemetary and was also the recruiting and training center for the first black enlistees into the Union Army after the Emancipation Proclamation.

I was at an estate sale and the person having it said her Grandmother and her great grandmother were teachers. I told her I had once been a teacher and our conversation ended with her locating a box of old books she sold me for $20. Most have copyright dated between 1858 and 1889. I'm reading one now titled "Inasmuch" Also got some fantastic old history schoolbooks. They tell a slightly different story over our modern textbooks!

the Battle of Perryville was considered a draw by some Historians even though the Union had the most casualties. This opinion is mainly due to Conf. General Kirby Smith withdrawing and returning to Tennessee by way of London, Corbin, & Barbourville.

The neighboring farm owner passed away having been born in 1905. I have his father's smoking pipe and his mother's wire rim glasses and several books. One is "Lydia Pinkum's Ailments Peculiar to Women". If has a disclaimer that states that since it addresses "delicate matters" that it should be read in private and not shared openly. LOL

Also I have a book "Idle Thoughts by an Idle Fellow" by Jerome K. Jerome which depicts his and his friends travels down the Thames River in England. That book is dated 1854.

Those both sound fantastic! I have filled my home with great old antiques and treasures. In my office I have an old adding machine with the hand lever on the side. It's from the 20's and was the first model that subtracted.

The "Idle Thoughts by an Idle Fellow" dated 1854 can actually be read online, which I chose to do since the print is so small in the book. It is rather funny.

Hi Miss E. Had a good Sunday. A usual Sunday, but a good one. Got to see and worship with my Church Family, then had lunch afterward with my immediate family. I hope you had a good day as well.
