After moving back to the old homestead, I wondered for a year where my grandparents old house had stood? It was about a 1/2 mile up the country road where we would sneak off to visit. The entire acreage had been bulldozed and turned into pasture land. Long gone was the orchard with the June Apple trees and the rotting apples on the ground with the collection of June bugs that we would tie on a string and run around following where they flew, or chase around at night filling up fruit jars with lightning bugs. The barn was missing where the tobacco was hung, the chicken pen, the hog pen, the old cow shed, the outhouse.... all were missing... nothing except for green pastures and a few cattle.
But then spring came and even the bulldozers could not destroy all of grandmother's daffodils that surrounded the house and now I know precisely where the house once stood. Nor could the bulldozers destroy the mental images I have of Grandpa sitting in the front porch swing whittling on a piece of cedar and smoking his pipe filled with his own home grown tobacco, while grandma sat in a straight back chair on the other side of the door breaking beans, shelling peas, or churning the butter from the old cow that Grandpa had just milked. When I drive by, I slow my vehicle to a crawl and look up the hill once again... and they are still up there.
Thank you daffodils for restoring my nostalgic memories. I sometimes am inclined to take my shoes off and run barefoot around the house once again hoping the cousins will show up to play drop the hanky, hide-n-seek, Red Rover, or any other game long forgotten.
oh that is so sweet.

"Red Rover" was a game played with cousins lining up with 2 opposing teams holding hands about 25 yards apart and making a barricade. A leader of each team would grasp a stick alternating hand holds and playing "one potato,two potato" until there was no more room and the leader with no more room to grasp the stick would be "IT".

The "It" team would then yell "Red Rover, red rover we dare ????? over" and that person would run as hard as they could trying to break the opposing teams hand holds. If they succeeded in breaking the hand hold, they would take one person back to their side with them to join the opposition. If the hold held, then they had to stay where they were captured. Once the opponents were down to just one remainng cousin, that team had lost the game and that one remaining person would have to be "It" for the next round or be in the center of the circle for "drop the hanky" or be the first "seeker" for hide-n-seek, especialy if it was getting close to dusk.

Children were quite inventive back then before television and video games or even electricity to make them operate .

We played those games at school. During our family gatherings we didnt have enough cousins to play anything except hide and seek. The older boy cousins would borrow my bb gun and once they shot the cabbages-still in the garden, mind you-full of bb's. Grandma was rather surprised when she cooked one for supper! We did have a great yard for catching lightning bugs--as we called them. Unfortunately my kids and my nephews were so far apart in age that they missed all that comraderie. When my oldest was 15, the second was 10, one nephew was 5 and the other was a newborn :-(
We do have a family reunion every summer but we are so small in number that we invite the outlaws and inlaws.. Lol. Even My cousins ex- daughter inlaw comes and brings her new family! All the kids love swimming in the farm pond and the older adults sit in the shaded yard and watch. Lol The food? Oh yeah!
Headed out today for an over nite visit with friends in the great state of KY. All you in eastern KY be sure to wave at my grand kids as they head that direction to visit the other side of their family! Leaves should be brilliant and at their best during our travels! Have a wonderful day!!

If you really want to be my clone, you better switch your location to Lexington, Nicholasville, Versailles, or Berea and grow up in the process LOL.

@whom it may concern: The alarm clock is not my own. It belongs to the lovely(?) motel. I always use my phone alarm if I need to get up at a different time than I normally rise to shine.

I attended the Celebration of the passing on to GLORY for an old acquaintance:

Precious Lord, Take my hand
Lead me on, let me stand
I am tired, I am weak, I am worn
Through the storms, through the night
Lead me on to the Light..........

I'm fine thanks, just working through a little family drama.... Foolishness really. And there's never enough time, never enough.

Still, I'm thankful for and enjoying the crisp fall weather and colors. Beautiful, isn't it?
Goodnight MissE.

Yes, There is always drama where family is concerned.
I'm snuggled under the covers staying warm. I think I need a man or an electric blanket. The electric blanket will be less hassle-- right?

Imposter, MissE. Hello!!
Good night to all of you.
Been watching my grandpas barn being burned. It was no longer useable and very dangerous so it was partially dismantled then a bobcat took over to pile it up ready to burn. My sister and i sat with it 7 hours and its down to the last bit. Different people stopped to snack a bit ( yes, there was food and drink) and chat a while before heading home. The wooden corn crib and a smaller barn is all that's left of grandmas and grandpas place :-(

AW: Preciois Lord, take my hand....
Good one. And "there will be peace in the valley for me...."
