Love the photos. It is hard to pick a favorite, but I think mine is the corner of the tobacco barn. But then there's the long and winding road...

I don't know that any one of the photos is that spectacular, but I do like how they looked lined up together on the page. They look green -- like summer.

The long and winding road is my favorite. I am always looking for what lies over the next hill or around the corner !

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)
