One of my "Special Folks"

I was just sitting here reading some blogs and had to spend extra time over at the "grammyof13" journal of my friend, Doris. To tell you the truth, I can't get enough of her writing, her reminiscences. For instance; her dad just turned one hundred and the family went home to celebrate his centennial. On top of that one of her nieces was married with the wedding to coincide with her dad's celebration. Doris posted many photographs and it was a joy to visit with her family, if only though a virtual web visit.

Doris has written about her dad in the past. I've always been deeply moved by her ability to capture images of him and her life back on the family farm. I can't recall any writer, famous or otherwise, who can conjure up such wonderful scenes. I see her dad, sweating behind a mule as he plows a field, sitting on his porch in old age, looking out over the land, wishing he could once again be out there working the soil. Wow! I'm getting those goose bumps again so off I go.

Thank you Dee!

Love ya, Dan

I had not read this before your visit today, or I'd have said something about it. Thanks so very much from the bottom of my heart for your kind words.

You guys are so special.
