Still in an interminable waiting mode around here. So, while we wait, I thought I'd take you on a small tour of the 'home-land.' I love the western side of this state, have made it my home for many, many years, but there is beauty to behold here, folks, and I'm happy to show it to you. This picture tour comes to you with thanks to three of my four siblings who each took at least one of the photos, and to my youngest daughter, SK, who also contributed to it.
SK and I standing in a wheatfield, ripe for the harvest, on a hot August afternoon, just to show you how high the wheat grows. When it's ripe, wheat isn't prickly to walk in, though it also isn't as soft as it appears in this picture, when you might imagine you could lay on it like on a down mattress.
