When I flew in to San Diego, my friends Ray and Tony picked me up at the airport and took me to my folks’. Mom wasn’t in any shape to be driving around and Dad needed to stay with her.

Yep, used that as a title. I’m in California this week. Mom’s doing well, thanks for all the kind thoughts and love. Sue is taking care of things on the farm… I’m hoping that Dustin is helping where he can.

She also sent along this photo of the sunrise from the other day. It’s always gorgeous at the very beginning and very ending of the day.

Our farm has its own witness; two really, but one who really keeps an eye on what’s going down. Continue reading
