"Independent" Thoughts . . .

 Our July 4th celebration started a bit early with an Omaha Stormchasers (AAA farm team for the Royals) ball game, followed by fireworks.  The bank that sponsored the display gave out "prism" glasses that added a kaleidoscope effect .

Our seats weren't bad - row 1, behind home plate.

Also this week:
The lettuce crop got a bit out of hand.  Salad anyone?
I took my first walk around the section for the summer.  That dot of white on the left side is Green Acres.  The strip of yellow on the right is a wheat field being harvested.  Only a half-mile to go!

The walk was worth the aching feet and - ugh! - sweat.

The ditches were full of lilies . . .

I met these ladies who, for some reason, made me think of my sisters and I
- 1 blonde, 1 redhead, 1 brunette.  Hope they don't mind the comparison.

And this was the reward at the end of the road.  Priceless!

Have a safe and happy 4th of July.
God Bless the USA!


  1. That's a lot of lettuce!!!!
