We're getting mighty close to departure now as we will soon leave for parts south. It is always is bitter sweet that we go, for this place is truly where our hearts live no matter where we travel. The past few afternoons we have taken a break from the chores and walked our ranch in the warm autumn afternoon saying goodbye to our friends who share this forty acre patch of heaven with us. My dear friend Scruffy hasn't shown up yet. I fear she may have not made it through the summer. A dear sweet doe that Scruffy.
We don't need a special day to give thanks for the privilege of living in this wild and wonderful place.
I'd better stop talking like that or we're libel to start unpacking!
