Actually my birthday is today, the 25th. I will be helping Edens CSA farm recover from these latest hard freezes causing several pipes to break. She can handle most breaks but one is in the wall. I do a volunteer work-share at the farm in Balch Springs. I will be farm sitting next week end while she is attending the TOFGA conference. She has had trouble with theft and wants someone there to as a deterrent.
I will try to PM my contact info. It is best not to post personal contact info in public forums. System says it was successfully sent. I can send you a selfie if I get your number. Also you can go to https://www.facebook.com/DFWEcovillage
Just scroll through the pictures and look for the oldest person there,usually wearing dark blue cut-offs and a light blue sleeveless shirt. In one picture I am wearing blue jeans and a black hoodie. I'm 5' 10" 188#(just stepped on the scale).
How much help have you had getting all the work done at your place? Did you start working on everything before you "retired"? I have limited space where I live and last years garden was a bust.
Easier to talk more freely on email. I do not use my phone for email, so I have to be on my computer.
Something I wrote about a year after my wife died.
What I Miss Most of All
Going to the beach for a walk on the sand,
Her gentle caress, the touch of her hand,
Her firm embrace,
The smile on her face,
The look in her eye
As I walked by,
Her presence near me as we lay on the bed,
The love we shared by the words that were said,
Those little things shared from day to day,
The love that grew between us, along the way.
Of all the things shared both great and small
It’s the little things I miss most of all.
