Hi Cutie is Spring Coming?
The Colorado sun has been busy here at the farm. The snow drifts are turning into quick sand and where the ground is peeking through it is a muddy swamp that has taken my boot several times. As I was 3/4 the way down the drive I saw the mail man pull up. I am flinging my arms like a wild women trying to run with bags in hand and muck boots sticking with every attempt at speed. I reached him in time and he was giggling as I approached his Jeep. Catching my breath I asked "What is so funny?" He said "Only you would have a Lady Bug stuck to your face Grace"
I thought I had misunderstood him.
I handed my packages over to him and started back up the swamp trail to the house. As I was walking I kept thinking what in the world was he talking about. I swear I have the mail man from the movie named after this farm - you know the drunken nutter (Not saying this guy is like that but we do have a weekend guy who fits the bill). As I came up the stairs and thinking about what to have for lunch this little sweet one moved across my face and onto my eyelashes. I freaked for a second and then took a couple of snaps and set it free outside.
I guess Spring might come after all !!
