Wanda Rector enjoyed a trip to Colorado with her grandchildren, taking the great grandchildren to a skateboarding contest. They visited the Grand Canyon, Royal Gorge Garden of the Gods, etc. The thing that was so different to Wanda was how you entertained yourself in the car while traveling. None of this looking for license plates, counting cows, talking, singing, reading. No, each person has their own electronic device with fingers poking or earbuds. Wanda enjoyed the scenery and being with family.
Over at the Robin Siegismund farm, Robin and Belle have been picking blackberries on their walks, getting enough for Mabel to make a pie to share at quilting. Robin says there is no shortage of chiggers and will spray better the next time.
