Meet Marty, the new robot at our grocery store. He scoots around all over the store, looking for things out of place and spills. Sometimes he will see you coming, and greet you at the door. He can turn on a dime. All of this tires him out, so he goes to bed at 9 P.M. Thoughts?
This is the sign he carries.
The woman just ahead of you at the supermarket
checkout has all the delectable groceries you
didn't even know they carried.
The stars shall fade away, the sun
Grow dim with age, and Nature sink in years;
But thou shalt flourish in immortal youth,
Unhurt amid the war of elements,
The wreck of matter, and the crush of worlds.
Robins built a nest right outside our living room window. They hatched and raised babies, and we had a front row seat! Unfortunately they were on the other side of double glass panes. I did my best to edit the pictures so they would show up better. So here is their journey!
I heard the sweet voice of a robin,
High up in the maple tree,
Joyously, singing his happy song
To his feathered mate, in glee!...
If we could be like this tiny bird,
Just living from day to day,
Holding no bitterness in our hearts
For those we meet on our way...
Once a year, the giant potato stops here on it's tour of the states, and today was the day! It weighs over 12,000 pounds! No, it is not real. Since today was the last day of school, we took two of the girls and made a day of it!
They had a craft booth where you could make your own potato head.
Then we went inside to cool off and have ice-cream.
The jukebox was free to play!
Then we went back to feed the goats.
And finally to a large thrift store, where Anne Marie found a long summer jumper and Jazz got an Easy Bake Oven. As soon as we got home, I put my feet up!
“These hard times are small potatoes compared to the coming good times, the lavish
celebration prepared for us. There’s far more here than meets the eye. The
things we see now are here today, gone tomorrow. But the things we can’t see
now will last forever.”
