VISITING BOB AND MELVIN…
No doubt, you can guess that this image wasn’t taken this summer…but early spring…when we
still hand green grass….
Bob was having a lovely day, the bluebirds were singing and I was a happy girl
I visited with Bob and Melvin again just recently…and surprisingly, yet again, Bob walked
right up to me and laid his head up against my leg…ever so slightly…It was high in the 90′s
and the horses had a fine sheen of sweat on them…They went to the woods first thing, but
came back to the barn…too hot even in the woods…
Melvin called out to me to stop back in the house before I left..he had a book he wanted
to show me….it was a scrapbook from 2000…showing pictures of Melvin
working in the field with a team of horses, even some horses pulling a sleigh!
Loved visiting with Melvin…but the house must have been 100 degrees and I
was wiping sweat off my face like crazy…Melvin didn’t even break a sweat and he
was wearing coveralls!!! I think he’s a better man than I am!
