The harvest and the late light


Our friends own Ask Harvesting, and we happened to be in the area where they were cutting wheat so we stopped to watch for a few minutes. And, of course, you know what I did while we watched…

(You can read more about custom harvesting, if you’re interested.)

Inevitable failure


The town, the business, even that bottom shelf: all doomed, sooner or later.

Floydada: 4 of 4

(All the way back in the last century, my son, Nathan, was ill*, and as a result our family participated in a Make a Wish trip. His friend Dennis went with us on the trip. We went on the annual Wish Flight, where kids from all around the country were flown to Dallas, then to Orlando, via a chartered plane. Nathan and Dennis decided to amuse themselves by pretending we were going to Floydada [a small town on the Texas High Plains], rather than Florida. They videotaped various participants in the event – the CEO of American Airlines, a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader, flight attendants, etc. – talking about how excited they were to be going to FLOYDADA. It was funnier, maybe, than it sounds, but I have a warm place in my heart for Floydada because of their crazy antics.)
