What I really love about being here, something I never knew or probably never would have if I stayed in town, is that the people out here come together like I have never seen.
I am watching the wheat field at the end of the road grow. The thing that amazes me is that it wasn't leased out. when the farmer died, others in the area showed up to harvest and replant for the widow, expecting nothing in return. I am sure it will be leased out in the near future. But it is a nice, heart warming activity that is going on for the moment.
Sure, people in the town where I grew up would show up with food and offers to help with this or that, but never on the scale I have seen here. They don't take no for an answer.
My ankle still hurts, so I have been on light duty. I have a few things to do to get the goat kids ready for what sounds like a March blizzard headed our way.
