|Roadside view of the farm|
On Tuesday, Baby sis and I made the two hour drive from the city to visit Dad.
First, we all went to the cemetery and I saw Mom's headstone for the first time. It's beautiful.
Then, we made the 'lotto ticket/farm loop.'
None of us live on or by the farm now. My parents sold the livestock and moved into a larger city twenty years ago. The land is leased to others who plow, plant and yield crops each year.
Dad and my brother placed a trailer on the farm last year so that any of us can go and play and spend the night if we want.
This is where I grew up, where my grandparents lived and where the drama of our lives unfolded.
Part of me will always be there.
