A Rural Life

“As much as I converse with sages and heroes, they have very little of my love and admiration.  I long for rural and domestic scene, for the warbling of birds and the prattling of my children.”

~John Adams (1735-1826), 2nd President of the United States of America

I agree wholeheartedly with John Adams!


Contented Eagle

“We’re so busy watching out what’s just ahead of us that we don’t take time to enjoy where we are.”

~ Bill Watterson, (1958- ) American cartoonist and the author of the comic strip Calvin and Hobbes


This bald eagle was sitting on a bundle of hay when I arrived and he was still there when I departed.
