some kind of machine. I think it takes the corn off of the cob.




Tubs with plants and onions. My bus in it's nice location.




A giant smoker.

My truck and the greenhouse.




Peach trees. There are also pear trees and apple trees on the property.




The John Deere Gator. A good device for hauling stuff around.

Some antique device. Maybe this is the one that takes the corn off of the cob?




The wonderful John Deere zero turn lawn mower. I love this thing.




Some other contraption.

Re: Best Home Yet

Sure hope you have enjoyed the pics.

Here are some words from last Sunday.

I will start with the awesome day I had.

After recuperating from Friday, I had a wonderful day today. I had the energy to clean my bus very well. I even took the air conditioner apart and cleaned it. I also vacuumed the dog hair that is always a part of my life.

Then the fun began!

Usually, on the weekends, I go to a friend's house and play music with some friends.

I think that I told you that there are two guitarists, who sing, as well as the keyboard player who sings as well.

I usually play the bass.

Today, a guy named Bob could not make it to the(what we call a Jam).

He plays guitar, and is also a real good drummer.

I asked Stanley, who is a friend that I have been playing music with for many years, if he would like to come to the "jam".

Stanley was all for it. He started on the guitar. Then he switched to bass.

Because Bob was not there today, we played just two guitars (Stanley and Joe). Mike played the keyboards( piano or organ).

I was asked to play the drums. Stanley then played the bass.

Everyone, including myself, was extremely impressed with my drumming. I knew that if I kept the drumming simple, yet convey a strong beat that has impeccable timing, it would work well.

I guess that those other guys inspired me. It was very fun.

So, I got home, and noticed that there was company here. I went into the building and said Hi.

As always when there is company over, Rufus asks me if I could play soft background music on the accordion for his guests. I like doing that.

There were a couple of songs, however, where I got carried away and played some fast fun songs. They all loved it.

It is a beautiful, unrainy night.

I walked the dogs.

My bus is very clean.

I am feeling very happy tonight.

Re: Best Home Yet

Pictures are extremely deceiving. Someone is working their
butt off to make that place look the way it does; aaannd they
may be enjoying it too. They are working their butts off though!!
