Saturday in the country


Saturday in the country

Bill was told by a friend that there was a light commercial sander available on Craig's List. We drove 40 miles east to see it Saturday. While they drove to another farm building to check it out, I stayed in the farmyard with two sweet border collies, sketching.

In a back pasture lies this strange little hill with a cross on top. The rancher said it's where their church meets for sunrise service. He also told us that the hill has been there longer than their family can remember (several generations) --- rumor has it that an old American Indian was buried there on top of his horse. I also found this old hedge stump fascinating.

  2. I didn't know whether to nod politely as he told me the tale or bust up laughing! Locals want to excavate the hill but he says no.
