FTA: "They started that journal in 1985. Jack posted his first entry on April 11: "Lupine in bloom and the smell was very strong and heady. ... Weather just beautiful. Wish I could live here."

Twenty years and one month later, he wrote: "One of Mary's Dutch Iris bloomed today. It is just beautiful. If only she could see it. Maybe she can. She would love it. It looks like there will be possibly 3 doz more blooms. Yesterday was Dad's birthday. He would be 141 years old. I love you Dad. I love you Mom. I love you Mary."

"A little while and I will be gone from among you, whither I cannot tell. From no where we came, into nowhere we go. What is life? It is a flash of a firefly in the night. It is a breath of a buffalo in the winter time. It is the little shadow that runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset."

I propose a new meme--Whiny babies who cry about the dust meme.

My grandparents built their own house together in the late 50s. Never moved. When my grandmother died, they drove her body past the house, pausing briefly in the road, on the way to the cemetery. We'll likely do the same for my grandfather when the time comes.

I was thinking of posting a haunting image of a buffalo's breath in winter, but then thought a buffalo with a steaming cup of coffee was a better way close the thread :)
