Cricket Hill



Please tell me I'm not the only one who sees the eyes and mouth on this tractor.












Unless I'm mistaken, it's whistling, too.




A friend from this blog who owns a home in the Cricket Hill area asked me to watch her garden while she was out of town.

(Watch = Water + Note to Self: Please don't forget to water, thank you very much).

Anyway.

The tractor above lives peacefully in the woods on the way to her home. I've admired it for some time.

Another thing I've admired is the view from her dock.










I've had the privilege of sitting in one of those chairs and can tell you that once your feet hit that dock, all stress is immediately released to the universe.










Shifting gears, today includes (unless it rains) a soccer game in Windsor, which is exactly 3,000 miles from Mathews or 2,500 from California, depending on which way you're traveling.

A blog post which began with a whistling tractor and could ramble into perpetuity unless forced to a conclusion ended with pink chairs and a trip to Windsor is now coming to a merciful close.

The End.

In the first tractor pic I see an old man tractor. Pretty sure he's yelling at some "whippersnappers". In the second whistling photo what was the nose in the first pic is now the whistling mouth. You're not alone in your psychosis. I CAN NOT WAIT to be down there this weekend. My feet (and the rest of my body) need to hit any dock in an attempt at relieving stress.

I have a tractor like that, but I can't get the damn thing to start. Any suggestions?

Love the photos of the face of the tractor, but not as much as I love that dock, where stress disappears. I need to sit there for a while.

I've always seen faces in machinery, especially cars. I think the design them that way. Why else would we give them names and talk to them?

As for the garden tending and dock, here's a plan....set up a sprinkler in the garden to water it, and while it's doing it's thing, YOU go sit on the dock and decompress.
