Down here in the Delta you occasionally get an indication that your mate of 34+ years still loves you. Since these events only occur randomly, it's a good idea not to wait around for them or try to predict them cause, even though they can't spell it, random means random to a redneck.
My latest random indication of love came just a short time ago as the ringing phone jarred me from a deep sleep.
James: Are you up?
Brenda: I am now.
James: Oh, I figured you'd been up awhile, it's almost 9 O'clock.
Brenda: (looking at the clock that says 8:35) Zach's still asleep so I was still asleep.
James: Oh, well I wanted to ask you if you could wear a 2X sweat shirt.
Brenda: You're asking do I? or can I?
James: Can you, cause they've only got 2 sizes left on sale, a 2X and a 3X.
Brenda: Well it would have to be the smaller one then, but why?
James: The John Deere place has these sweat shirts on sale and I thought I'd get you one. Do you want a red one or a green one?
Brenda: Green, who ever heard of a red John Deere anything?
James: Ok, I'll get you a green one. Oh, and Louis (the John Deere Parts man) says I should get a 4X to be sure to cover your big ass,,(snicker, snicker).
Brenda: Tell that redneck Mexican to kiss my big ass.
I just get overwhelmed by these random indications of love around here and I'm sure the sweat shirt will keep most of me warm.
I wandered around outdoors with my camera a bit yesterday cause my Autumn sunflowers are a'bloomin. I love these sunflowers.
