First off, I want to thank everyone for all of the prayers that were said for me during my surgery. It was a little worse than what the doctor thought but everything is going to be ok. I feel so much better. My wonderful office sent me these. Aren't they gorgeous. Thank you everyone and also for all of the wonderful food that you brought to the house. My family appreciated it so much. They didn't have to cook at all.
My dear daughter and her youngest puppy came to take care of me. That was so thoughtful of her, considering she lives 4 hours away. She took off of work 2 days and left her hubby for 3 days to be here. Thank you Peter for giving her to us for 3 days. Here is a picture of her youngest along with her feet in the picture.
Now on to the craft fairs. They have started in our neck of the woods. Labor Day always brings the clothesline fair at Prairie Grove Battlefield. It use to be they had quilts hung on clotheslines and various other crafts displayed very primitively. Not anymore. They are now in booths or tents. I took some pictures of tents but the crafters don't like for you to take too many pictures of their wares for the sake of them being copied.
The Battle of Prairie Grove was fought during the Civil War. There is a lot of history in the area where we live. The following pictures are some of the outbuildings and history of the battlefield. There are a lot of pictures.
This fireplace is in a house called a dogtrot house and the picture right after it is the porch. Great place to sit with a cool drink and get a nice breeze.
This is the springhouse where the well was.
This tells about the dogtrot house above.
There was a large tractor show with lots of really old tractors. There were 2 tractors there like the type my dad had when he farmed in Oklahoma. If my dad would still be living, he would have loved these tractors. He died at such a young age that he didn't get to enjoy anything later in life.
These are the 2 tractors like my dad had. He loved those tractors and babied them. The day they had to be sold was a very sad one for him and the whole family.
Here are some more pictures of very old tractors. Being a farm girl, all of these just fascinate me.
I hope you enjoyed my little corner of the world and a little bit that is going on this time of year. Our leaves are beginning to change, even though it is really too early for that.
This is some kind of a young sapling so that may be why it is changing early but we also have a lot of maples that are beginning to turn.
I hope each and everyone of you have a great holiday tomorrow and a great week.
