I am pleased to have Arthur sit

on my lawn for the Old Home Day parade.

He and Millie were good friends to my parents.

I know he and Peter feel quite alone

now that she is gone.

I know it has been a difficult year for Peter,

what with the surgery on his hips and the brief

failed marriage, but they have the church people

to help and they know everyone.

Arthur is one of the last people to have cows in town.

I love to see the tin roof on his barn reflect

the sunset off the mountain.

Jenny did a good job too.

She got two pictures of Peter driving the tractor.
