Theres Star and shes running to meet you. Shes in the front part of the Land that Ed & I like to call the front yard - its a big one and she used to Love playing and running all over it with us. We used to throw her sticks as far as we can, and she would either run and catch it as it fell, or run to catch it and make sure it wasnt going to jump up and start running away with its stick legs Now after Stars Operation on her side, she cant run anymore or play outside or jump up on something so its all a nice memory for her; as she stays inside the house or goes out and in all day to lay outside in the heat and listen to the Neigbors animals barking, then inside for some cool floor sleep time. Ed and I though,, we like to walk to the Willow Tree that grows right at the front of this front yard (its over 100 years old & still smiling). When its nice out, and theres not a lot of cars whipping by, its the perfect place to sit and cry. Cry because everyone I know or Ive met, drives either a truck, van or car and those vehicles are a big contribution to destroying the air we breath, including this land we live on.. If only they knew that and tried not to drive around so much, but I know they need those mechanical fast, noisy, polluting vehicles so I cant really be mad at them can I?? Wow does it make me sick when I see any vehicle.. Im not judging anyone, Im simply saying its sick to watch those exhausts go up in my air, and know that the oil drips onto the ground and goes down into my beautiful Green Earth. Im okay with Ed going out because he doesnt go out more than 3 or 4 times a week but people out there go out everyday (many times a day) with their vehicles and I cant stand that. Oh well, back to the Land and safe and sound with me he comes & we sit and admire the beautiful part of the world for the rest of the day,,, Our Land of Lusciousness.
