Early this morning, Bob's cousin Charlene and I walked together at nearby Skok Meadow, which was once the Buschmann family farm, just above my valley in Concord Township.
Sun was shining through the mist, and goldenrod filled all the open space of the former pastures.
Charlene was visiting with us from Atlanta, Georgia, where she thrives on daily walking. As a souvenir, I included her among the meadow photographs.
This was a peaceful slice of time for us. So I will share.
Bob and I will miss you when you return home, Charlene. And so will Mick, our dog, who has fallen in love with you.
