Have you caught the Venus and Jupiter show this week? The two planets are said to be the closest today, March 15. I just stepped outside with my camera and got this quick shot as the clouds were moving in.

In answer to a question about yesterday's photo. The two little boys with me were neighbors in our farming community where I grew up. We were at a birthday party at J's house, the boy on the right, who had turned 4 years old. S, the boy on the left, and I were 3 at the time of the photo. We all attended the same one room country school. S and I went through all 12 years of school together and even went on to the same college. No, we didn't plan it that way. I actually had a crush on J at one time in my younger days and he gave me my first kiss. He even told me one time when we were in grade school that if he didn't love Nan so much, he might marry me! J and Nan were childhood sweethearts who married and had 2 beautiful daughters, one of which was in my daughter's class and they were friends! S moved away after college and became an airline pilot who flew out of St. Louis and I understand he had a nice family, too. Both were really nice guys (and handsome, I might add) who did well and had wonderful families, the sad news is that J passed away a few years ago of a brain aneurysm.
As to what I had for dinner yesterday for my birthday. Mexican food! I had a Chicken Fajita and couldn't eat it all, so I finished the rest for breakfast this morning. It was yummy both times! I'm still coughing a lot and have zero energy, but there's nothing wrong with my appetite. ;-)
One more thing...I actually got off the property today and went to the chiropractor who is helping my aching back a lot. More about him another day. Anyway, after that appt. was over, I headed to Wally World and got a few necessary items and couldn't help noticing how Spring has sprung since I've been in the house for all these many days sick! The forsythia is blooming beautifully, the Bradford Pears and other spring trees are in full bloom, the daffodils and other spring flowers are blooming! It was wonderful seeing all these signs of Spring! How is Spring looking in your neighborhood? Have you had to mow the lawn yet? It won't be long here!
Until next time...
