Tina - the nice lady

Tonight while at the homestead I noticed that a lady and a little boy (about 3 years old) were standing on the sidewalk looking down into the lot and the lady was talking to the little boy quite excitedly. I waved my hand and motioned for her to come down and she was very excited.

She saw the goats (munching on the ditchbank) and almost chortled with delight. The little boy said that he liked the chickens and she said, "No, they are goats" and he looked at her very strangely. I pointed out the chickens and she again reacted with surprised euphoria (Ariel's choice of words) and said that she couldn't believe how much land there was here and how wonderful it was.

I gave her a brief tour and she kept saying how amazing everything was and that this was the type of place she had always dreamed of. I told her that my granddaughters had named the place "Terrabella" (actually first it was TerraNina but it doesn't have the "ring" that Terrabella has and so we adjusted it just a bit) and that the bridge over the ditch was the "Bridge to Terrabella"

I had put three new gnomes in the garden and the little boy (named Randy) had fun spotting them. What a great evening to have my soul fed with her joy. I invited her back and I will have to find out more about her.

Who would have guessed?

I remember the first time that Dad brought home a computer that we could actually play a game on. Uncle Duane had showed off his "Pong" game that could be viewed on his tv and I thought it was just about the most amazing thing I had ever seen. Hey, I was astounded when the electric typewriter came out!!! I actually owned one in college! The distance that computers and internet and now blogging have come could never have been anticipated back in the days of pong.
