It Makes Me Feel Like I Live In The Country

The neighbor calls me up; she has a message for her son, could I drive down to the back pasture at the Jones place where Warren is raking hay and give it to him?

I did, of course.

Even though I live in the country, I spend a lot of my time in my home office connected to a computer or driving into Springfield and doing things in the (small) city. So I forget where I really am.

I must need to sit on my back deck a couple more nights and watch the luciernagas or the wah-wah-taysee at sunset, when it’s quiet and the wildlife come out. Although clearly I’ve done that, since I learned the word wah-wah-taysee from “The Song of Hiawatha” when I was reading it last night at sunset. Luciernaga I learned some time ago.

Both words mean “firefly.” But the one from Sesame Street is not my favorite firefly song, as you might guess.

What was my point? Probably that I shouldn’t be sitting connected to a computer right now.
