She Has A Good Eye...

My oldest sister, Marcy, is the photographer.  Most of the photos you see are by her.  One thing you rarely get to see is a picture of Marcy. 

On my morning walk, we met and I got a chance to take some pictures of this wonderful sister of mine.
Marcy is an animal, farm, flower lover.  She is the who preserves all the food that is grown here and, man, can she cook!  Marcy is our matriarch.
 Marcy is a retired school teacher and has a home At The Farm next door to us.  She also, in her spare time, cares for my youngest grandson while my youngest daughter is attending nursing school.
She is the spoiler of children, adults and animals alike.  We all know who feeds us!
Marcy could not get away from the horses.
They all wanted loving...
and apple, pear and peach peelings,
and corn on the cob,
and corn fodder.
I distracted the horses
so Marcy could continue
her morning walk.

Wish my sis lived next door... she's my bestest friend in the whole world and I miss her. She's a good 2 hrs away which isn't really so far, but I can't just run next door or across town...

tell her that she takes great pictures!
