This evening Jim said something that I used to hear my Grandpa say to my Grandma every Sunday...
....Let's go for a drive.
I have to admit I had ulterior motives for going as I jumped up and said "let's go"! The light and colors were absolutely beautiful tonight and was anxious to see if I could capture them with my camera. Bouncing along on the dusty roads, we visited and joked with each other, in only a way that true friends who have been together for 15 years, could. My man had to confess he had ulterior motives too as he pulled out the binoculars. I should have known! Deer hunting is just around the corner and we were scouting for a big'en.
We chatted about the farmers in the fields, and even the birds. And sometimes we didn't talk at all. There is a silence between us but not an uncomfortable one. The kind were you can think random thoughts and be at peace with it because at that moment, all is right with the world. How could it not be? I was with my best friend, bouncing down a dusty dirt road.
