Being...Ben

I did not personally see the following story, but it is supposed to be true and happened over 70-years-ago in DeKalb County. There was a family that had three girls who were alleged to be possessed by the devil or maybe a witch.

It was so beautiful – full of possibilities. His imagination had no bounds where the pellet gun was concerned. He’d been shot in the back with one not long ago; it didn’t really hurt, but it was fun playing with those pellet guns. He wondered how many birds he could shoot with one. And if his siblings annoyed him too much, he could always threaten to shoot them. It wouldn’t really hurt them after all.

Dry Creek Flashes

Looking out over the farm we see the snow and ice lingering on and remember the old tale of snow that lies around just waiting on another one. We do not wish for any more snow or ice this winter. The beautiful vision of our porch being graced with ferns and blooming flowers of spring is dancing around in my head.

"And in other news, traffic was snarled in both east-bound and west-bound lanes of Hwy 70 today when a renegade pug evaded arrest. Despite its diminutive stature, the pug managed to evade authorities and bring traffic to a halt for approximately 10 minutes as both city policemen and the public attempted to capture said pug. The pug finally decided someone was trustworthy and turned himself in. Upon his capture, traffic was clear and there were many smiling faces who were witness to the scene."

Dry Creek Flashes

 

The Dry Creek Valley is completely covered in ice and snow. Blanketed in white, the birds and deer are out scratching the ground in search of food. We are tucked in our easy chair with a warm cup of coffee, watching a red cardinal sneak around for a bite of Fluffy the cat’s food. Each cardinal has his feathers puffed out to protect them from the cold. We feed our birds with numerous bird feeders, but they still are natural hunters always looking for a food source to survive.

The Amen Corner

 

Our last two winters have been mild so maybe we shouldn't complain about this month's snow and ice. The ice made the roads at a risk. I admire the public servants who kept our roads safe and the rural mail carriers who ran their routes. Nevertheless, it will be a winter to remember.

This is another mostly true story. There was a family that seems to be a little poorer than most everybody else in the community. Sometimes they would only have the staple of potatoes and beans to eat.
