I've been watching today's coverage of the political campaign and the abominable racism that is breaking out all over the US right now. For a few minutes today, it would be nice to be just an American - not a Democrat or Republican, not a Christian, a Jew, a Muslim or an atheist. For a minute today, light a candle for peace in your home. Pass it on.

Made a pilgrimage to the heartland this week. A LONG pilgrimage: it's a 19 hour, 1214 mile drive. We broke the trip up this year and stayed in the Toledo area (the half-way point) overnight. Thank goodness for clean, pet-friendly motels!
More of the driveway.
Corn crib at sunrise.
Random Iowa scenery.
The farmhouse from across the neighbor's fields.
Daisy loved being a farm dog!
The north fields.
Where pasta really comes from.
At least somebody slept on the ride home!
Back home, and longing for the freedom to roam the fields.
