Many of you have asked where in the world I've been.

All I know is that after 7 plus years of blogging and a different lappy, which I don’t like, I seem to have lost my blogging fervor.

Someday, when you least expect it, I will post again.

For those of you still waiting I say thank you.

Meanwhile, I am rather prolific on twitter. Find me: @KeethaB

A Little Nostalgia in My City

Yesterday Fisherhubby e-mailed me a link to this photo on Pinterest.

He pins, I do not.  

He often talks to me through e-mails rather than live and in person.

It's all good,  e-mail is one of my "love languages."
The message from Fisherhubby to go with the photo was:

"Hay, will you marry me?"

That made me smile.

For you see, on a fall afternoon in 1974 while Fisherhubby and I were in his grandparents' hay mow he popped the question.

Of course, he wasn't YET Fisherhubby - - - he was Tennisguy or Surferdude then.

I said yes, and the rest is history.

Only thing, I don't remember all those sun diamonds shining through the chinks in the barn wall.

So sweet! Thanks for your comment. When I lived in New Hampshire twenty degrees was warm and folks walked around in open jackets. Now I'm cold at forty degrees.

Tara R. said...

That is a very cool photo, and a sweet proposal.

Pam said...

Greg proposed to you in a hay mow? How cool is that, and how did I not know! The picture brings back lots of good childhood memories from various Wisconsin farms.

What a romantic hubby you have! And I can't believe you don't pin! You have to. It is so much fun and soooo addictive.:)
PS That Downton ending las night through me for a loop! I with you. If one more person dies I'm done! said...

That's very sweet, Keetha, and a striking photo.

Sorry I haven't been around for SIMC lately. I have camera issues, and I'm also trying to catch DuPont in his February garb. My timing's been off.


Traci Marie Wolf said...

Your posts are ALWAYS full of gems. First of all, he pins!!! That's priceless.

Email is one of my love languages as well, which makes blogging perfect for us. I, as a matter of fact, saved a few of our (my husband and my) I.M.s from when we met.

Aww, such a sweet story. :-D

Erin said...

That is a great story! And what a beautiful picture. I'm going to have to start following FH on Pinterest if I can find him! :)

Tami said...

I love the humor along with the romanticism. Nice pic too!

Anita Johnson said...

So glad you said yes. What a sweet story too!

Keri said...

AWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!! I love this!!!!

Apparently even at 36 years old, children crave to see affection between their parents. :)

I love you both so much and am SOOOO blessed you said "yes"!

podso said...

WOW ! Your husband is a romantic! How beautiful and thoughtful of him. A true renaissance man (google it).

Ann in the UP said...

That's very sweet! I got a very sweet valentine from Good Guy this year. Not syrupy or sappy but very sweet.

Unknown said...

That's sweet! Love the sun shining through the walls. Of course if it were your barn you might not but its a lovely photo op

Coloring Outside the Lines said...
