Hug your loved ones tight and let them know you love them. You just never know.
Two disturbing deaths in our area in the past few days. One we knew, one I've never met.
The one we've never met was a young man, 41, with three young children. He was the brother of the best friend of one of my coworkers. He was killed in a farm accident on Wednesday evening. Many people out there don't consider farming a dangerous occupation. How wrong they are.
Also on Wednesday, the husband of one of my friends from church died suddenly. I'm not sure of the circumstances, I'm guessing his heart but I'm not going to call her up and ask the details. He was only 50, the same age as V, and leaves behind his lovely wife Brenda and 4 children ages 7-12 ( if I remember right). This was one of the guys V really liked talking to at church, we had borrowed power tools from them (they have a power post hole auger we used for the deck) and they have come over sledding on several occasions.
Just makes you think.... Life is so precious. Make the most of every moment.
I didn't get as much accomplished today as I had wished. I was a bit distracted. I've got to go throw sheets over the tomatoes, we've got a frost advisory tonight and I've finally got a bunch of big green tomatoes on.
