THE HILLS ARE ALIVE by Granny Annie
This was a perfect day to leave my cottage after being in quarantine. A nice walk would be bliss. It was just a small hill but a place of beauty covered by mosses. My heart demanded that I make the climb. Wearing my good Wellington Boots, the journey began.
It was a joy to view the sedge in bloom. There were horses being exercised on the heath. They seemed to be involved in a race.
I loved to view the murmuration taking place above me. The birds created art of their own.I was concentrating on the starlings and I failed to see the fissure in my path. My boots got caught in the split earth I could not get my foot out of the boot. It had twisted and latched on. It would surely take the strength of Ajax to free me. The sky was darkening and the weather would soon turn much colder. I was glad the hedge wall nearby created a windbreak that would keep me from freezing.
I could hear the thresh of wheat and called loudly for the workers. Hopefully they would come and free me from this dilemma. I tore at the boot and could not pull my foot out. Suddenly I was inspired to speak to the hill and pat the soft dirt. “Please let me go” I begged. The earth slowly moved and opened wide to allow my release.

LOVED THE RAKE by Granny Annie
Define someone who is a “Rake”
A rake is a lovable scoundrel. There's a wide spectrum of rakes. Usually, a rake is someone who has lots of experience with women and finds a number of relationships an art.
How was I to know this handsome fellow was first attracted to my shiny, chrome yellow '56 Studebaker? To me it was just a shell to get around in. I never dreamed my car's appeal would turn into a toxic coincidence. He did not own a car so I was his transportation, plus I loaned him my Studebaker often, never dreaming who he was visiting.
I named my car Daffodil and Rake and I had many a bevy of fun times during every jaunt. This car did not have a radio so Rake would charm me with his beautiful singing voice. Without GPS in those days, we had to rely on a map to take us new places. Yes once we even ended up stuck in a turnip patch. It was all good until one of his many girlfriends came knocking on Daffodil's windows that were covered with frost demanding to know who I was.
Nope, I believed every explanation and married Rake. Though he was a scoundrel, he gave me two wonderful children and no regrets.

2022 NEW YEAR BIRDS
I have barn cats and have not been able to put out feeders for the birds. While my kids were here they put up a fence outside for their dogs. Then they added a small fence around my propane tank and a tree. The put up feeders and I loved watching the birds. When my kids left they took their feeders and I was so sad watching the birds appear looking for the food. Since it was a well enclosed area, I bought my own feeder and keep it filled. It is such a joy to watch the beautiful birds out my kitchen window and have yet to see a cat go in the area.
