People 'Round These Parts

(c) Misty DawnS

Before you ask - I have absolutely NO idea what this little bitty wildflower is technically called. You see, I was out walking around our pond, and I discovered this little beauty. It is quite an unusual flower to me, because it looks as if it is shriveled up, until you look closer to discover its real beauty.

Things have been absolutely crazy and hectic at work. I must admit, however, that I do enjoy the customers. I enjoy meeting and recognizing everyone. I enjoy listening to their conversations, whether they be about the weather, farming, the equipment they use in the fields, or the saddles they are using on their horses. I enjoy their small-town friendliness and sense of humor... such as when an elderly gentleman will give me a great big smile and say "Well Honey, it sure seems like your air conditioner isn't working very well today.", because he knows full-well that I have, in fact, no air conditioner, and he is just hoping my boss will overhear and make the office more comfortable. The people here are fantastic... true, genuine, funny, and caring. That's what keeps me going... the people and the beauty of this area.

It's a beautiful flower that I've never seen before either.

I'm sorry that you don't have air conditioning, but I'm thrilled that you love working with your co-workers. That's so important. Have a great day sweetie. Big hug and lotsa lovies. :)

D...

Perfect commentary on small town living. I love it!

I'm sorry. There is no way I could work without air conditioning. Of course, I live in the devil's armpit. But, anyway, how do you do it?

Well no matter what the name of that here little flower is, it's awful darned pretty.

Oh, and there's no way I could work without air-conditioning without calling some other 911 center and telling them that MY emergency was sweating to death!

I just love your itty bitty wildflower, whatever its real name may be.

Glad you enjoy the people and can stand the heat. I don't mind dry heat, but NJ is all humid and sweaty, so I stay indoors until early evening. Or early morning.
