A Well-chosen Poem

Mark read this to me at our Valentine's dinner:

The Pasture

I'm going out to clean the pasture spring:
I'll only stop to rake the leaves away
(And wait to watch the water clear, I may):
I sha'n't be gone long.-You come too.

I'm going out to fetch the little calf
That's standing by the mother. It's so young
It totters when she licks it with her tongue.
I sha'n't be gone long.-You come too.

Point Betsy

Last summer, Mark's parents took us on a lovely tour of Northern Michigan. It's stunning!

Here we are, enjoying the wind and Petoskey stones on Lake Michigan. For the record, those are Mark's shorts, and I'm trying to keep them from blowing off!

This a favorite among the favorites of favorite Reagan destinations: Point Betsy Lighthouse.

Thanks Mom and Dad!
