Image Spotlight: Sunfarm (Sally Ramsdell)
By Sharon Brown on June 20, 2011

Sally, or Sunfarm as we know her here on Cubits, is one of my Kentucky friends. She lives nearer to my mountain hometown than I do and sometimes I have to look at her pictures just to get a glimpse of my beloved hills. Uplifting, you bet! And it's even more uplifting to know Sally.

Lynn, it's rained for a short time here every day since the article was written. Isn't that something?

It surely is Sharon. Means we should be out dancing and celebrating life. I have never met Sally, yet my heart feels heavy and sad. We have no rain here for at least a week. Now after wanting sunshine for so long, I wish it would rain so I could go out and dance in it.

Burns, OR. What a lovely high desert area. So much beauty in it and known as cowboy country. : )
You must have had wonderful memories of that time Sally. What was your favorite thing about living there?

That we had a brand new school instead of the one with rattlesnakes.

Ah yes, Burns, Oregon, about 150 miles from me but with the same basic climate, and those rattlesnakes that turn up in the oddest places at unexpected times. Glad you got to go to the new school without them. The little one room schoolhouse down the road from me has probably had a few visitors. There are no steps into the school, and it is not a tight building. Heat was a woodstove, air conditioning was open windows. It was in use from 1915 until 1949. Somewhere I have a picture..... can't find it but I'll keep looking.
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

Oh,boy. My dad was telling us last weekend that he'd read about some couple who purchased a house that had been built over a snake den -- a natural cavern/tunnel where snakes had been overwintering probably for centuries. Snakes crawling around in the walls, finding snakes in bed with them, they were just innundated with snakes. They finally gave up and left.

That led to our recalling something about a school where they'd built a new addition that turned out to be on top of a similar snake den... the janitor had to make teh rounds every morning and catch all the snakes that had made their way through the ductwork during the night.

Was your school overrun like that, or are we just talking about the occasional snake looking for a warm corner to spend the night?

I like snakes, but I sure wouldn't want to be overrun with them -- especially not venomous ones! I can imagine how glad you all were to move to a new building, LOL.

Thanks for hanging out with us on these threads so we can visit with you, Sally. I know you've probably got a lot of arrangements to make or at least to put into motion, so I hope you've been able to get some good rest, also.

Joyanna is lobbying to go outside so we can check on the baby robins...

She shall not grow old as we that are left grow old
Age shall not weary her, nor the years condem
At the going down of the sun, and in the morning
We will remember her.

My thanks for meeting such a lovely person.
