Empty Field

I love this empty field near my house. Not long ago it was an olive grove, but one day they (the infamous "they"!) came in with bulldozers and uprooted all the trees. That was very upsetting...the death of an olive tree seems sacrilegious around here! But I have come to appreciate the beauty of the field since then. I couldn't see it before, what with all trees in the way!

Ah, a case of "can't see the forest for the trees"? Happy Thanksgiving, Saretta!

Ok, Valeria, I'll go check you out!

Happy Thanksgiving to you, too, Chuck! It's not a holiday here, so no one has the day off from work today, but we'll have a belated turkey day on Sunday!

It is a lovely field, and HAPPY TURKY DAY! I am sure you will bring some celebration to Molfetta!

even though a field is q delight for the eyes, the death of olive trees seems both sacrilegious and criminal!!

sometimes it helps to not know what came before, eh????
