Not on the Family Farm….this weekend, anyway

Not much happening at Mom’s farm this weekend. I am sure there is plenty of work being done in the background, all prep work for the upcoming planting season.

A disclaimer for this post, it is not about Mom’s farm, but about a road trip through the Spoon River Valley in West Central Illinois. My wife Susan and I, broke away from our “normal” lives and spent the weekend driving around such places as Canton, Bushnell, Cuba, London Mills, Havana, Lewiston, Bernedotte and Ellisville Illinois. The area is full of beautiful farms, rolling fields of corn and soybeans. You can feel the good old fashioned family values that make up farm country. It is a comfortable and beautiful place to visit.

Being able to experience a little bit of farm life, and to be able to visit area’s that are rich in farm history and culture, is one of life’s treasures that I wish everybody could experience and appreciate. Maybe the world would be a little better for it…… Just my opinion.

You can just see the barn peaking out above the roadway
somewhere on the Spoon River Drive in West Central Illinois

    You are right, Rob. Everyone could use that reset. Beatiful pictures.
