My official! photographer! Jerry Waters turned up at the farm today, unexpected, as is his wont, while I was barely dragging pants on, and I hadn’t had a shower yet. This all reminded me of the first time I met Jerry many moons ago (see here). Jerry is always welcome, even if I’m not fully clothed or alert. Though I was a bit opposed at first when I realized why he’d come.


Last night, I told him that Rodney had given me this as one of his Christmas gifts to me.

It’s sort of like a shotgun bandolier photo frame. Really cool. (He got it at Tractor Supply, FYI.) It was very “us” because when he worked for me, part of the way we became close was when he was teaching me to use my new 20 gauge shotgun and going squirrel hunting. He told me it was for a picture of the two of us. And a while back, I’d had some reader requests for a picture of the two of us. And so I emailed Jerry last night and asked him if he would come take some pictures of me and Rodney. Of course, this meant that Jerry was here this morning before I barely had pants on and had still not taken a shower. Eventually, I decided, okay, he’s HERE, and Rodney and I got ourselves together, and here is the result, to share with you. (And one for that frame, too, of course. Guess which one.) We did the photo shoot on the tractor in the barn yard, because that was also apropo.

THANK YOU, JERRY WATERS!

    These are so neat, Suzanne. I come to your blog every day to see if you’ve written anything and love it when you do. Personally, I think #5 is perfect for the picture frame.

    Wishing you much happiness always! :snuggle:

    I vote for photo #3. Although, all of them could be a pick for that frame. I have read your blog 3 years this January, 2016. Read as many previous posts as I could since then, and also have a copy of your book. To see you and Rodney, this happy, makes me smile.

    #4 is my favorite, I love the way you are looking at each other with love in your eyes.
    Have a Happy and Healthy New Year! And keep writing those cute animal stories.

    I agree with Dana, it’s a toss up between #3 and #5, but I’d lean toward #5 if pressed, awesome kiss! ;)

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
