O the Raggedy Man, he works fer Pa;
An' he's the bestest man ever you saw.
He comes to our house every day,
An' waters the horses, an' feeds 'em hay;
An' he opens the shed, an' we all ist laugh
When he drives out our little old wobble-ly calf;
An' nen, ef our hired girl says he can,
he milks the cow fer 'Lizabuth Ann.
Ain't he a' awful good Raggedy Man?
Raggedy, Raggedy, Raggedy Man.

Why, the Raggedy Man, he ist so good,
He splits the kindlin' an' chops the wood;
An' nen he spades in our garden, too,
An' does most things 'at boys can't do.
He climbed clean up in our big 'ole tree
An' shooked a' apple down fer me
An' 'nother 'n', too, fer 'Lizabuth Ann
An' 'nother 'n', too, fer The Raggedy Man.
Ain't he a' awfully kind Raggedy Man?
Raggedy, Raggedy, Raggedy Man.

Once when he wuz makin' a bow-'n'-arry fer me
Says "When you get big like your Pa is
Air you goin' to have a fine store like his?
An' be a rich merchunt an' wear fine clothes?
Er, what air you goin' to be, goodness knows?"
An' nen he laughed at 'Lizabuth Ann,
An' I says "'M goin' to be a Raggedy Man!
I'm ist go' to be a nice Raggedy Man!"
Raggedy, Raggedy, Raggedy Man.

"A babe in the house is a well-spring for pleasure, a messenger of peace and love, a resting place for innocence on earth, a link between angels and men" ~Martin Fraquhar Tupper
When a baby is looking past you, could it be there's an angel behind you? And when they look into a tree and are captured by the movement of the wind, could it be they see what we have lost sight of? Perhaps that is why then, that we find peace in taking the time to watch the same when we feel its caress upon our face.

"Wherever they go,
and whatever happens
to them on the way,
in that enchanted place
on top of the world,
two little blondes
will always
be playing.”
to a playmate,
a best friend,
a forever friend.
Thank you for taking time for me.

My computer appears to be having some serious problems, so Brandon will be looking at it tomorrow for me. I will most likely be offline for several days, just in case you're here and wondering why you haven't seen anything new written lately. This is why.

Have a restful tomorrow and a really great week. Oh yeah, and don't forget to look for something to laugh about, someone to hug, a person to help, and a comfy spot to lay your head~

I felt the need to write that you are missed and that I've thought of you today and that I've wondered how your day has been. While putting together thoughts and pictures for today's blog on Faith, Family & Friends, I kept scrolling by pictures of you. But these pictures weren't taken today or even yesterday. There are pictures of the others, but so few of you. This really must be corrected. You, me. Two people famous for NOT wanting our pictures taken.

Stacey took this one. And it's so you. I feel you're looking right at me. Taken at the fair. A place you love. With those you love. You're relaxed. Happy. Well, as happy as one can be in scorching heat with little air. But you've never been one to complain.

So~the next time we're together I am going to take more snapshots of you. To remind me of what I'm missing when I'm not with you. I love you, peanutbutter.
