Breath-taking. I have never seen such yellow in the sky! No wonder they call Cali "the golden state".

we did - Frank ended up on a combine, the first time since the accident ;o)
You can see him on the machine in the attached photo.

It wouldn't have been so easy to catch them, if Frank didn't have the telemetry ;o)

I had heard many times that you could actually feel seasick if you looked at a field of wheat. I didn't believe it until I went over to Eastern Washington to visit a friend. Sure enough, we went out to the field, and guess who got sick. Yup. The non-believer.

The song America The Beautiful says it all. "Amber waves of grain." And that field was as far as the eye could see.

Alabaster is a stone. And I don't ask God to shed his grace on me. Only my family and those I care about.
