They Are Gone

It was with sad hearts that we watched Gina and Rollie roll down the driveway this morning.  We will miss them but understand that they need to get back to Mike and Pat’s and finish up a few things before Mike and Pat head to warmer country.  Rollie loading the 4 wheeler Rollie loading the 4 wheeler2 Rollie loading the 4 wheeler3 Rollie made loading that 4 wheeler look so easy.

Yesterday I alluded to Gina and Rollie’s excitement when they arrived at our house.  Well, for those of you who have not seen their blog—the excitement was—they spent over 30 minutes watching a bear and taking lots and lots of photos.  The bear was totally unconcerned that they were there and just kept on stuffing his face with chokecherries.  Just before lunch Rollie road down to their rig to get me some eggs and the bear was still there so we jumped in the truck and all went back to watch.Mr Bear

After lunch today I headed into town and picked some apples from the trees of a friend—Michael was able to help me peel and dice the apples and tomorrow I will make batches of caramel apple jam. 

The firewood fairies came again today, Claire brought us a truckload of wood and stacked it up in the pasture.  Michael is a little better each day and for that we are so thankful!


  1. Janna, Rollie said, he hopes that some of your caramel apple jam makes it to him this winter. Thanks for everything!!!! We sure do miss you both bunches and looking forward to more FUN TIMES ahead with y'all. Take care and our prayers will continue for Micheal and you!!!

    We Love Y'all,
    Gina & Rollie

  2. Okay, I goofed..Sorry Michael for my misspelling your name. Rollie is still driving and these lovely roads in Wyoming are quite bumpy : ) Praying that you are fit as a fiddle real soon.

    Love & Hugs,

  3. Now for some of that caramel apple jam I would walk through that den of bears.

  4. great shots of the bears today!!..sad to say so long for now!..but I am sure that you will meet again!

  5. Janna and Michael........we understand how sad you are to see Gina and Rollie leave. They are truly a blessing to everyone their lives touch. I know they are guided by God's hands.
    They arrived in New Castle, WY pretty late last evening and decided not to drive through Jewel Cave National Park after dark. It has some pretty crooked roads and would be a little tough to navigate in the dark. They should be here early this morning and we're waiting with open arms. Thank you for loving them and sharing your "little piece of Heaven" with them. Hugs............Pat
    PS: The bear pictures are unbelievable.

  6. Caramel apple jam, firewood, and Michael is getting better each day!! Sounds fantastic!

    Thank you for sharing your day with us. Love the bear pictures. =0)


  7. Oh the bear encounter looks exciting... but from a distance! Sooo those wood faeries keep on coming! What a lovely thing---- bet they will need some of that caramel apple jam, huh?
