This shot reminds me of the phrase, "Let my people go."
Just because the sunflowers grew so tall, someone was afraid they were going to bend over. I think
that is what nature intended. These are not grown in a field for harvesting.
They are not the hardy plants that produce those wonderful seeds.
They were just fun to plant and see them grow.

I was thinking yesterday that I don't hear from many of my friends. We've always had the phone but now emails are so past tense that we don't use them much anymore. There is texting which I do with our sons and granddaughters but not with friends. When I mentioned all this to L., he said, "Do you ever call them?" That shut me up.

Out and about earlier this morning to buy spider spray. There are too many webs where we want to be. On the way back home, we stopped at the Golden Arches and ordered L. a large chocolate milk shake. $3.49. Please pull forward. Fourth in line we arrived at the window and paid. Pull forward to serving window. Clerk says, "You wanted the mocha with no cream?" No, a large chocolate milk shake. "Oh. We can't do that now. Could I get you something else?" "I'll take the mocha." "No, that's for someone else." "No, just my money back, I guess." "Please pull forward." In my rear view mirror I saw them hand out another mocha with no cream on top to the lady in the following car. They could have given that to me instead of dumping it! When the apologetic young man gave us our money, he explained the machine wasn't working - the reason they couldn't "do that now" was not the hour of the day (10:00 a.m.) I told him they might tell the order taker that! She obviously didn't know about the malfunction. Another day in the life of little inefficiencies because of our dependence on machines....even milk shake makers.
