Simple Country Life

There are so many benefits to living in the country.  You are surrounded by the sights and sounds of nature.  The peace and quiet of chirping birds, deer in the meadows, the beautiful vistas of the sky.

Sometimes you find yourself in the middle of nowhere; and sometimes in the middle of nowhere, you find yourself.  Author Unknown

I seldom see a windmill here in the Southeast U.S.  When I lived in the Western part of the U.S. windmills were everywhere.  Windmills make me think of the years gone by, a simpler time in life, my grandparents era.
