Play it, Jen

Every good movie has a piano player somewhere in the background--
sometimes seen, usually unseen.
Seldom really noticed.
The feeling, the very soul of a scene, is created by that person tinkering at the keys.
It has been said, "All the world's a stage."
Well then...Play it, Jen.

I'm a California Native transplanted to the Missouri Ozarks. I've learned how to chase cows in high heels and load hay faster than you can say "Coco Chanel." These are some of our pictures and stories of living in a land with breath-taking beauty and adventure around every bend.

Day Fire

We have a fire burning in an area rather nearby us. It started on Labor Day and they have yet to get control over it. The winds have been taking the smoke mostly towards the L.A. basin. The local news has had lots of fun showing satellite pictures of the huge plume of smoke over a large part of the "southland" area. Yesterday the winds shifted and the smoke started coming back our direction. The kids played out under a blood red sun yesterday afternoon. The sky is full of what looks like dirty clouds but is actually smoke drifting over us. My sister just sent along this picture to me. Her husband works right in the area that this fire is burning.

The thing is still burning!!! Unbelievable. Winds kicked up a lot yesterday and drove the thing wild again. We watch the planes fly back and forth every day but still the sheet of smoke hangs over us. They've had to evacuate a lot of people with respiratory problems, they've told sensitive people with asthma and the like to get out of the area.
