1. As I walked back to our car in the parking lot at the Gettysburg Walmart, I heard surprising crystal clear musical notes near-by. I looked around following the sound. Then I spied a middle-aged man sitting behind the wheel, with the window down in his parked car. He was playing a tune on his recorder.
2. A PA vegetable stand yielded red ripe homegrown tomatoes, dark green local cucumbers and small richly purple eggplants fresh from someone's garden. Yum!
At the last minute I added a basket of bright green lima beans and ears of yellow corn. A delicious veggie dinner ahead.
3. We drove back to Maryland in the golden light of sunset.
There was a lot in-between but these are a few details that are worth keeping to savor the day.
Like separating the wheat from the chafe.
