I Like Thursday #33

 Another week has passed,  and it was great. 

We went jeeping in beautiful Moab!  This trail is called Steel Bender, well, this is the end of it after all the obstacles.  I just thought it was beautiful.

The photo below doesn't look like much, but my husband nearly tipped the truck over on its side - super steep!

My friend Hazel died.  She was 92 and still serving others. It was a privilege to be asked to give a tribute at her funeral. 

They gave her a fireman's last call because back in the day she was one of our town's first fire fighters.  She owned a store across the street from the fire station.  The truck in the photo was the actual one she learned to drive, restored now  It would only move 25 mph, so she would go ring the siren and take the truck out to the fire while the women gathered the men in from the fields. One person who spoke at the funeral said she was a landmark, and she was.  I miss her, but I am happy that she can be free of her aged body.

They took her body to the cemetery in the fire truck - what a tribute!
