I am fortunate to have had this old dinner bell passed down to me. In my mother's family for generations, it now stands sentry here at the farmette.
Storms and heavy, flooding rains are moving into our area and staying for the next twenty-four hours. The last time we had such rains the Man-child paddled the canoe around the pasture.
If that happens again I just might have to run out and ring the bell myself.
"The temple bell stops, but I still hear the ringing from the flowers."
