On our way home from Charlie and Yolanda's house (my in-laws) we stopped in Walton. Here's a picture of the "big yellow house". It looks like a cute family lives there now. The yard still looks great. (The kids were playing on a great swingset outside so I didn't think taking a photo with them in the yard was appropriate!) Then there's the good ol' IN sunsets. The sun just sinks like a giant fireball into the flat ground. It's still amazing. It's strange to drive through Walton now. Nothing has really changed-- and nothing ever will. It's rather sad. Old friends of mine still living in the area are really struggling with every life issue you can imagine. It just makes me wonder why they never ventured out -- even Indy isn't too far to come back and visit family. Anyway, I hate to say it, but I think when our family moved away, we took the life of the town with it! It needs something big and rather frightening -- like all of us-- to liven it up a little!
