Here are a few more pictures from my trip to Nebraska and the State Fair.
1. One day while Dad was at the local grain elevator a kitten wondered in. He brought it home for Mom. The kitten is just a doll!
I wanted to bring the kitten home; Mom offered to let me take it home. I didn’t think Molly and the kitten would be a good combination in a car for 8 hours. I know J would NOT have appreciated the surprise.
2. During the State Fair Mom and I enjoyed walking through the Dairy barn to look at the cows.
3. I like strolling through the chicken barn too. There are so many interesting chicken breeds.
While I was gone J picked up some new hens for me. A neighbor gal wanted to get rid of a few chickens and called to see if I could use some. My new girls are one year old red hens.
4. This is a Charolais bull from the Open Class Show.
Planting winter wheat was our big project this week. We were glad to have J’s folks home to lend an extra hand or two. We had a few minor breakdowns, but have another fall job checked off J’s list. To top it off we got a little rain yesterday afternoon and Tuesday night.
Sounds like we might start chopping corn tomorrow.
