Forgot the pictures

Where oh where have the little ones gone.

Fifteen Nannies, no Billies, again.

Going to the barn.

Saturday, Fifteen and counting

Today, ALL the kids, that is ALLLLL the kids went to SDC. and ALL the grandparents, ALL the grandparents did not.

Kids had a great time.

I took George to Mediquick because he has been feeling bad.  They gave him a shot and pills.  He is feeling much better tonight.

And, Aunt Helen and Greg caught the five little billy goats and took them off to market.  Helen said it was dumb and Dumber.  I told them there were 5 billies, but either they could not remember how many or could not count to 5.  They caught all the little ones, twice, before they were satisfied they had all the billies.  We wanted to get rid of the billies before Bertha and Little Grey got bred again so they could have a rest.  Greg says he is never doing this with Helen again unless he gets to be Boss.

All in all, a very good day.

Back to work in one more day.

We took flowers to Alpena and put them on the graves.

The purple one on Janet's grave.

And saddles on these two.  They were beautiful.


Sunrise over Dry Creek.

George and I mowed the cemetery this morning.  It looks much better.

And, Helen went to the airport to get Missy.  They are here now, her and the two boys.  Krissy is making spaghetti for all of us.

On the way home, Helen picked up her red car.  She got a new windshield in it.

It has rained a tad today, but not bad.  I took a 3 hour nap after the cemetery work.

If anyone is hungry, come on over.  We have a fridge full of left overs.
