Is That a Costume, or Your Real Clothes

Not to much new going on out here. The weather is warming up a bit, it hit 40 today. I'm ready for spring and so are the cows. The best part about farming is being able to spend time with my
Boys. Today Little John spent some time in the barn with papa. We put down the bedding together, fed the corn meal, petted the turkey, and started fleshing some coon hides that were in the freezer. Then he helped feed the hay, fed some calves their milk, made a collection of chicken feathers, found a new walking stick, helped milk a few cows, gathered some eggs and then went up to the house to tell everyone about his day. Now that is an average day for a 2 and a half year old kid at our place. Ask John who "sponge bob" is and he'll say he doesn't know. He can tell you his favorite breed of horse, the difference between a cow and a heifer, and tell you that "Johnny serves King Jesus!". Funny story......This fall Johnny and I were at the store. It was the latter part of October and we were walking along minding our own, when a lady says "Awe, look they are dressed up for Halloween....Are you supposed to be farmers?" Well you know that you are out of touch with fashion world when you and the boy put on your good overalls and people think its a costume!

Prayer Request
Abby has gone to the hospital for emergency surgery. She is all right according to the last report. Please keep her and John and the kids in your prayers.

Abby is doing good. She and the kids are out here in Nanticoke recovering at her folks. I'll stop by and see them today.

Glad to hear that, Scott. Tell her we said hey.

That story of you and the boys is hilarious!

Thanks for the thoughts and the prayers. I wish I could be down in Nanticoke, too (Who'd of thought that I would actually want to be in Nanticoke?), but heavy school work and my job away from home keeps me here in Buffalo.
But it seemed best to send Abigail and the girls away to where her mother and the rest of her extended family could best take care of her while she recovers.
Don't let them come back here until Little John has shown Mildred around the farm!
