"At last"refers to the fact that I can now reenter the family blogsphere... I was able to resolve the problem of my forgotten password. However, what is not so easily resolved is how to enter the conversation with such witty and comical contributors! Where did you guys come from????
I will just have to content myself with newsy updates. However, most of the interesting updates that I would consider posting are already known to you because YOU are the source of the content! The summer flew by and I am eternally grateful for all of the time we had together.
We had a great weekend with Jane and Rick too. Although Rick avoided the primaries for "health" reasons, with the help of his new blackberry, we were on top of all of the headlines and found a source for jubilation. We also introduced them to Corn Hole, which they still can not believe is really named Corn Hole. We had many "couple" competitions, often under the stars and spotlights, but in reality the real competitors were Jane and David. Rick and I were very inconsistent with our tosses....he can only see with one eye and I can only,well, not toss very well. Once they arrived home, they found a game to purchase online, but at THEIR house, it will be called "Corn Toss".
We have Grandma Margaret with us for a few days. I have at various intervals been her mother, her guest, "that woman", her nurse, etc..etc.. She has been very easy to care for and it has been nice to slow the pace here a little.
Probably the most exciting recent news is the artificial insemination of one of our cows. Dad has a new friend that has that particular expertise and was willing to take on the job. The other two will soon be ready. Hopefully, this venture will be successful. I read an article today about a "traveling slaughterhouse" that has been approved by the FDA and is staffed with the mandatory FDA inspector. An interesting enterprise. Our garden is full of pumpkins, tomatoes, and okra (which we tried to eat tonight but it was awful....could hardly chew it so we ended up throwing it out!). Our neighbors have been very generous with their sweetcorn after hearing about the dogs destroying our crop.
