Hasn’t this cooler weather been enjoyable?
We were fortunate to enjoy the company of our second born granddaughter, Casey Lynn Barr over the weekend. Sunday morning we were joined by daughter, Shelley and son-in-law, Mark Adams. Everyone pitched in and prepared a wonderful late breakfast.
In the afternoon Muggs and Peggy Ramsey stopped by. Then Hurshel and Rena Smallwood surprised us with a visit. They are planning their “last yard sale.” Better not miss this one!

Edwin Rogers and Rick Turkelson have finished their water pond project here at the house. If you’re in the vicinity stop by and see it. We’re quite pleased.
