 After publishing Of Mice and Men I realized how long it has been, since I have successfully posted anything, so here is a quick update.   The last 10 days of June, my family and I went on Vacation to Montana.  We went with the purpose of visiting all the relatives in that state, and seeing the family farm in Ft. Benton, which Manny (my husband) had not seen in 15+ years, and I had never seen.  Overall, it was a successful trip, as we accomplished 95% of what we set out to do.

When we got home, the garden needed to be dealt with, as it had snowed the week before we left on vacation, and therefore planting was not done…but now the corn is up (hopefully it will have ripe ears before it freezes), and we have had salad every day for the last two weeks.

Friendships and community events have also kept us busy. 

Before we left on vacation, Manny had let a couple, who are full time RVer’s, set up their camper on out property, with the understanding that he was to find a job and a campground to move into by the time we got back.  I was not real thrilled about this, but it was not my decision.  However, while we were gone the he up and died.  His widow is still here, but will be leaving soon, as town laws only allow limited RV use.

Independence Day, this town had its first ever parade, and we were invited to ride on the National Guard float, which we did, and greatly enjoyed. 

Another change:  instead of using my children’s initials in blogs, I am going to call them by the pet names of Adam, Benjamin, Caleb, Daniel, and Gideon, in accordance with my favorite movie.


Hello world!
