Promotion 10/25/07
By William Foster
I have some great news for you. My wife, Christina, just got a promotion to a lead position at Cabelas and she got a raise as well. I did shoot a deer but it went on private property and I could do nothing about it. I felt so bad and almost quit hunting all together, but I'm not giving up. I will let you know when I get one though, I promise you that!

No Butterfly 10/23/07
By Susie Devries
Well, I guess I killed the caterpillar. It's dead, don't know what I did, but it's dead for sure. Dang it, I was looking forward to a beautiful black swallowtail in the spring. Maybe next time.

Green Acres 10/21/07
By Daryl Lawrence
Probably the last cut of the season, everything is going to start turning brown again, just in time for wintertime. The pastures needed shredded so we can see the deer walking across them easier, this time compliments of Jan's daddy's 1947 Farmall tractor, still works like a champ. You'd never know it's a 60 year old tractor, works better than I do! You can just hear me singing it now can't you??? Click here to see the pictures.

I'm sending two pictures I just took with my new camera I received on 10/08/07. It's a GE 7 mega pixels and I bought it because my 5 year old camera wasn't doing what I wanted it to do. Click here to see the pictures.
Wolverines 21 - Falcons 18 10/05/07
By Ryan Simmons
My football game was my best football game EVER! We played against the Falcons (undefeated team). We were down two scores, then we scored plus the extra point. They scored again, and then we scored again plus the extra point. The score was Wolverines 14 - Falcons 18. We recovered a fumble and scored. I had to go in for Brian on offense for the extra point play. I blocked the best player on their team and we scored the extra point. The Falcons had the ball with 47 seconds to play. They slowly marched down the field. They were on about the 12 yard line, second and seven, with 6 seconds to go. For the last play they ran a bootleg with their best player and he got around the corners with no one in front to stop him. I ran him down from behind and tackled him. I saved the game!! We won 21-18. My team mobbed me at the end. The coaches and parents made a tunnel for us to run through. I felt more than excited and proud. Click here to see my football picture.
Mineola, TX 10/04/07
By Barbara Lawrence
We drove to Mineola TX (about 40 miles one way) again today so we could eat at a buffet there that we saw yesterday and take these pictures. I decided, and Dee agreed, that we needed to take some more pictures being it was her last day to take advantage of this. The weather was much nicer as we didn't have near as much humidity as we had a couple of days ago. Note the "Missouri Pacific" sign on the end of the caboose - the line where Cleo worked.
