Re: checking in / happy fall!


Thanks so much Zem.  Every prayer and good thought helps our young men and women over there.  I totally believe that.

  Jesse, I think about Neal every day, and I'm sending him and all our loved 
ones in the Middle East protection everyday. I look forward to the safe 
return of all of them. I cannot imagine how stressful it must be for their 
families.

Today I'm off to the ag center for pumpkin picking and washing. Our 
ornamental horticulturist raises over 80 varieties of pumpkins every year. 
This will be a good day.
