This just made me smile.

Good times with the grandkids - - Took Arlyn & Audrey to our church skating party Saturday evening. Arlyn is getting quite good. Audrey a little timid on skates, enjoys the social side more. Skating rinks just aren’t the same as the one I used to skate on in St. John. Wondering how many of our readers got to enjoy the wavy wooden floor of the old rink? I was so proud of having my very own skates, Chicago brand I believe. And it seems like most of the music they played was organ music. Am I right? Well, those days are gone. Today its fun to even be a spectator and watch the light show and try to find your kids when the fog machine comes on.

Celebrity interview with Pages, the library cat in Valley Center. She has her own blog, reads The Eagle and doesn’t like the paparazzi to get too close. (Nearly bit me). She also stomped out of the interview and hid out in the bathroom.

My one and only tomato plant is really producing some juicy, delicious tomatoes.  So excited to have success with a patio tomato.

Singing in the rain. I spotted this little cardinal “enjoying” some of the recent rains we’ve been having.

Trip down memory lane. This is how I remember harvest. This video from the 1950s was shot near Salina. In theory, the Tanner wheat harvest didn’t stray too much from this method of harvest until at least the 1970s or 1980s when my brother John secured a combine with a cab on it.
