Here's the birthday boy! 83 years young!
It was a lovely day. I'm not sure how warm it got here, but at the farm, it was a sunny, pleasant 68 degrees. Warm enough for shirt sleeves. The boys spent time outside, being boys:
Boys in the mud
Of course, they found the biggest puddle they could find and played in it. If I had been smart, I would have brought along a change of clothes for them. As it was, my Mom gave I11 a dry pair of socks to wear home. The boys were sailing corn husk boats and then sinking them with rocks.
V and J14 also had a grand time outside. My parents cut a large tree in the yard late last fall and some of it still remains. Mostly the brush and the logs too large to split. Since they had been at Kum Do earlier in the morning they decided to practice their moves. Of course, they were a bit more Errol Flynn than Korean stylized fighting:
Father daughter bonding??
But they had fun fencing on a log. We took my parents some of our beef as well on this trip. All Mom had asked for was soup bones. I couldn't see only giving them bones so I included some ground beef and a small roast.
All in all, a good, relaxing day at the farm. No pressure. We talked gardening and I found out from my Mom that she may have some old canning jars in storage that I can have. I'll have to check it out next time we're down there. I'm always up for more jars, especially since we're working to have 50% of our food home produced or locally grown.
Well, it's movie night here and I need to make the popcorn.
