I have sensed a cut back in my blogging activity since mid August, both in the amount of time I have to write and the time I have to post comments on other blogs, in large measure due to my work situation.
To make it up to you, if you’re a regular reader, I thought it would be fun to share some of our pictorial highlights of this past Fall.
This is Jesse getting some tips on how to drive our 6 foot John Deere Diesel mower
Kristina, Rodney (my neighbor) and I auctioneering off some knitted items during Applejam
This is a picture of myself, Wendy Jans and my wife @ Applejam 2008
This is me doing a live TV appearance after my “walkabout” this Fall. (My mind went blank during the live interview…I mean completely blank )
This is a picture of Elaine West (age 98) and myself the day we did an oral history taping
Jesse and myself making some fresh apple cider for Applejam
For our daugher’s birthday she rented a charcoal hog roaster. This was a first for me. This is a picture of me firing it up
Picture of my friend Larry and I right before we put these kayaks into the river for the first time
Larry and I just shoving off
I’ll close with this truth Shalene shared with me recently :
“I’m learning …
I can’t make anyone love me.
Either they do, or they don’t.”
I want to thank those of you that do
take the time to stay
involved in my life.
I don’t take you for granted. DM
