This year Luke loves playing ball. He has gotten really good at hitting the ball and knowing how to scoop up the ground balls. This year his friend Chance was in the team with him. They absolutely had so much fun. Grandpa John and Grandma Cheryl came to a game and so did Grandma Betty, Grandpa Darwin with Great Grandma Bird. It was a great year of watching him grow and have so much fun.

We finally were able to obtain and use the tickets. So we headed down to see what John Craig was worth and hopefully get more info on who painted him. But we left with little info. They gave us someone to contact back east and hopefully they will have the info we are looking for, but they did say from what they do know that they would estimate $2000. I took the Japanese fugurines Great Grandma Harvey she gave me when she passed. They said $50 for each. Betty took her Indian blankets and they said those would be about $500- $800. Grandma Bird took Uncle Brent's Indian pictures and they estimated to $100 each. It was fun to experience but lugging around the big tote of Indian stuff made for a long hot day.
I suspected that Penny the cow was pregnant and she proved me correct. She had a little black angus bull calf. Nowing this little guy wouldn't be on our farm for long I named him P-1 (Penny's 1st) but Luke wanted to name him "Hard to Find" cause Chris and Luke couldn't find him earlier. When Poppi Corn and Papa Corn came to visit, he proudly said his name was "Hard to Find, but it would change to Gone soon. Mom burst out laughing, because he is right.

When Chris brought turkeys to the farm, I was a bit iffy. Kind of like how I was when we got chickens a few years back. Well I have come to love them. They have quite the personalities. When I am outside, they will follow me around and when I make a barking chirp like sound Hillary will answer back and Bernie (Tom Turkey) comes a running like he has to protect Hillary. They completely run the roost here and they are not scared of the dogs, in fact it is the other way around. The dogs are afraid of them. Maybe it is because they are taller then the dogs.
