We are busy making a fence around the cow pasture so the cows can roam around a bit. Hope to be done real soon as I am REALLY GETTING SICK OF IT! Next weekend we get to leave for a bit. YEA!!!!!! Leaving Thursday late afternoon for Iowa for the summer toy show in Dyersville and update the museum pieces. Will be there for 2 days then off to Carpentersville, Illinois for a grad party. Jerry's goddaughter, Becky, is graduating high school.
Better go now and start working on that fence.........
