Dear Readers,

You're here, once again! It's hard for me to believe. Thank you for your faithfulness.

Because of your faithfulness, I want to notify you of what I've been contemplating: an end to blogging or, at the least, a break.

But the end isn't here yet. (I'll make it clear when it is.) So go ahead and check out the post.
I hear that arm wrestling with Conrad has been the thing lately.

Around here, the trampoline is on the fad list. Can't you just see it sucking in the jumpers?

IFRC Work Day

The fire company might be at the new hall, but we aren't.

In fact, we're at the old one because... well, because it's old.


...and workers

...and more ladders

...and more workers.

The Leaning Tower of Pizza

I approve, applaud, approbate... Put simply, I appreciate people who wash their hands, am appalled by those who do not, and appeal to all of you to make it a habit.

(Sorry. Call me overly apprehensive, but I am passionate about anything appertaining to cleanliness.)

Hope I didn't spoil your appetite.

(Check out how many words there are starting with app.)

Someone told me the lamp was trying to make a fashion statement.

And what are we doing here? Making an old-fashioned statement perhaps?

Just so you know, photography isn't dying at IFRC.

It's just going retro.

Much to the skepticism of some.

The Hard Core Volunteers

(By the way, there's some Greek up there for you to translate. Anybody?)

Look over here! Maybe this isn't volunteer work after all. Mr. Phero? Is that your wallet?

Mr. Phero? Hey, where'd he disappear to?

Time to call it a day.

Thank you for stopping by.

Hello Everyone,

Blessings to your Saturday!

Enjoy the post. (And that's an order. :-)

At Greek Class

Conrad casts a surreptitious glance over his shoulder hoping to spot the fateful "translation list."

Is he on it? Will he be called upon?

And here we have the fateful Kleenex box into which must go our homework reports.

Did we do it all? Are our assignments complete?

Lay it out theoretically on the top of a briefcase and Greek makes perfect sense.

Or does it?

Best wishes to Joshua in learning to drive.

(Mr. Phero forgot how to spell student.)

He looks innocent, studious, and irreproachable.

So do they all.

But they aren't. They have started a war!

The War of the Tractors

Why would anyone promote John Deere?

Conrad attempts to answer that question.

He must have been convincing: Luke came to the next class in a Kubota shirt.

Hats, Hamleys, and Huge Pennies

Peering over my shoulder — wondering what I am taking photos of — hoping I wasn't taking photos of her in Dad's hat — betrayed by a mirror.

A posed photo to make up for that last one.

And another one.

Does anyone else see Roger Hamley?

Or have I been watching too much Wives and Daughters?

An 1835 penny our uncles found when building the deck.

This penny saved could be twenty dollars earned.

God Bless.
