We had some excitement here on the Missouri River bottom last Thursday and Friday. Ralph and Char met some of their family here for a brief reunion. They were good sports about the fact that we were pretty busy. Marilyn had two full days of grooming and I had some meetings while they were here. Ralph spends his days at meetings that are very similar so he took it in stride. He even came to one of my open meetings as a spectator. He said "just for the entertainment."
It rained most of the day on Thursday which put quite a damper on planned activities. The girls of the group were great help for Marilyn at the kennel. There was also some horseback riding, and 4 wheeling.
I must say that the little girl in pink is as engaging a young lady as I've come across. She will look you right in the eye and do verbal battle with you if that's what you want. She asked me questions about farming that most adults wouldn't have the perceptive ability to ask. Very sharp and mature for only 14.
The whole group is engaging for that matter. They are a wonderful family and even though as witness the picture, I had to eventually ask them all to leave, I'll bet they will be back soon.
We hope it will be very soon.
