I had the privilege of spending some time yesterday afternoon with the Dyke family. We were in jr. high school together. I would have never thought that I would run into them again. Thanks to Facebook, we hooked up. To think that we only lived 5 miles apart for several years and didn't even know it.
I took Russell and Chloe out for their fall pictures the other day. Russell is so unenthusiastic about picture taking. It's hard to get a nice smile out of him. He's like his father and grandfather.
We have been so blessed to have beautiful weather for later September.
Russell likes the feel of the turf grass.
Chloe just likes laying on the grass.
One day they will no longer want to hold hands.
Russell really does like hugs from his sister.
Russell is getting taller.
My garden has produced an abundance of everything. Gladiolas are one. We have enjoyed a bouquet on the table for weeks already. I plant mixed bulbs because I like the surprise of color when they bloom.
The view from the hill right by our house. Stunning.
The combine drivers getting supper.
Corn on the cob is always a hit.
Chloe loved eating out in the field.
On their way for supper. Most every night Mom and I took supper to the field.
These pictures turned out not bad considering I was standing on the steps of the track tractor which was pulling the grain cart. Love to watch straight cutting of wheat.

This was the last field of wheat to harvest. Harvest was completed this year in good time and with little set backs. This is Russell's favorite time of year.
