Bible class and late church.

I didn't sleep well last night, so I knew staying awake in church would be a problem, so I decided to take notes. The sermon was on baptism and I really did try to write things down, but I'd start writing and the writing would get smaller and smaller and just kind of quit. I'm sure no one could read it if they wanted to.

Since it was our last day of Bible class for the summer AND we finished the book of Zechariah, Al and Rose had the class over to their house for a potluck. They made the meat and the rest of us added to the meal. I had made a beet salad which turned out to be quite a bit like pickled beets. I made creamed lettuce, too, because the garden lettuce needed to be used or it would bolt. I also made a summer squash casserole using zucchini, yellow summer squash, onions, and peppers. It was OK, and tasted better tonight when I warmed up the left-overs. Others brought potato salad, pasta salad, fruit salad, pea salad, pie, cake--lots of very good food!

We took our excess squashes along and gave them away. Those plants are doing amazingly well.

We cheated again and took 212 all the way home. We hadn't done that for a couple of weeks. The right-hand shoulder of the road is finished all the way to the Strandburg corner.

I decided a nap would be wonderful, so I read my book until I fell asleep in my swing. When I woke up, I could see a hawk on the trampoline. He wasn't very afraid of me, because I got several good close-ups of  him.

Terry loaded bales and piled some up in the alfalfa field over east. I rode over with some lunch for him and could see that Pete was walking around in his soybean field. That gave me an idea. Maybe Pete would take me over to Bob's so I could bring our pickup home. He agreed to do it and then Terry called and said he needed some part numbers off the crippled hay trailer. That meant Pete and I had to crawl around under the trailer looking for numbers. PU! That was a rather smelly job because Heath had spread buffalo manure in that area. If your friends will crawl around under trailers through buffalo poo to help you find numbers, you know they are pretty good friends!

I rode bike to the back corner and then walked towards Lake Alice. I hadn't done that for a loooong time.

It looked like rain could have fallen at Milbank this evening. They've had plenty and water is standing all over. We are another day closer to a some real rain here. Goodnight!
