Latest happenings

Well, we started preparing the yard to plant this week. Wednesday we got started. Kevin and Nicholas came over to help us. Nicholas and I picked rocks to start (They multiply!!) while Kevin and David tilled pulling behind Kevin's tractor. When they went home for supper we went and got my Dad's four wheeler. It has 4 wheel drive so it was not spinning in the dirt, plus it gave me a job. Lap after lap, I pulled the arrow behind me. I had fun!! David and Nicholas picked more rocks. Kevin started pulling a chain fence thing behind the tractor and they started loading it with the rocks to haul out back to the pile. While we went to my Mom's we got to see my brother's motorcycle he wrecked Tuesday night. He went to stop at a stop sign and he got on a bunch of cinders and locked up his back tire. He laid it down on the left side, and HE landed on Rt. 220, the road he was coming to at the stop sign. Thank God no one was coming, he could have been hit!! It's all scratched up. Foot peg broke, something on the handle bar is bent, motor housing is cracked and it's leaking oil. So, it's off for repairs. That thing scares me that he even has it. I can only hope he would get rid of it, but I doubt it he's chomping at the bit to get it back already! Ugh...well anywho... Here's the past few days:
