Combine & Crochet

I came across this runner a few weeks ago while doing some cleaning.  I used to use this on the kitchen table.  Looks like it could use a washin' and a stretchin' but that's gonna have to wait a while because for the next few months everything will revolve around the real thing !!!

Never a dull moment !!!

Not what you usually find sitting in your corn field !!!  For some reason this glider didn't make it back to where he was going but he was OK and no damage to the glider.  Ya never know what is going to happen next !!!

It's Harvest Time........

......that's how the Luke Bryan song goes and it's very true. Rick started shelling corn yesterday and we each took a load to the mill this morning. 
Here Rick is finishing up his load...
.....and I unloaded right behind him. 
After an early lunch he got right back to it.
Just the beginning of a busy time of year.

Tractor Show Weekend

It was a beautiful weekend and we attended two very nice antique tractor shows.  The first was in New Enterprise, PA called Southern Cove Reunion.
It was in such a pretty area.
After enjoying the show we took a nice drive threw the valley.  Nice farms all along the way. 
Then on Sunday we went to Two Top Ruritan show at Mercersburg, PA where Addie had a good view of the show.
It was all very enjoyable.

Mini Vacation

This past weekend we took a mini vacation.  We left Friday morning to go to the Nittany Antique Tractor show near State College, PA.
The show was huge !!!  It was also very hot that day, too. 
The food was great like at any tractor show so we watched the tractor parade while we ate. 
It is in a very pretty area  with beautiful mountains all around.
There were way too many vendors to look at everything. 
We watched the silage chopping demonstration for a while then we took a drive up threw the valley.  The Amish farmers were bundling their corn and hauling it in to the barns all up and down the road. 
Heading back towards home we came across a huge farm chopping corn the more modern way. 
It was a very nice get away but like all vacations way too short !!!
