Dear Jesse, just came by to say hello. You all sure are busy!
I haven't sent your papers yet because I kept forgetting to get a big envelope, but I have one now, so I'll get moving and mail it off to you tomorrow. Meanwhile, you take care and once the chicks have flown the coop, I know you'll have a ball!

Still a dog and the chickens and the rooster, you'll have them to keep you company and keep you busy!

Enjoy your quite time!!

Hi sweetheart! Moving kids is chore but when it's all finsihed you can breathe easy and they will be happy and content and you will have more space and they will still be around to hang out with you and eat meals My oldest girl is getting married next June and she told me she is bringing a "crap load" of stuff home here from her apartment to sell in a yard sale. See what I mean? I still have her dolls and toys and trolls ( remember those ugly things from 15 years ago)in the basement! We will be harvesting wheat now...the weather looks good. Hope to have it done by Sunday! DH runs the combine and I drive ole mabel ( my old 1970 army truck that we use for a wheat truck) to haul the wheat to the big grain elevator. mabel is 3 on the floor shifting and loud and the gears grind and she smokes up a storm when heavy with the wheat and sometimes I wonder if she will make it to the elevator but she always does. People laugh at me and the truck cause there is all these huge big fancy semi trucks bringing in wheat and then old ugly 1970 rusted and loud mabel but she is paid for and gets the job done by gum!!!! But I feel like Granny Clampett driving her. lol. Loveyou, krxxxooo ps got your goodie box ready to send..keep adding stuff lol. it will be next week when I mail it.

Hi Jessie, you have been having some excitement for sure! When we moved four years ago, I thought that was really something. Here, you are helping move lots of folks!

Enjoy the peaceful quietude, Jessie!

Oh gosh, Jessie, you've been busy. I'm not sure I will enjoy it when my kids are gone or if I will be lonely and missing the messes.
