Thank you to the sheriff’s office dispatcher, the ambulance crew and life flight for saving my hide.

To my anonymous “Friend”: Thank you so much for your generous gift. You’re right, it does help. I can certainly use it to help get my barns up.

A great thank you to our children - Greg, Harley, Loretta, George and Carrie, relatives and friends, from five states, that gathered at Vista Park on July 19th for the 60th anniversary of Ray and Caroline Badger and 80th birthday for Caroline.
Thanks to Bill C. for the tent - perfect. The food, plants, and best wishes were wonderful; the many blessings abundant.
Thanks, everyone.
