I like to garden, quilt, read most any book, and follow my seven grandchildren in their various activities: Amy, Brent, Amanda, Brice, Jason, Jamie and Alex. We have a Great Grandson, Shaden. He is an active little boy. My husband Roger and I raise beef cattle, grains and hay on our farm.

Opening day of pheasant hunting in South Dakota was a balmy, beautiful fall wonderland of colored trees, crunchy grass and corn stalks, with Ruger running ahead to flush out birds. The hunting party consists of 7 adults and teenagers with guns, 2 women walking along to help the hunters, and 6 1/2 year old Colby, and 5 1/2 year old Alex, having a great time with the adults. All dressed in orange, they made a stop at the house for cold drinks and snacks, water for the dog, and headed back out. I did some odd jobs outside to enjoy the day and put potatoes in the oven for a baked potato bar for supper. Bev contributed a spicy buffalo chicken dish. We had carrots and little yellow tomatoes from my garden, and crock pot baked beans. Susie brought bagels and made some dips. Birthday cake and ice cream for Troy, who turns 40 next week, finished off the meal.
They came in with their limit for the day, picture taking all around, cleaned birds, and exchanged hunting stories. The meal was delicious. It was a very nice day.
