Well in case you have been emailing me with no response and in case you have been wondering why there is nothing new on the website, here is the answer.
We have been moving into several spots on the farm. AT&T has not been helpful in getting our internet up and running but finally, today we have internet
accss. Now if I can get my own computer up and running and get to my GMail we will be up and running with communication. November has been a very busy month for us.
Bob has learned how to drive the lawn tractor into the lake and it is now a permanent decoration. We are preparing for our first Thanksgiving and Christmas
at our new home. Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. News of our upcoming Christmas party will be going out soon.
