My new wheels, 2nd edition! :-)

Hello again out there in cyberspace! Once again I haven't written in long time, and I have a lot to say!

We are still busy making hay; it is an all-summer project! We still have about 160 acres of alfalfa to cut, ditches to bale, and a little native prairie to mow, rake, and bale. Then we have to stack all the bales before the plants under the bales die, then we start all over with the second cut on the alfalfa! Here is a picture of some of our bales, after they have been moved in from the field, but before they have been stacked:

Here is a picture of the inside of Cora's camera:

She asked me to "Fix It", as the lens would not extend or retract fully, and so was unusable. I was able to take it apart and oil the lens mechanism, and now it works again!

O, getting back to the subject of my post, here is a rather candid shot of me just arriving home in my "New" wheels.

A little better picture:

My Brand-New Old-Used truck is a 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 Sport 4x4, in very good condition.

I just HAD to take everybody out for a spin, and Cora caught me driving:

Mom knew I bought a pickup, but she was a little surprised at how nice it is!

What? Tailgating already?

Best get out to the barn,

Andrew B.

Dear Andrew,
What an amazing entrepreneur you are!!! You worked so hard running the grain cleaner this Spring and as Rachel Lynd would say, "You did well for yourself."
Then I watched you write out the VERY large tithe check to Gospel for Asia. You ARE following God's principles and now HE has rewarded you with your new wheels at a VERY reasonable price.
I rejoice that you are already a successful man of God. Keep serving the King and He will continue giving you the desires of your heart!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm VERY proud of you, my son.
Love and blessings,
