April is nearly gone, so I decided maybe I should post something before May rolls around. There have been lots of things happening – some things good and some things not so good – some things mundane and some things unique! Here’s some of the highlights:
- ***A couple of weeks ago Jesse drove up from Lincoln with an author who was in town interviewing him for a book he is writing about what he called “relos” – people who relocate often because of their jobs. He chose Jesse to interview because he is finishing up a master’s and will soon have to decide whether to move away someplace for a job or stay close to home. He also wanted to visit Jesse’s hometown and meet his parents, so that was the reason for the trip up to our house. We had quite an interesting conversation over dinner and will be anxious to see the book when it is published. The writer had worked at the New York Times for thirty years before retiring to pursue a career as an author.
- ***As the title of this entry indicates, we have had lots and lots of rain lately which is a good thing in the spring on a farm. Soon we’ll be planting corn and soybeans when the ground dries out.
- ***Prom, track meets, music contests and other spring events have kept us busy at school. Graduation is just around the corner!
