A Truck Ride, A Fish Supper, AL Quilt Symposium, and Magnolia Sewing Circle

Life …

I rode with Paul the other day to deliver a load of wheat.

We are approaching the scales at Tom Soya at Valley Grain near Pickensville, AL.

This was the view out my window while we were dumping the wheat. It is loaded onto barges and shipped to Mobile for export.

The Grabers had an afternoon and evening together for Paul’s folks. Daddy fed the fish to make catching them easier.

Galen was glad for his vice grip to pull the hook from a fish’s mouth.

Jeanie’s skills at filleting came in very handy.

Jerrill preferred using an electric knife to fillet.

Some of the fish were breaded and fried …

Dorcas made 3 gallons of ice cream with goats milk. And yes, it was good!

These cousins enjoyed each others company but became right sober when my camera showed up.

I enjoyed holding these two munchkins.
