We are begining to see and hear a lot more wild turkeys in the area. I shot this picture of a hen and her chick just a mile south of town. For a while there was a large flock of them that made their home right here in Elkton, In fact they used to wander into my backyard, but after a time they found it a little more interesting to move into the country.
Farm kids love to share
Sherry let her regular readers bring pets to the library for their school mates to see. Talk about a fun activity. The library was buzzing with excitement and interest. The students loved showing off their cats, gerbils, pigeous and other small animals. I also found it quite interesting to see and hear about all the different small animals.

Milk for the calves
Ursula and Ernest
The new born calf
Brothers at work
Tom is out mowing the ditches around the dairy barn. It is impressive to see someone mowing backwards at such high speeds. It must have learned how to do that at college.
Today some farmers spend more time on the computer in the barn doing bookwork than they do working with the cattle in the barn. Here Steve is working on the computer, but at the same time, he is not afraid to get his hands dirty.
