On The Farm


My brother-in-law, Mel, and his wife, Pat, bought the old family farm from my wife's parents more than 30 years ago. With the way agriculture has changed, they both had day jobs while they grew corn and raised cattle (and children). Four generations were hanging around the place yesterday, from 93 year old Elvira to five month old Sydney. The number of great grandchildren is beyond my comprehension (none contributed by my division to date, though). Some of them played on the old tree swing while the boys went out to skeet shoot.

Great to have a outing like this with so much family members. Must be a hectic day .

Love the first. It has a timelessness to it and of course that in the moment living that children do.

It's hard work running a farm these days I reckon Bob (well any days really!) How nice to have the whole family there together. The boys were having fun anyway!

We made a swing like this for our kids when they were little. They loved it. As for shooting... ah it's a different culture for sure!
