I'd really like to thank you kind readers for the well wishes and support as I navigate (with no little whining) the road to recovery. Very thoughtful and touching and appreciated. I am blessed.
Saturday was the 90th iteration of Farmers' Day in Kimball. It started as a day to honor county farmers and ranchers who the locals understood were the producers which allowed the community to survive economically. Things haven't changed economically, and I'll just leave it at that.
Here are a few images from the parade.
|The kids always put a smile on my face.|
|KVFD finally took delivery of their new fire engine.|
|KHS Band! They're really good this year. I had a video but my phone decided to reformat its card...|
|A '61-ish Nash/Hudson Metropolitan from Wyoming.|
|Cub Scouts have returned to town after a 20 year absence.|
|PERSONAL FOUL, CHOP BLOCK, KID WITH TWO HATS. FIFTEEN MINUTES IN TIME OUT, REPEAT CANDY TOSS!|
|VERY autumnal light.|
|Those are BIG oxen!|
And best for last, the Junior High Band! These kids are my favorites for some reason.
Mom was telling me last evening how cool Farmers' Day used to be. She tells great stories about the husband calling contests which were (and remain, IMO) legendary.
Huskers managed to defeat both Northwestern and themselves last evening. Nice to see them returning to their Cornhusker Traditions and away from whatever that maniac bo pelini was trying to accomplish.
And now I'm off to soak the foot.
