checked with Milo and Joe and found that everything went smoothly
while we were gone. It was cold and cloudy--a big contrast from
our Washington D.C. weather. We started our first day home by
attending Lenten breakfast at 7 a.m., then I attended Bible study
and Birthday Club. It was a lot to get caught up on our first
weather today was cold and cloudy, everything froze last night.
Larry went to Hays in the afternoon for the Fort Hays Experiment
Station Spring Roundup. They presented their research data from
the past year on their cattle operation. It started raining in
had about 1.25 inches of rain last night. Everything is very cold,
wet and muddy. The calves look miserable. Larry spent most of
the day cleaning his shop. I played bridge in the afternoon.
started my day on a sad note. A call came that Robert Larson;
Larry's cousin in Marquette had passed away. It was up to me to
notify the relatives that live here.
Larry and Joe worked in the shop in the morning and Larry fixed
fence in the afternoon.
Fixing fence is a job that must be done every spring to try and
make sure the cattle stay in their pastures all summer. It usually
takes Larry several days to go around all the fences, especially
if we have had a lot of snow that breaks the fences.
