Darrell and Ruth just returned from a two week vacation cruise to a big celebration of their
50th wedding anniversary. Darrell and I are related, my grandmother and his grandmother
were sisters. When I was a kid we used to go over to visit them and have dinner with them on
the farm. Darrell's mom was a great cook.
After Darlene and I were married we would go to visit them on Sunday. Darrell's dad, Ike was crippled and could only walk by holding his knee in place. They always had horses. They had one particular horse named Creamo. When Ike would go to do chores, like milk the cows and feed the livestock, Creamo would come up to the porch so Ike could get on his back and ride him out to do the chores. Creamo was Ike's 'wheel chair'.
In later years, after Darrell and Ruth were married, we would visit them and see them at family reunions. We always had a great time. Most people couldn't tell Darrell and his twin brother Farrell apart.
We attended their anniversary celebration and really enjoyed seeing and visiting with family members we seldom see.

JADA USA and a friend

Some of the trick or treaters, out to get some candy. We don't have the kids come like we used to. We live on a farm and there not as many farmers now so less small children. It was always fun to see how they would dress up especially the little ones.

This was a good year for flowers. The rain showers came at the right time and cooler weather helped them grow. Some of my fall flowers got frosted before I got to take some pictures of them. The roses were great. I didn't take any pictures so I put two from last year.
I have been having trouble with uploading pics so it has been some time since i have published any thing, hope to do better.
