Random Notes

Last week we had RA’s from church on Wednesday evening.  There were about 20 boys that visited.  They had a blast feeding the fish, walking the trails and looking at different tree types.  We are so glad to be able to share our blessing with others.
Some of the boys feeding the fish.

They were good at hearing what I was telling them about the forest.

It was good for them to be out in the woods and these young men that help with RA's do a good job in being a  role model for those boys that have no male to look up to in their lives.

Then on Thursday I went to Montgomery with Lisa (Felicia) to the Farmers Federation Cooking Contest.  Sister Shubert was the guest speaker and did a great job talking about her company and how GOD had blessed her.  I didn’t know she was from Alabama and went to Auburn.  Anyway, there were 34 counties represented in the contest and Lisa got 3rd.  The 1st place winner has ties to Clay County.  Her husband and I are 2nd cousins once removed.  The link below will provide other information about the contest.

That evening we attended an Alabama Forestry Association Regional meeting at Sellwood Quail Plantation in Alpine (Talladega County).  It was a legislative update and a presentation on inheritance and asset protection.
Last, but not least, we are getting some great scuppernongs and muscadines from our three year old plants this year.  We have been able to can some of them. 
Thank goodness for cooler weather, maybe I can get some bush hogging done this week.
