Giant wind turbines were throughout Oklahoma and Kansas. I saw one of the blades on the back of a truck just north of Stillwater

This is a true farm in every sense of the word. Dick farms and runs cattle. Their son, Danny, works with him. Marilyn has a huge vegetable garden and a big flower garden each year. They have two horses (that belong to their daughter, Lynnette), many cattle (their grand kids show them at the fair), dogs, cats, and chickens.

|Almost all of the dogs!|
|The rooster - he was a loud cock-a-doodle-do-er!|
|Beautiful rolling hills for crops and cattle.|
Dick took me out to eat at the Rocket Pizza in Indianola, a nearby town. He explained how combines work for me - one kind cuts wheat, and the other sucks the wheat berries off! He showed me where Danny and his family live, a well as one of my Sloggett cousins lives in McCook. We saw a big buck deer in a pasture! Poor Marilyn couldn't do anything with us or for me - not even a hug! She had had a radiation treatment that day, so wasn't allowed within 9 feet of other people. We had a nice visit that evening and I even talked with another cousin (Dick's brother), David for about a half hour. I hadn't talked with him in about 15 years either! It was so peaceful at the farm, and comforting to visit with family. I love them all so much!
|The corn was a tall as me! Dick said "your corn should be knee high by July".|
