{Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real} ~ Oct. 20, 2011

I totally missed last week's {phfr}. Man of the House was at a pastor's conference most of the week. He needed to be delivered to the train station 60 rural miles away on Monday and picked up on Thursday. The only problem was that our only car broke down on my way to pick him up. Thankfully, I hadn't gotten very far, so at least I wasn't stranded with nothing but cornfields and/or grain elevators in sight. But getting him home was more of an ordeal than I had anticipated, so I missed posting. Oh, well. I'm happy to be back. :-)

I have lots of {pretty} to share. A parishioner who is a farmer invited us to ride his combine during the soybean harvest. We had never done anything like that, so we eagerly said yes. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.















{Happy}

This is Farmer John's dog, Mac. He is the typical happy-go-lucky farm dog.



{Funny}

There was GPS and air conditioning in the combine!





{Real}

Evidence that Man of the House really did make it home from the conference eventually!
