One year of journaling

I started this blog on June 4 of last year.  Wow, how time flies when you're having fun.  I'm not sure how long I'll keep it up, at least on AOL.  Now that I'm not working, that $10 a month for AOL could probably be put to better use.  But we'll see!  I would hate to give this one up, because it's great to be able to look at the entries in the archives and reminisce.  And if I leave AOL, the blog will be gone.

I'm working on reunions today.  Saturday I sent out flyers about Cliff's family reunion that'll be held here on July 4th weekend, and I'm getting calls back about that.  One of Cliff's cousins called last night telling me that if his brother is attending, he's not coming.  I told him we are inviting everybody, and there will be plenty of others to talk to if he doesn't want to talk to his brother.  Cliff has said for years that the reason his family never had reunions is because they don't get along, and any reunion would break out in a fight.  I must say he and his siblings are excited about this event though, and I'm glad we're doing it.

Later on in July there'll be a reunion of Internet friends in Kansas City, and I'm staying busy researching places of interest.  It looks like it will be a nice group, not so large as to be unmanageable, but with enough folks to have fun (and enough to receive the discounted rates on our block of rooms).  My friends from Scotland are especially interested in seeing The Anderson House and battlefield, The 1859 Jackson County Jail, Fort Osage, and Missouri Town 1855.  Now to figure out how to squeeze all that into three days!  Actually, the Scots will be around a day or two longer, so I'm sure we'll see all that and then some. 

The new calf appears to be hale and hearty.  I'm glad he's a bull, because that means meat in the freezer in fifteen to eighteen months.  Yum.

I really hope you don't leave AOL -- even though I can understand your reasons for doing so.  I also hope you don't post pics of the bull being butchered or killed or dead or wrapped in white paper.  I still remember the pics of the hog you slaughtered.  I'm a carnivore, but I'd rather not see the process of how my steaks arrived on my plate.  Also -- I bet there are enough of us "MY COUNTRY LIFE" addicts to start a fund to keep you on AOL!  Just a thought.   Hug, Russ

Mo, I thoroughly enjoy reading your blog and wish I could write one as interesting as yours is.  I have been saving your entries and read them at the end of the week lately.  I love them and hope you will continue writing your blog on AOL for many years to come.  Looking at the photos of the bull being born was almost like being there.  He was a whopper!.........Sam
