Today Brian, his Wife Joey, and daughters Briley & Bailey came by for a visit while driving from Brian's Mom's near Indianapolis to Joey's Mom in North Carolina.  In tow was a trailer load of John Deere 332's, a pair of brand new Trupower ags on rims, and tons of garden produce.  (I'm worried he's low on gas money & he's selling produce as he goes to fill his tank. :rolling: )   Naw, he bought a ton of corn & tomatoes to take to Joey's Mom's & work up.  He left us a nice mess of corn & tomatoes too!   :D   Our corn isn't in yet, & I tried an ear in the microwave like he's posted about before, 4 minutes on high for each ear, cut the base end off just after the first row of kernels, then Joey shook it by the silks & lo & behold, that ear slid out with NO silk on it!  And talk about DELICIOUS!!!!!!!!!!   Thanks guys, tonight is gonna be a 2 course meal....corn & butter!!!!  :thumbs:

  I made a batch of home made peach ice cream, this morning & had waiting in the freezer for their visit.  By hokee, I think they liked my fixins!  

  They have several more hours driving so had to pull out, but sure wish they could have stayed MUCH longer.  Brian & his entire family are GREAT folks!   Next time we'll have to have more time to really sit down & kick back.   Thank you all for taking the time out of your busy trip to come see us Brian! 

 

PS:  I know Joey loves tractors, but just won't admit it.   So tell her I've set aside a plot this year for her with restrictions & covenants so as only she can plow that ground!   :smilewink:

The last few times I have had an ear of corn they were terrible!  But they were store bought so what can you expect?   Glad you all had a good visit.

This time of the year is great with all the fresh corn. And butter and salt. Just hope I don't have any doctor visit soon. :D He says no butter and little salt, but how could I eat then?

Sounds like a great visit you had.

Had an issue with my memory stick, but just got it to load pics.  Bailey next to Dad, Briley next to Mom.  One pic without tractors, one with.  I'll say it again....great seeing them all again!

Yep! A trailer load of 332s. Thanks for the pics Daniel. Your property look great. Lawns freshly mown by the looks of it.
