Brent's Flies the Drone & ATV Riding

Saturday morning Brent brought his family to the farm. It was a little chilly in the morning, but after lunch from Hamilton's BBQ we were heated up. We went to let the dogs run with Brent shooting video with our Phantom 4.


  
He flew it manually without using the video from the camera which made it hard to avoid the bare tree limbs. It was a close one, but he did it without bumping the drone into any limbs.
  
When we parked in the clearing back in the 'holler' he flew the drone up high enough to photograph the house.
  
Brent lowered the drone and flew near Julie & Kyle before landing safely.
  
Sunday morning was warmer and we took Pepper, Daisy and Coco running. We stopped for the kids to throw rocks and others to look for treasure
  
  
We went back to where the daffodils grow and took our annual picture of Julie & Kyle, this year we added Pepper.
 
I also took a picture with Brent's family, including Pepper.
 
We cooked brats and hot dogs on the grill while the kids messed with the fire in the fire pit. Just before Brent left with his family Noah, Seth, Dalton & Josh came over. We fixed them hot dogs with chips and drinks in between ATV rides.

The guys rode till dark, thanked us and headed home.

Linda K & Imon Visit

Linda K & Imon with their dog, Katy, arrived at the farm Thursday afternoon.
Friday we went to their property and helped draw floor plans on the pole barn floor. They checked out the work we had arranged. The water line had been installed and was working along with the septic tank and laterals.

Linda & Imon had stopped Thursday at the Taylor County Electric office and filled out the paper work to have their electricity connected. The crew arrived while we were there and installed a transformer on the pole, connected the power line to the building and plugged in the meter. The power was on!
  
I drove to Albany and we all ate at Hunter's BBQ before returning, getting Imon's truck and then back to the farm.
Saturday Imon and I did some ATV riding while the girls talked down at the shelter house. They packed up their stuff, loaded Linda N's 65 Mustang on a trailer and headed to IN.
Sunday we watched the NCAA basketball games and decided to go to IN on Monday.
Monday I drove the Equinox to Daleville. We didn't have many plans, basically let Linda visit her Mom. I went to bed early instead of watching the Pacers with Stacey and Linda.
Tuesday, Linda and Stacey visited with Nana while I watched NetFlix at the Daleville house. We went to Elbert's for Taco Tuesday when they returned.
Wednesday, Linda went to visit her older brother, Abner Jr, in the morning. Stacey and I rolled out the golf cart and went around Daleville picking up beer and pop cans. It is good exercise for Stacey and gives me a chance to see what has changed in Daleville. The Salem Apartments construction has began with earthwork. The old Lion's Club building is gone and the field in front of the American Legion is now mud. People in town are pissed, but progress moves on, I guess?
Thursday morning we packed our stuff, closed down the house and headed to King Fish. We again ate outside and watched the muddy river and the traffic on it. There is a new pier under construction for the upcoming Thunder On the Ohio hydroplane races.

The off and on rain showers we had drove through in IN were gone as we headed into KY and on to the farm, arriving about 2 PM, but the rain showers resumed around 6 PM. The predicted severe thunderstorms never materialized.
