Memory Makers Quilt Guild of Perryville Mo. has a picnic meeting in August. This year we met at the Barrrens Winery and had a lovely supper out on the porch with a nice breeze.

At our picnic we have a challenge and this year we were given an apron to finish off in a picnic theme with using some strips and dots. These are pictures of the aprons.

The skinny Dick's apron was brought by a member as a joke. It is X rated. You may be able to see what is under the towel!

I don't remember for sure which member made which one so I better not say. The one in this picture with the cupcakes is mine.

A Day at Pre Fair....

Adam getting ready to show his heifer. Both boys took a heifer and steer. You City folks might night know what they are but just ask me and I will explaine.

Brandon getting his heifer ready.

Adam in the show ring with his steer.

The judge taking the time to tell Adam he is going to place his steer in Second place. Adam said "No Way" to the judge. But the judge did say his steer may take the Grand place at the Fair with a little more on his ribs. But he does have a nice rump.

Brandon showing his steer and he came in Second place too. The first place was a friend and the judge was right on that one.

After the show my Son gave a talk to the 4H kids and parents on getting your beef animal ready for the Fair. He did a great job.

Master Chef is in the house....

Yes, Brandon is in. He made a 2 fried egg sandwich on toasted raisin bread with butter and cinnamon. He said it was great. Then after that we were off to check the cow's. Master Chef/Rancher.

We had two born last night and early morning. Brandon is putting a tag in this ones ear. Mommy wasn't too happy about the whole deal. She let out a load Mo and half the heard came to see what was wrong. It is a bull calf. I could of showed you a different picture, calf between his legs and a nice butt crack, but I'm trying to keep this blog PG. I think you get the picture. You have to put the calf between your legs to hold it still, so you can use both hands. Unless you have a friend who can help you. But Grandma wasn't getting out of the pumpkin. Not the way that Mom cow was looking at us.

This one didn't get an ear tag. Mom is not to friendly and very protected. As you can see I took the picture threw the glass.

This one was born about a week ago.
