The pain from Dave's shingles is just starting to ease for him. He went 5 hours yesterday with out having to take something for the pain. And remember he has a very high pain threshold. It has now been 6 weeks since this all started.
Kay has had a bad cold after her mom had one and is now sounding and feeling much better.
Third oldest son S and wife Jes are in the middle of packing for a move, good luck to them. That is a hard job with 5 children, working outside the home and being on call.
It is snowing and blowing here this morning. We had out first snow Sunday night just like a 1/2 inch and are in the middle of a pretty good storm right now.
Everyone got off to work okay early this morning and hope they can get home alright to.
The dogs did not want to go out this morning. Grandsons dog Bear had to be shoved out lol.
Here is Bear
We did manage to get the corn and beans hung to dry for seed back at the end of Sept. Wasn't fun as Dave thought he had pulled his shoulder muscles but turned out it was the shingles starting.
Yeah more then we should need but we wanted to make sure if something happened to some of it that we had what we needed.
