Uncle Sherman

The funeral of Uncle Sherman was sad especially when Steve's kids exhibited intense emotion at the loss of their Grandfather. Funerals are strange, I feel deep sadness at the loss but am renewed spiritually.

The funeral brought many memories back about my Uncle Sherman. I have fond memories of hauling hay with him, watching him repair his tractors and trucks on multiple occassion, and watching him irrigate.

The farm yard was a magical place when I was a kid. It was a place to explore, play basketball and softball. It was fun to see the animals especially the new baby colts and calves.

This is priceless...

I captured this video when Christian and I were out in CA. I'm pretty sure mooing is a genetic trait. I know my dad got that gene, too!
