Honeybee Cowmb was one of Dale's inventions for "Cow Parade," of course Grace had to be there too! Unfortunately, Grace left us for doggy heaven in 2015. My Bucky on Parade design, "Beeatrice the Beekeeping Badger" did not make the cut.
Fun on the Farm
I will try to keep this current with new postings weekly, but for now here are some recent and not so recent happenings on the farm and about.
Our McFarland Historical Society "boat builders" restored a one hundred year old boat for our museum displays. We also took it our on Lake Waubesa for a test run and photo op prior to placing it on permanent display at the McFarland Historical Museum on Main street, McFarland, Wisconsin.

In March of 2017 I joined our church in sending a group to Uganda with Hope 4 Kids Intl. Since some of us went to Uganda a second time in April of 2019. While there we dedicated wells our church raised funds to build 2 wells for Ugandan villages. This year we are raising enough money to build 2 more wells and next April we will go back to Uganda to dedicate those wells. While there we do a medical outreach, visit our sister church and help out , we also do spa days in an uplifting way to help widows and other village women. We visited orphanages and hospitals while there too. At the end of the trip we had an opportunity to visit a wild game preserve. Lions, antelope, giraffes, and elephants, Oh My!
