My neighbors have cornfields on two sides of our property. They also grow turnips, collards, watermelon, etc. They haven't planted the cornfields yet this year, but there is still plenty of corn laying around which was missed in last year's harvest.

Yesterday our neighbor came by with some empty sacks and told us the boys could pick up all the old corn they could carry for our chickens.

All afternoon the boys labored, first getting the corn off the ground and then removing the kernals from the cob (the chickens wouldn't touch the corn on the cob). We didn't finish, but did a good afternoon's work. There are some tired boys downstairs.

Now for the Rosary, bed, sleep (a little more work for me) and fishing in the morning before Mass! This is the life.

From the small holding in Bethune...

Oremus pro invicem!
