  1. Indian Summer here in Brownstown, IN.....78 degrees and the soy beans are being picked today. The field is gorgeous!! Octoberfest this weekend, and the leaves are getting prettier by the day. I wish I had a good camera to share nature's beauty!!

      Sounds like you got plenty done.....all I did was walk the dog after the soybeans were picked. Air quality....kept us inside....with the wind and dust.

      The fairgrounds track is great, and the fast banks of historic Salem just south....best time to go is at Fair time...Friday night race....big crowd...great food. Worth the trip SOMDColtsfan.

      Well thank you for the invitation but I do need the directions. I know your old address was 16 Peyton Place but heard you moved somewhere on Luck Drive. LOL! You have fun.

  3. While I have always celebrated Memorial Day remembering those who fought for our country and died while serving (As well as those serving in Peace Time) Memorial Day with the kids was something I had never experienced. I loved talking and teaching the true meaning of Memorial Day...as well as fun at the farm...WOW! What a weekend!!!

      Yup, Memorial Day is more than just a picnic, a day off, or even visiting a grave site or hearing a marching band...It's about fighting for a vets disability benefits, making sure these vets get the care they need when they come back broken & can't erase nightmares from their minds, & honoring the families that pray their loved one doesn't come home in box.

      On Birthdays, I always think of the George Carlin Tombstone line: "He was just here a second ago." Ha! Ha! Age is a weird thing. Some days you feel young other days you feel old, slow, & 1 step closer to your mortality. It varies I guess.

      so sorry to hear about your loss Brent! I hope you find comfort in your loving memories. I hate geting older for the reason that my loved ones get older. Itis such an strange bitter sweet feeling watching your children grow and being excited for them, but then watching your parents grow older and wishing time could stop.

  10. I have not been on much, but I've been reading some of the truly inept comments about the Colts.  We have a good shot at the division.  Not gonna stick around for more.

     

    So many people 'HAPPY' about DQ.  Makes no sense when we have to stop the run.  GO Colts!!

      Brent: Yeah I pretty much get along with everyone in here but there a few posters on here that can really be irritating with negativity. It drives people away so I get your point.

      Always great to see Brent back in action again. Heal well my brother. 

       

      Yeah, I get disappointed by some of our losses this yr, but the Jets game was a quality win, & I gotta give props to Grigs & Pags when our club wins convincingly.

      Brent you take care of Denene. You're the old LB and you know the LB's has to take care of business. You've got run support and pass coverage you can do it. Just using football terms in real life, pull that chin strap tight and just "BRING IT"!
