Sunday evening peanut ride
1991 Ford F150. Hot Sunday afternoon, after obligatory pond swim. Truck ride mandatory. Peanuts and cold beverages available.
We passed the "local" bison herd. Cool to see these prairie animals being raised six miles away.
Our next stop was the old Danforth school and chapel, on a scenic oak hill. This was a traditional one room schoolhouse until about the 1960's. We go to church at the new chapel building downhill from here once in a while. They still maintain the playground.
It is said that a certain motherly figure even got in on the action. Calvin was anxiously checking the swingset structure for stability. But I can swing higher than anyone!
All in all, a great evening. :)
By the way, this morning we got an additional 1.4 inches of rain, to bring the total to 2 inches over the weekend! Awesome! The pond was noticeably higher, and cooler; I think as the water table goes lower, less groundwater seeps in.
