Ben playing with his Favorite Person~!

No this is not Ben's Favorite Person, LOL..this is 3 beautiful pheasants that are in our side yard.. They were so beautiful pecking and walking all over the yard ~ looking ~looking~looking and very skittish.   I told them to stay on our property because we have No Hunting signs posted.. It's been a long time that we have seen pheasants and we are hoping they don't get on some one's table.   I also heard 3 Quail and they were singing their cool song. "Bob-White"...  I used to tell my kids there's Bob when ever I heard them sing and they would say "Bob who?"  I told them Bob White of course.. They would just laugh at me.. But they do remember...
HERE is Ben's favorite person ~  Jodie - our daughter from Michigan.. She came home yesterday to stop and get her cat, Calvin and then this morning Her and Mark left to go home.. I will miss them terribly.. We had a great time while they were here.  Sunday after church we went to Stone City and had lunch at the General Store and then went and picked up Ben.. He was so excited~!
    When we got to my house Ben wanted to get on the computer right away and play Mario games, puzzles with Aunt Jodie.  They had such a great time with all the games they played.. I just love this picture.. Wish it didn't have the shading on it,,couldn't get Ben to pose for another one.. Yikes..~!
      They found a game where you got to dress Mario.. I thought it was just precious Jodie and Ben's faces..
This morning I went to Mrs. Wittenburg's 2nd grade class to volunteer. I just love going there on Monday and Thursday mornings to help out..  She has 15 boys and girls..  Picked up Ben after  school and his mom, Tracie met us here at my house.. We had supper and then I got out the board games and we played Parcheesi and the card game War..  Then it was time for him to go home and get ready to go to school tomorrow..  Grandchildren are such a blessing from God.    I do enjoy them..   Have a Great Tuesday and ta ta for now from Iowa:)

We had a great time too! Give Bennie a big hug for me. Calvin had a great time also. He was looking for the stairs to play on this morning.

Love the pheasants -- we haven't seen many here either.

Your daughter is lovely. :)
