I'm back from Nebraska and Blogstock08. I must say that I had a great time. The Morrow's will certainly make you feel welcome at their home. I'm so glad I got to make this trip and meet all these wonderful bloggers! There was a lot of work that went into making this happen and I take my hat off to all involved and you know who you are!

First of all this was my first time flying so I've included this photo I took from the plane. I flew from Lexington to Memphis where I missed my next flight to Omaha, so I had to fly to St. Paul-Minneapolis Airport and then on to Omaha. I don't know why I missed my flight (I had plenty of time) but I guess I was just not paying close attention to where I should be when I should have been there! I did better with the rest of my flights! I thought I might be nervous being in a plane but it was quite an experience and I enjoyed each flight! I loved looking out at the clouds and everything below!

Here was Ralph on one of his favorite machines. I must say that after the mowing was done I have never seen a more manicured field and lawn. His mowing abilities are topped by no one! (Yes Ralph, you can now send me money for saying that). He really did enjoy mowing with this machine and if Cliff comes up with mowed areas in his cornfields then he need look no further than Ralph for the culprit! When Ralph got off this machine he was the color of dust. Totally.

Not sure what Cliff had been doing, but he has pruners and a bucket on the 4-wheeler. Looks like he's thinking about what chore he has to do next!

Here's Marilyn doing some landscaping out front.

Here is the float trailer before anything was done to it.

I have been very busy since I came home. I will post more pictures in my next part of Blogstock08. It was a real treat and I wish more could have come! You would have had a blast! Those Nebraska folks are mighty nice and friendly!

Welcome back. We missed you and your posts! Glad you enjoyed your trip and the plane ride. I love it when I get to fly into Lexington on a small plane. The horse farms in Kentucky are just beautiful from the air.

Welcome back Rachel. You have been missed. We see on Cliff's blog that you do lectures. Are you available for all events and just what is your topic? LOL So jealous of everyone and the fun that was had.

Yes, I wish I would have been there and I could slap myself silly for not going, but I just thought it might be too hot to ride on July 4th and I was wrong.

I'm glad you had such a wonderful time and I sure enjoy looking at all the pictures of Blogstock and all the bloggers that I could have met.
