Yesterday we drove from Illinois to meet my Dad's friend Everett Brodie. He was able to take us around the farm that my father grew up on and also gave us a guided tour of the town where he and my father went to high-school, Goodman MO. It was very fun. We were supposed to camp on the creek that night however mother nature didn't cooperate and there were thunder storms and flash flood warnings, so we continued on to Oklahoma.
Everett had beef cows and builds tractors that he pulls every Friday night at state fairs and such. Very cool. :o)
