Well, except when Rhiannon kept raising her hand to bid on the plate of chocolate chip cookies.....we finally had to hold her arms down when it got to $27. I like cookies and all, but we needed to save our money for some REAL goods. Or shall I say, cheap labor? We "bought" ourselves two strapping young FFA men for eight hours a piece to help with some landscaping chores.
They came over after school on Tuesday and raked and burned leaves for three hours (there's a LOT of leaves over at his Mom's place) then came back again on Wednesday for another three hours of leaf burning and stall mucking. I swear we moved about a ton of manure / wasted hay.
|Good ol' FFA labor|
Anywho, their Ag teacher is one of our friends, Adrian (she's the lady with the poor Nigerian doeling that had to be put down two weeks ago) and she came over to help....and probably acquired some blisters of her own. Her husband also just so happened to happen upon a small patch of Morels. She posted them on FB Monday night and I just ogled at the pictures. We went out on the weekend and Paul's been going out after work, but we still haven't found any. Even though our searching yielded zip, we didn't end up empty handed:
Adrian and Aaron gave us some of their bounty! Oh, I was so very, very excited. I can't wait to sautee those babies up tonight.
