Several people have asked to see the photos I am entering in my very first art show so decided to post them here. They look soooooo much nicer when printed on 13×19 paper, and are being professionally framed. (Sue)

Dave’s Giant Pumpkin
It’s that time of year again! Dave has carefully nursed his giant pumpkin through the cool, cloudy start to our summer. Recently Dave reported:
“Well the plant is alive! I’ve had an early blossom, but obviously not mature.
It’s about 2 feet long and I’m hoping with the sunny days forecast it will take off.
That is, if the deer don’t eat the blossoms etc. Cross your fingers.”
He has been doing some pollinating, and we are hoping this one will be another winner!
Yes, another winner. In 2006 Dave’s pumpkin also got off to a slow start, but won two prizes in Coupeville’s annual Harvest Festival contest. Dave’s BrookLynn (named for his first granddaughter) won the prize for “Prettiest Pumpkin” and, at 228 pounds, was second heaviest.
Check out the “Giant Pumpkin” tab on our website for story and photo of Dave and BrookLynn.
Can he do it again? Stay tuned as we bring you regular updates. And, as Dave says…
“Cross your fingers!”
Happy Birthday, Dave! Hope you have a wonderful day.
Wish I could be there to celebrate with you but this is the next best thing.

Happy Fourth of July, everyone. Wishing all of you a safe time of celebration. It’s a good time to stop and give thanks for the many blessings God has and continues to bestow upon our great country! Sincere gratitude to all who have served to keep us free and strong. (Sue)
