COTTONWOOD -- Combines were out this week harvesting canola and grass fields. The wheat will be ready soon. Our family went camping up on Grangeville mountain and had a great time. Time spent with the grandkids is always special. We picked a few huckleberries, too.

I hope everyone had a great time at the Raspberry Festival. The sisters always go all out for this event.
