Coliseum Lights Out

 Last night I had the pleasure of joining several fair going folks to say Good Bye to the way we see the Coliseum now.  It was a call given by Cindy Hoye  for Lights Out.   These picture are of the Rodeo that was  the last event in the Coliseum that was attended by 5000 FFA members that were visiting this week for their National Convention.  There were approximately 55,000 in Indianapolis and surrounding towns.  It was a pleasure to have them in Indy and I hope they come back real soon.   I know the convention is going to Louisville but some day they will come back.

Andre had to take one last trip around the coliseum

Cheri Daniels and Cindy Hoye I bet they are planning which contest Cheri  will enter next year 

I am glad I was invited  to help say goodbye and I look forward to the opening of the renovated Coliseum in 2014.  "Light Out"

Fall and Sunflowers

My son took this picture on the way to one of our fields   There are several tree that are beautiful  We are still working at harvesting corn  seems slow but we are moving right along.  Some field yields are a surprise.

I planted some sunflowers early this summer the biggest is 13 inches  I had one several years ago that was 19 inches and I entered it in the State Fair it got a second.  The one below was planted in August and they are trying to put on flowers but 3 days of cold temperature sure slowed them down.
