    New Friend & New Critter Story
    Many of our faithful readers will remember the Homestead turkey, Fred P. Turkey (the “P” stood for pilgrim). He looked like the pilgrims’ Thanksgiving turkeys that we used to draw and color in elementary school.
    He was brought to the Homestead by Lola Gehle many years ago as a baby turkey, along with baby SnowWhite Goose, for  Cora. 
    He grew to be a very large bird and looked just like a wild turkey. He was a big pet and roamed the grounds free as … a bird.

    Hay is Baled – All is Well
    Just as finally seeing the farmers working in the fields in the spring, so does the sight of our hay baled up and safe after being cut and just laying helpless on the field after being beaten down by hard rains, hail or whatever.
    One of the prettiest calendars I remember seeing was simply a photograph of a field with its harvest of hay standing in rows of golden bales, with a beautiful blue sky decorated randomly with fluffy, white clouds.

    The Brownstown  First Responders & Firefighters …
    … are high on the list of Brownstown’s most valuable assets.
    A little family in Brownstown was in dire straits recently and, literally, their  lives were at stake.
    The father took the expectant mother to their hospital (not in this county) when the mother began experiencing contractions, as she was already the mother of two children and knew this was not a false alarm.
