A quick selfie with this cutie at Bits and Pieces. Janice Sheard begged and begged for a selfie with me so I said yes. Wait, oh, yeah, I begged her. That's how it happened.
So, what's going on down on Railroad Avenue? A little sewer pipe repair work. It will all be back to normal soon!
I spied this huge "wood chipper" down by community brush pile. It looks like the Morbark is going to make quick work of the unsightly brush pile. I hope I'm around when it is working! If I'm not...someone get a picture for me!
Joe and I with Governor Heineman and his wife Sally Ganem. We were invited to a tailgate party by Lou and Suzie Allgayer before the Nebraska game last Saturday. We've never been to anything like this before so of course we had to go. They were very gracious when Joe and I circled back and asked to have another picture with them. It's not every day Governor Heineman has someone ask him for a selfie. I couldn't reach my arm out far enough so we had to recruit some help for the selfie.
