Fun Times at the Punkin Patch!

Ariel, Shay, Jordyn, and Atticus dig into the corn. John and Carae

Oehlerking own the Punkin Patch on Highway 34 east

of Elmwood.  There are fun things for the kids to do such as play in

the corn tank or you can take their pictures in the cutouts.


Atticus was the fly and Shay was the spider!  Once they are done

with the corn and the cutouts then you can concentrate on the pumpkins.










There was quite the crowd there on Sunday.  But they

have plenty of pumpkins and gourds and mums for

every one.



But watch out for the guard dog...and guard kitten.

Take your kids out to the Punkin Patch and you will

all have a great time!












Randy and Angie Willey head up Ben's Brigade with the help

of John and Noah and of course, Ben!



Ben's Brigade had nineteen members and they raised

$850! The Willey family would like to thank everyone

who donated and walked with them in the Buddy

Walk last weekend.  It was a fun time for everyone

and they raised money for a good cause! The Buddy

Walk® was established in 1995 by the National

Down Syndrome Society to celebrate Down Syndrome

Awareness Month in October and to promote

acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome.

Vince and I spent last week at his mom's house in Auburn.  She passed away on Monday and

nothing brings family together more than a death.  His sister and three of her kids flew in from

Vermont and Florida.  Along with Vince's brother and his family we tackled the house.  Vince's

mom had collected a lot of things over the years...unfortunately a lot of things were not worth

saving.  We did find some pickles that were dated 1952.  We threw them out.  The family took

the items that meant something to them and the rest was thrown away or donated to charity.

It was a busy week!


The kitchen..after we had already hauled out a lot of stuff.


It's time to close the dumpster door so we can jump on the pile and stomp it down to add more.


Vince found a new hat.  It was either a dog hat or a Kleenex box cover.

We'll never know because someone threw it away.


We took 10 truck and trailer loads to Good Will.

The majority of work is done now and Vince's family has returned to their homes.  The funeral

is over and the healing has begun. We had such a good time with each other that we've pledged

to have a family reunion next summer in Vermont.  It's too bad that someone had to die to bring

everyone together but it did.


Vince and his granddaughters, Madison and McKenzie Anderson


And here I am with my arms full of the other two grandchildren,

Emma and Zachary.


Millie and Garyn meet up with a long lost uncle. He might have been from my side

of the family. Uncle Ralph, is that you?

For the third year in a row, farm owners Terry and Teresa Lorensen are

inviting visitors to bring their canine companions to the pumpkin patch. Canine

proceeds will be donated to the Capital Humane Society. In addition, sales of

Halloween-themed neckerchiefs will be donated to the organization, and donation

jars will be in place so that even those who don't bring a dog can participate.

Volunteers from the Capital Humane Society will be on-site from 10:00 a.m. until

2:00 p.m. with a selection of dogs which can be adopted from their location at

2320 Park Boulevard in Lincoln, NE.

"Many of the animals we have here at the farm, including our dog Rocket, have

been adopted, and we want to help other animals who need new homes," said Lorensen.

Bloom Where You're Planted Farm is located at 911-108th St., rural Avoca, NE.

Their annual fall Pumpkin Festival runs through November 1st. Hours are: Fridays
