11 Jul Z Crew: 4th of July and the Last Eighty Acres
Garden City, Kansas: Since our company has left, the days have once again began to run together. I was looking at the calendar today and couldn’t believe it was already the 8th of July. I could’ve swore we were celebrating Independence Day just yesterday!
Mom and Dad have been working hard to get the wheat here outside of Garden City out in a timely manner. Thursday morning, Miss America 2011 Teresa Scanlan came to the field with the Great American Wheat Harvest documentary to do a little filming. When the filming crew left, Callie and I returned to the trailer to watch an All-Day Marathon of the 1960’s television show “Gidget.” After Mom and Dad worked all day through the Fourth of July, we barbecued a quick dinner and shot off a few fireworks and it was already midnight!
Friday, we ran into green wheat in the last 80 acres. Saturday and Sunday were spent relaxing after a busy week and we caught a movie matinee in Garden City.
Today, Monday, Mom and Dad were able to get back into the field to finish cutting our last bit of wheat. They walked through the door at 11p.m. to report the end of our work here at Stop #2. I imagine we’ll be moving to our next stop (Limon, Colorado) as soon as possible because we’re looking forward to more company at the end of the week!!!
