Carlos and Susana

Our friends Carlo and Susana came to visit the farm over the weekend.  Carlos rode his bike 102 miles to get here.

Here he comes, in for a landing

Woohoo!  pretty happy about the effort

A little tired, no?

Susana joined us a little later and we sat down to have a Marcie home-cooked Indian-cuisine dinner

Here’s another picture of the table.  Diwali lamp in the middle — a little early for “real” Diwali, but close enough…

Carlos is still tired from his ride.

We were hoping for great stars that night so Carlos could do a cool time-lapse photograph but the dang moon was too bright…

Next morning we set out on a walks to see the farm.

We wound up taking pictures on the bench above Big View Prairie.  Susana had better luck with her camera than Carlos did.

But things worked out in the end.

Then, it was time to play with the toys.  Here we’re checking Carlos and Susana out on the PowerTracDor.

Carlos had first bash at the “mow down the trees” project.

Looks like he had a pretty good time.

Then I guess I decided to show Susana how to use the PowerTracDor as an airplane or something.  I still haven’t figured out what I was demonstrating with that hand motion.

Susana had a pretty good time too!

I think this photo could be used as a publicity photo for PowerTrac.

Then we had a little lunch, booked on down to the Mississippi for a quick check-out ride to see if the motor was finally fixed (it was!) and then off to the Harbor View for dinner.

A great time was had by all.
