Sparkle in the dirt is where my cell phone bit the dust

I was bush-hogging one night while wearing my cell phone.

Apparently, the Velcro flap on my cell phone holster was worn out.

While making a turn, I saw shiny bits in the dirt and thought it was one of the kids' toys.

I stopped the tractor to check and picked up my cell phone in five pieces.

I started giggling – the darn thing was dead.

Stag party

A stag beetle showed up Sunday morning. This is a beetle with pincers on its head that look like stag horns.

I thought he was cool! But my wife, Jenifer, and our daughter, Ellie, did not appreciate me parking the beetle in a strawberry basket on the kitchen table for lunch.
