Eight is my lucky number. Some number of years ago I rolled a lucky double eight and out I popped ... born to two very sweet dear people who I have come to know as "Dad and Mom". Lucky me, for many reasons but most especially because that Dad and Mom are my Dad and Mom. They are my lucky double eights. Today is my birthday, and I have looked forward to this birthday in particular for quite a long time.

They come to enjoy the cold, crisp water of our river, to feast on wheat and corn in our fields, to commune with nature in company with their loved ones. The annual rendezvous has begun. Excited chattering late night and early morning, energetic in-flight organizational meetings occur overhead throughout the day.
