I believe in the Future of Agricuture with a faith born not of words but of deeds. . .

I have of late, gotten very into FFA. It is so fun! I am in four contests. They are Creed, Parliamentary Procedure, Records, and B.I.G.(Best Informed Greenhand). They are all really fun, except Records sometimes which is kind of hard and confusing, but it's ok. My favorite is probably Parli. Pro. It is REALLY fun and exciting. It is also kind of stressful. My favorite motion is Fix the Time to Which to Adjourn.

"I move to fix the time to which to adjourn, so when we adjourn, we reconvene tomorrow at ten a.m. in the Ag. Room. "

It is great because it has so many parts to remember so that you sound smart when you say it. Zone is February 4th and we Wellsians are going to win!

". . . stand solid for my part in that inspiring task."

P.S. Today I experienced one of the discomforts of agriculture. Mom paid me a dollar to carry a huge, bloody, dead raccoon that Dad shot over the fence with a shovel. It was gross. . . and REALLY heavy for a raccoon, but I did it! Aren't I an agriculture star!

Tell your mom you deserved more than a dollar!!!! Also, I think that should be a boy job. Isn't that what brothers are for????

Good luck at FFA zone. I hope you win big (and win B.I.G.) and sound very brilliant when you move to adjourn (or whatever that motion was...see, I didn't get the brilliance here).

What an agriculturist you are! I can't wait until we get chickens this spring so you can care for them.

I feel for you with the raccoon. TV makes them look sweet and petite, and TV LIES. They are huge and stink as much as the next roadkill. AG sounds like fun. I was only in it long enough to get a couple really good trips out of it....but it was still worth it. Good luck at your competitions. We need an update!
