Sometimes National FFA Convention it seems like the entire week rolls into one big long day -- and when I arrive back at school on Monday it's like I woke up from a dream. All I have left to remind me were these 'Hangover'-esk picture montages to piece together what exactly happened.
Enjoy -- ME
|Culver's - Cause they support us.||We toured Caterpillar's Peoria plant - the kids really enjoyed this tour.|
|I would have enjoyed the tour more if they left the keys in the ignition.||A big D11 blade will always give you some perspective.|
|Darley Farms Intl. - The late great Affirmed -- buried in whole - a huge honor for a horse.||Some people have pictures of their kids & family - this place has pictures of it's horses.|
|One of the best 'hard hat' tours in the Ag industry.||Bottling $250 / bottle Bourbon.|
|In Honor of Halloween -- no camera tricks -- both pictures taken unaltered from opposite sides of the mural.||Creepy ain't it! (the hallway follows you - Left first, going right second)|
|A very great group to travel with -- Ben Booth made us some great T-shirts||Ready for the concert.|

|We'll ... if you can't have a little fun... Let the jokes begin.||2013 Iowa FFA American Degree recipients -- I didn't make the security folks very happy with my vantage point for this photo... but I got the shot.|
