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.

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.
