Knights Ferry School Kindergartener Alexa Boyajian took her class to her Grandma Laura's house on Orange Blossom for an October outing. They all got to pick up sacks of almonds, picked out a pumpkin from the pumpkin patch, (thanks Save Mart for the supplemental pumpkins) fed the goats, played on the trampoline and teeter-totter, ate chili and cornbread and got a goodie bag. Grace Harden liked petting the goats. River McCarthy liked getting her pumpkin. Alek Barton liked feeding the goats. Troy Peterson (siblings were along also) liked picking up the almonds. The children had a lot of fun!

This has been another beautiful week in the Ferry but we need the rain! Even the weeds are getting limp!
Breakfast Sunday dawned bright and clear with the daffodils and redbud trees blooming and the almond trees that were past their prime greening up and those just coming into bloom were puffs of pink. The sandhill cranes were heading north from their wintering spots, whirling in their large groups and making a funny call. The sporadic rain that we got helped the grass to grow (also the weeds).
A great big "Thank You!" from the Boyers to the Knights Ferry lawn ferries. Jim came home from the hospital and Diane and Jim were surprised to find their lawn had been mowed and things weed-eated and trimmed. Seems Martha Harding and helpers from the 50's Roadhouse went to work on the Boyer yard since Jim could not do it. It is nice to have such good friends!
Someone removed part of our fence between properties and compromised our security system. They mowed the berries and cut some branches off our shrubs. Yesterday some people were on the property next door and it looked like they were going to fence it. If you remove a fence shouldn't you contact the other property owner?
