A Quiet Weekend

It was a restful weekend at Bentley. We were honored with the visit of Mr. Melvin Brown from Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minnesota. He is a friend of my grandparents and happened to be visiting in the New York City area. He kindly arranged to pay us a visit. Mr. Brown has a tremendous voice and sang us some old gospel hits like, "I'll Fly Away" and "I am on the Battlefield For My Lord."

Mr. Brown and Dad walk up into the high fields.

Isaac's friend, Patrick, stopped by the farm for a little while as well. Isaac and Patrick worked on trimming Pat's goats for the upcoming fair. Patrick gave us some of his logging expertise and helped us to cut down some big dead trees in our side yard.

Meanwhile, the garden continued to grow and we began to eat our first harvest of sweet corn.
