43 for us this year too in on December 20th.
We have lived in Maryland, Oklahoma and Germany. You probably guess it, compliments of Uncle Sam.
Have been here in Kansas, farming and ranching since 1973. We have 4 children and 18 grandchildren with one more on the way. 11 boys and 7 girls. Ages from 16 to one year. What a riot when they are all here.
