Mom & Dad visit

Mom & Dad came for the weekend for a combo birthday and thanksgiving visit.
Mom brought her new Brother Serger machine and learned to thread it and do some things.
Dad helped me celebrate my hillbilly heritage and put a Menards camo tarp over my old leaky shed for the winter. It actually looks better than the crummy remainders of the shingles that are on it.
He also showed off pictures of his cage attachment for his International 424 tractor bucket (Westendorf I believe). He can stand in it and be lifted (or launched) into the air and more safely trim trees or change light bulbs, etc.
They also got to attend my Cedar Brewing hockey game against the Gears where we won in a shootout in overtime. (I didn't participate in any of the point scoring).
