I received these pictures from Dan 9/6/16. I'm sorry I'm so slow about getting them on the blog. I could blame it on to a lot of things, but won't go into that now. He signs his messages "Star." He just knows he is my Star student. :) Actually, he is - along with many others.
Here are a few pics of the Saline River at the Hoisington farm 8 miles SW of Paradise. It is where Agnes Sims lived when she taught school. Then I took some pics of what use to be a 9.5 acre pond. After 6 years of drought the pond has been bone dry but the rains this summer had it filling up and last week it was finally full. This land belongs to John & Yvonne Driscoll (Van sold it to them about 6 years ago). John took Yvonne out on Saturday evening to see the pond as neither of them had ever seen it completely full. That only lasted a few hours as by Sunday morning the pond was empty due to the dam failing. It is a very sad sight!
