Jon, Mary & Anna's visit

I was able to snap this picture of Mary, Anna and Jon this noon after we had finished our sandwich lunch. They have visited the Pioneer Village in Minden,  spent a day in Lincoln, have been out to see the new Owens house, and we've done a lot of visiting.  This has been a big year for Jon with his taking on the persona of Justin Morrill, the author of the Morrill Act 150 years ago that provided for the US Land Grant College system as well as the establishment of the US Department of Agriculture. When he does these reenactments he tries to dress, talk and act as closely to the way Congressman Morrill might have at the time. (hence the long hair).
