We've got an author in the family!

Well, crap.  Seriously?  I haven't updated since NOVEMBER!!!!!????  OMG!!!

Ok, well, there is a lot going on.  First of all, we are thanking the Good Lord above for blessing us with rain this year.  A month ago, we planted one field in haygrazer and two in milo.  All three are up and looking good.  And I do have pics, but they are on my phone and I haven't tried to post blogger stuff from my phone yet.  We are praying that the rains don't stop, and that we are blessed with a good harvest this year.

Next, Jeff wrote a book.  Yup.  A real live, being published book!  It's called, The Republic.  The back jacket is below:

Young and full of life, Jed Wheatherby, a seventeen year old farm boy from a small town on the gulf of Texas, dreams only of following in his family’s footsteps in becoming a US Marine Corps Scout/Sniper.  Just when he thinks he has the world by the tail, the woman of his dreams comes along and sets his heart on fire.  
 
Away at boot camp, the President’s administration persuades Washington D.C. politicians to take away the 2nd amendment right to bear arms, dividing the nation in two.  Texas and other conservative states secede from the union, resulting in a modern day civil war on U. S. soil.  Jed faces leaving his girl to fight for the independence of his beloved Republic state of Texas.  Death, shattered dreams, and family sacrifices result in casualties with a high price to pay.
 
Follow Jed as he pledges his allegiance to the Texas Marine Corps as they fight to protect Conservatism, Independence, and government from a suppressed socialistic Marxist dictator who takes the U. S. by storm.


book cover

What's really kinda freaky about this book is he started writing it last November and finished around February.  A lot of the events taking place in the book later happened in real life here.  We were getting worried that he could predict the future, and worried if the future was going to turn out like the book.  LOL!

Anyway, there is a website for the book: www.jeffessarytherepublic.com.  You can purchase from there using a paypal account.  He's already getting some book signings lined up, as well. I've set up a blog for Jeff on that other website, so if you are interested in that, just keep checking back over there.  The publisher is finishing up with printing and the first copy will be in our hands within days.

I know, I need to post pictures and give better updates.  There is a lot going on around here, so maybe before school starts back up, I can get on that.
