It is Sunday, July 22, 2007. It is my last day here in Florida where I have been for over 2 weeks visiting my parents. It has been nice to be here, though I wish the reason for my visit was a different reason than it is. My dad has terminal cancer. I wanted to come here and spend some time with him and help mom out. I leave in the morning to fly home to New York. Although I miss my husband and daughter, I am quite torn as I approach the time I leave here.
Dad has been trying to sell his collection of antique Farmall tractors he has. A man arrived here yesterday from Alabama to look at the tractors. It had been a week since he had left the house and this trip was not easy for him. He got really tired out. The picture I am posting here is one of dad and I yesterday at the Florida Fly Wheelers where he has some of his tractors stored. The magazine that we are holding in the picture is an issue of Farm and Ranch Living. Dad is on the cover of that magazine. It is the current August/September 2007 issue. I am right proud that my dad is on the cover of this magazine. It is a great tribute to him and his love of tractors.

It is good that you could stop in to see what is going on with the Slater Family.
