After we got all of our hay moved and Quentin got home on the bus we decided that we would drive our Ranger (ATV) to take Brody back. Quentin and Maci are trying to save money to buy 6 more chickens. In Iowa, pop cans have a redemption value of 5 cents. So, on our way they collected pop cans from the ditches.
As Quentin was walking he stopped and looked kinda funny at something. Then he said, "Huh? A cell phone. That's weird." WHAT!? A cell phone? THAT'S MY CELL PHONE!!! I lost my cell phone about a month ago. The same night Ryan got his tractor stuck and I had to take him a chain. I stood along the side of the road and took a few pictures for my blog post that night: 10 Great Years! It must have fallen out of my pocket when I was taking pictures! Great job, Quentin!
I had an old cell phone that I had hooked up, but it was several years old and didn't have any of my contact's numbers in it. I thought they were all lost. Now, what are the chances that this thing will actually work? There was a ton of snow on the ground the night I lost it, it's snowed twice since then AND it's rained twice. Well.....I plugged it in.....and it's charging!!!
Quentin, you're a hero! So, we had a Hero Party for him. He got to pick anything he wanted for supper. He chose tacos from the Mexican resturant. Sounds good to me!
Oh, and after we got home the kids counted out their "can money" for the chicken fund. The total came to: $7.15 and one cell phone! Not bad!!!
