Beautiful day. Froze quite hard last night, ice and ground was froze hard. Sidney started for Fulton at 7 a.m. with 2 scrolls. The children went to school. I went out to the trap Sidney set for a woodchuck, and the drake heard me and followed the children and myself back home. I hulled a lot of corn and it is just fine too.
