I'd like to introduce our new in laws. Kent and Debbie are the proud parents of our soon to be daughter-in-law, Katie. She and our son Parker will be married in August. We couldn't have picked a better daughter-in-law. Katie and Debbie and Kent are from far western Oklahoma; couldn't be farther across the state from us. In fact, they live out in the big sky part of Oklahoma, the panhandle in fact, no man's land I've heard it called. In reality, it's God's country, totally different from our part of the state and I look forward to going out there some day soon. Antelope, pheasants, mesas and fields of wheat as far as the eye can see. Our new in-laws are wheat farmers. Generations of their family have been farming there; growing wheat for the world's tables.
They don't get to leave the farm often, but when they do, Kent and Debbie head off on Kent's BMW motorcycle. These things are very upscale now. His has GPS and their helmets looked like something out of Terminator. The bike didn't even have a bug splat on it. After stopping by to meet us, they headed off to tour Arkansas.
It's nice to gain a new daughter-in-law, but it's even better to gain a new family.
