Friendship and Creating Keepsakes winner!

I LOVE Fridays!  I love that there is nothing that I have to do tomorrow except visit with an old friend!   I am super excited to see my friend Angie and her family!  They decided to take a last minute road trip to Kansas  for the weekend.  The last time I saw Angie was 3 years ago!  Yikes!  They came down to Texas in 2007 for a visit during cotton harvest.  Here are a few pictures:

These bails get picked up by trucks and taken to the cotton gin to get cleaned:

The clean cotton is pressed into a bail & hauled off to make jeans & other goods!
That's probably more than what you wanted to know about cotton!  :)
