I would like to share something very personal with you. This is a Family Tree Video I have compiled of my own family. It tells a little family history, and shares a few small vignettes of life. I would like to dedicate this t my late father, David Mitchell (1943-2012).
This is a short documentary piece about Daryl Householder, a horse trainer from the Maud/Seminole, Oklahoma area. This is the story of his overcoming trials and struggles while working to accomplish a calling to help others.

I spent last Saturday at the Pottawatomie County farmers’ market in Shawnee, OK and it just so happened to be the 25th anniversary. I got to meet a lot of interesting people and see some one of a kind sites.
I met Betty Ingham. She sells fresh eggs from her farm, 3 Creeks Ranch, that she and her husband own. She is showing Tyler Countess how to make pottery using her traveling wheel. She and her husband are also known as The Hairy Potters, and used to own a kiln at their home, but sadly it was destroyed in one of the unusual Oklahoma earthquakes last year. For more information about Betty: www.3-creeks.com or 405-566-9952/405-567-8603.
Another really cool thing I encountered was this Country Peddler truck. It contained various different products from different sellers, being so diverse as bath salts, plum jelly, bbq sauce, and ground goat meat. I spoke with the owner of this truck, Jerri Parker, and she was kind enough to take a little bit of time to tell me how this idea bloomed. It started a few years ago by her son, Calvan. It began as an FFA project to promote recycling and healthier food by raising baby chicks to lay farm fresh, free range eggs and evolved into this mobile food truck.
For more information on Calvan’s Feathered Friends: www.imalayer.com email: Jerri.Parker@cromwellok.com Phone # 405-590-2822. Calvan’s Feathered Friends is a member of the Oklahoma Food Co-op and part of the Oklahoma Farm to Fork Market www.oklahomafarmtoforkmarket.com.
One of the venders that Jerri stocks on her and Calvan’s truck is Gary Johnson, creator of Pigcicle BBQ Sauce. I have to say it is probably one of the best BBQ sauces I have tried. It comes in hot and original.

So, after buying some goodies and trying some good food I called it a day.
