I really feel the urge to watch the world series, but I just can’t bring myself to watch any professional sports this year. The Dragon Lady is weaker than I. Addict. Yet, I do fondly remember watching the A’s versus Dodgers in ’88.
I needed the tractor out of the machine shed this morning. Due to the large amounts of sleet & ice, I had to dig a lot in order to get the doors to slide. If I build a new building, it will not have sliding doors on it. Due to this exercise, I now realize that I may have to scoop ice in hell. Is that possible?
Actually, I would now rank scooping/chipping ice # 3, selling lawnmowers #2 and in a huge lead, dealing with doe goats as the #1 activity in hell.
No matter the species, people better make sure that the livestock all get a good drink at least twice a day, during these extended cold spells. A fresh drink of water is of utmost importance as the chemical reaction known as digestion depends on water. A drink of water will actually warm an animal. Numerous blankets and protection from the wind & ice are equally important.
I don’t know how you Yankees raise livestock in the crappy winter conditions. I guess if I lived in Indiana, Minnesota, Nebraska, Ohio or the Dakotas….I would not raise livestock. I would probably just own a bar. It seems to me that between the misery of raising stock in that environment and then actually dealing with livestock AND cold weather would make non-drinkers want to drink-a lot! That last sentence doesn’t make sense but, somehow, I think you all understand it.
If I was to get a chance to sit down and talk with any big name person on how they found success–politicians, athletes, writers, movie people, musicians–I think that I would choose—–
Dolly Parton. Seriously. That chick came from nowhere. Doesn’t seem to have made a deal with the devil. Worked hard. I just think that her career was from hard work, smarts and dedication. Maybe I’m wrong. It wouldn’t be the first time.
The national FFA convention started today. Duke was a national proficiency finalist in the Ag Mechanics Design & Fabrication area. He didn’t win. But we are still proud of his FFA career. The Kelln Kids are ZERO for 3 at the national proficiency finalist level. Okay…..but at least they made it there three times. As a family, we are pleased.
Kela reports that there are a lot of fireworks in LA on this evening.
Stay warm and yet, stay cool.
Have a good one and a better tomorrow.
