The Dragon Lady and I took a gator ride tonight, looking for firefllies. I have always enjoyed watching fireflies and I especially like it when they hit the windshield. Some parts glow for awhile. A mile south of our little piece of paradise, we found a whole pile of firelies along a waterway. It was really cool. It has been a long time since I saw that many fireflies at one time. Watching this made me think of an age-old question. What is the last thing that goes through a bug’s mind when it hits a windshield?
Before we went looking at fireflies, we loaded a trailer load of small square alfalfa bales. She drove, I loaded, no fights. I’m kind of flying on one wing after the barn incident, so I didn’t load as many as we could have hauled. But it will be alright. However, a crew from the Shattuck area finished off the field and then came by the house. We then discussed low interest rates and where to borrow money. It is nice to have a lending institution that knows you and says,”Yep, you’re covered.” Unless, you are in the goat business, and they say, “Holy $h!t! For a goat? Yeah, you’ve always paid us. We’ll try it again. Can you get insurance on that purchase?” More importantly, how to save a $. My Dad is a financial genius. But that proper logic doesn’t alwyas apply in this business. Sometimes, you just have to roll with your gut insticts. But those insticts, don’t have income, just expenses. I don’t know if this is right or not, but I have noticed that the less I count money, the more I have. I don’t know much, but I do know that you CANNOT worry about every dollar. You will miss the good stuff worrying about a dollar. Not every dollar is worth it.
Hay is always money well spent. Store it right and feed as needed and it is a good investment. If something isn’t right about it, feed it to open does. And if it goes bad, sell it to a feedlot that is grinding and mixing. They can use it. Like money, and evenings with fireflies, don’t waste it.
