I remembered how to log in.
No, it is not frosty yet. It is still plenty hot. However, I have had a hard time driving past a Wendy’s this summer. I like a frosty! Only this spring did I realize that you could get a vanilla flavored Frosty. Why would anybody want that? The original chocolate Frosty is the dairy treat of choice at Wendy’s. And I’m not much of a chocolate eater.
I ain’t lying when I say that I have used numerous offensive words. Some I haven’t used in years. Some I shouldn’t have used today but it happens. I could really care less about Cale Gundy resigning as an assistant football coach at the U of O. But there is something about this whole deal that doesn’t pass the smell test. Sure, he obviously read something out loud that used an
Just about every profession has some sort of inservice training each year. When I did the Deere thing, we had to take so many classes from John Deere University each year. So were in-person training while some were online classes. The teaching profession always has inservice to start the school year. It varies from district to district but some of it is basic business type stuff while other sessions
A whole lot of this country has been needing a rain. Some more than others. Those of you from I-35 east in Oklahoma and a lot in the midwest truly do not know what dry is. Sure, you’ve been drier than what you are used to but not like some of us. And after driving down around Stephenville, TX this past weekend, I feel a bit guilty. Those fields
When Kela turned 21, we asked her what she wanted for her birthday. She replied, “A family vacation that doesn’t involve a stock show, John Deere meetings or ag teacher meetings.” So, we went to Costa Rica. It was a phenomenal trip. As part of the adventures, we went zip lining through the jungle canopy. Fun. Tammy had a goal. She wanted her family picture put in the Eskimo Joe’s
I spent most of last week hauling a team of livestock judgers. It was not our best week of marking cards. Not terrible. It just could’ve been better. Are the kids to blame? Sure. But the majority of the blame lies with me. I wasn’t prepared and in turn, I did not have them properly prepared. I’ll be honest. I did not want to go to the Big 3
I spent this morning loading small square bales of alfalfa hay. Really high quality stuff. As I was stacking hay on the trailer, a neighbor pulled into the field with a New Holland stack wagon and began loading and stacking bales. And thanks to a Bob May podcast, all I could think about was, “What in the hell is a harrow bed?” Other than Bob, I have never heard these machines called
It is Friday. All day long. Looking at the weather report reminds me of the all-time great movie Good Morning Vietnam. If you don’t know it, look it up. Robin Williams was so good! Yes, it is hot and it is going to continue to be hot. Summer crops are burning up. Hay was already scarce but it isn’t looking good. But it could be worse. We could live in California. Wednesday
FNA! It is Friday. Although, I stay busy throughout the summer months with FFA/Agventures, everyday is like a Friday in my world. I do enjoy not having much of a daily routine, however, my personality NEEDS a daily routine. When I’m not, I can lose track of time, dates, etc. I am about ready to be on a regular schedule. Which means at some point, I’m going to have
