Got a spare tractor?

September 9th, 2007 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

Some people have really cool rides like my brother in law, Vern. Mine’s not quite that hot.  And it’s really not hot when it’s in this condition….. When you mow 16 acres with a small rider like this it really sucks when it goes on the blink.

It’s time for the State Fair

September 8th, 2007 · 4 Comments · Uncategorized

We arrived just in time to attend the Dexter cattle show since last year we went the second weekend and by that time they were all gone.  We’re interested in Dexter cattle because Rebecca, the lady who sold us the farm and my midwife for Vincent’s homebirth, used to have them and talked about how […]

Look closely when you drive country roads

September 7th, 2007 · No Comments · Uncategorized

I’ve driven this back-road so many times over the last few years and have always wanted to stop at this little cemetery.  I finally did. Nothing much in either direction.  There’s no farmhouse or church for miles around this little plot.  It’s about a third of an acre and sits in the corner of a […]

My hero

September 6th, 2007 · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

We all have a hero don’t we?  Well I’ve got a new one and man have I got a story to tell you.  It was fate that we met and I couldn’t be more happy.  Oh I know, you’re wondering about Ed aren’t you?  Well, don’t get me wrong, he’s a hero to me alright.  […]

Meatpacking with Carol

September 6th, 2007 · No Comments · Uncategorized

Have you ever bought your meat directly from a packing place?  You should.  We are lucky enough to have a wonderful old fashioned customer oriented meat market right up the road in Canton about 10 miles.  Carol runs the place and how she manages to be so professional and personable is beyond me.  She’s the […]

I feel old. Really, really old.

September 5th, 2007 · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

If you’re wanting to shake that little jump in your step right out and totally deflate your I’m-40-but-can-still-hang-with-the-hip-kids just head yer butt right over to MySpace.com.  While my mother-in-law (yeah, how WACKED is this I ask you?) was here over the weekend she took me into the office and showed me my stepdaughter’s pages.  She […]

More harvesting with Floyd

September 4th, 2007 · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

Jennifer and I went for a ride all morning and as we arrived home we saw Floyd and the boys pulling in the corn field across the road.  We can only grow field corn in these parts which is used for feed.  Sweet corn, suitable for humans, needs a lot of water so they grow […]

I have a worm

September 3rd, 2007 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

Don’t you hate this internet virus and worm or trojan stuff when you haven’t a clue what to do?  All I know is I’ve received over 3,000 emails today telling me my email was undeliverable and I dang sure don’t send out 3,000 emails in a day.  I’ve run Norton’s, adaware, some stinger worm removal, […]

Y’all missed a great cookout

September 2nd, 2007 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

We got up bright and early to begin preparations while it was still cool outside.  Ed figured it was a good time to trim tree branches so he’d cut them and load them into the mower trailer.  Problem was, Moo was out.  Damn cow.  Anytime Ed does anything outside she just has to be right […]

Harvesting with Floyd

September 2nd, 2007 · No Comments · Uncategorized

Yesterday Floyd Nickle from across the rode was harvesting his milo so Vincent and I hopped in the van to snap some pictures.  In return for taking his son home he gave me unrestricted access and I planned to get up close and personal with the big combines.  Then they fired those babies up, started […]
