"Lord, I am not worthy that You should enter under my roof, but only say the word and my soul shall be healed."
The storms the last few years have brought them too often for my liking. The insurance companies really don't like it, either. Living on the hill sure has its cost. We had a leak near one valley and now its repaired but the shingles are brittle and doesn't have the right underlayment.
The neatest day was when they hung like monkeys on ropes off the steep barn roof pulling nails and screwing down the metal. So many nails had rusted the roof was coming off. We really need a steel roof on the house also but couldn't afford it 8 years ago and can't afford it now.
The Brown County Fair ends tomorrow and I don't think we will get to go down to my old home fair this year. "I got mtart in 4-H" at that fair in 1958 with my prized Holstein heifer. I wish I had pictures of my projects like my kids do.
They always have a good crop show there because it's late September and because they have held the tradition. The biggest pumpkin weighed 569 lbs this year. They had an inch and a half rain Monday night but it hasn't seemed to hurt attendance. I heard they had a real good tractor pull last night.
Here are some discussions I liked this week.
The Republican Party is Dead.
An interesting view of Michelle Obama.
Anyone else get a letter for a refuge audit?
French GMO study.
Landlord wants to hock(hook) onto my tile.
Arsenic in rice?
Moose in the corn field.
Why didn't I go away from no-till sooner?
And you MUST read this farmers serious question, is there a guide for women? It's hilarious and pretty true!
Your old writer better rest up for the grandkids tomorrow!
