How Many Bushels Is This Going To Cost?
This home remodeling has gotten to a lofty price the past few years. If you don't think we have inflation, go price some items. I will have to say LuAnn can find the best deals on the better quality of about anything we buy.
First, we have to cut a wall out in the basement to get access under this old house to a sinking floor in the living room. That has to come first. We lifted one corner a few years ago and now the other corner on the same wall is low. I don't know if we have some soft or rotten timbers or not, we will have to dig our way to it by hand.
It looks like the Amish on the roof fixed the leak. It hasn't leaked since. We are hopefully past the damage of the Jerecho winds or whatever they called them June 29. I still have a sagging door on the old barn, though. I hope Bill gets the new fuel injection line so we can get that tractor moving, it has been sitting there too long right behind the sagging door.
I just scouted my wheat to see if it will come up before the cold front sets in. It doesn't look like it but it is coming, there are little sprouts 5 days later. If wheat hits $25 like Mark Wright thinks, the money problem for the bathrooms will be solved!
Harvest has been going slow here, I don't see much done. Everyone is waiting for drier conditions. I hope they come soon because just about every field is ready to harvest. People are really dragging their feet on this corn and bean crop and I can't figure why. The corn is 20% or under and the beans are 15-16 so we are rolling.
I need to snap a picture of the garden and show it to you. We have the best stand of cereals and radish I ever had in any spot, picture perfect like it is supposed to look like the first of October.
The moon is waning and has looked funky the last few nights but people are still pretty hyper like its a full moon. I don't know what is up with that.
Everyone is in a rush to get their work done before the long weekend for some. Most places don't honor Columbus Day but some do. I had to run to FSA and the bank to sign papers before the long weekend.
What do you think of that 7.8% unemployment figure the government pulled out of their hat this morning? Now they are stooping to any trick!
I don't believe it!
