two good men today. Anyone available? All my part time help is busy doing other jobs. Maybe 2 men and a truck are available.
I just sent a garbage bag full of jackets and winter coats to Turning Point this morning. LuAnn has a good worker who doesn't have enough (any?)coats so I fixed him up. Tractor Supply has a sale on Carhartt's this week and I love new Carhartt's. It's amazing what you accumulate over time.
Everytime we travel west or east to Pennsylvania we stop at Cabela's. I usually end up buying a coat on sale. The next thing you know, they won't all fit in our mudroom closet. I just cleaned mine out and it is still pretty full.
I need to do that with shoes, too. I have a bunch of good workboots I can't wear comfortably anymore and there is always someone around here who can use a pair. 10 years ago you couldn't give away this stuff and now it's in high demand. There is the American economy for you in Ohio right there.
HOPE Emergency does a good job of distributing these goods to local, needy people. We like helping them. This is their busy week to try and get a Thanksgiving meal to all of their families. I think the number is around 400 right now. The local churches and other groups have been accepting donations for a month or so now.
Those barns housed a lumber store years ago that should have never been built out in the country. It went belly up and a friend of mine bought it. I forget the story how the sisters ended up with it but it must be on their website somewhere.
This was brought up on ag talk this week. "Had a little farm got sold today 67 acres +or- only 52 tillable in 4 fields with a power line running through the biggest field is 17 acres and the smallest is 7 acres trees on 3 sides, a farm place in the middle of it that is sold to someone else no tile and light soils and rolling ground sold today for around $9700.00 an acre tillable and the farmer that bought will have to buy new equipment to farm it because his equipment is to big for it. The 2 guys that bid against each other I heard do not like each other. I wonder who one the fight?"
There are others who have been reporting actual fist fights over land rental and purchase. That's not a good sign! I told them to come to poor old Ohio where 84 acres sold for $3250 per acre last week and 440 acres of rough ground only brought $500,000. Some people can't believe that but it's true.
I better get to work. You have a good day.
