Woops, Late Again…

18671227_4489Silly girl14195461841_2686274801832989762_nAs a youngster, I heard all kinds of ditties about when to do this and that…One common saying in our area by the old timers was ‘plant corn when an oak leaf is the size of a squirrel’s ear’!! By the looks, with the heat and moisture we’ve had last couple days, I’m late again, pretty much the Ground Hog Day scenario I find myself in most every year…

Most likely if I was looking at a few hundred or thousand acres instead of my, maybe 40, would most certainly be in he-bee-gee-bee coma…Expert get me out of this shock!!!

For me, Mother Nature rules when she’s ok with it then corn gets planted!!! That is why today (Friday) after the heavy rains of last night (Thursday) my focus turned to cleaning outdoor calf pens and moving calves around!

Not sure if being up so late with power outage then waking up to still no power made me slow, but the calf project took most of my day! Hoping with power back on my nights sleep may be enough so as tomorrow the plows will be back in the ground and just maybe will get the discs fitting up some ground which means may be planting corn in a couple days, Mother Nature willing, of course!!!

***Silly Sa-lee is still silly after moving her to the bigger area and different stall to run into…did this in the feeder when she was out in the shed area, too. I guess she likes to feel tall?>?

My Farmer and Me…Where was it?..Busy day ahead…

4 babies18556120_448440238842570_7052832019448786175_nOkay, so where were you hiding the other day? Only three with Mom and Dad two days ago, so thought we had lost another one….Well, it is found!!!

Busy day ahead here…regular chores, getting some food together for a neighbor/friend family who just lost their husband/father…invited to Grand March at H.F. Junior Prom where my grand daughter, Jayda is a sophomore and is attending with a Junior…exciting…

Another grand daughter is going to one in the next town over, but not sure on the schedule on that one, so accepted the other invitation. Have a great time, Olivia.

Was hoping to work in the garden, but Ed says he has to disc it because of the grass already started. Ok, so I will get some seed in the ground tomorrow…still have tomatoes to repot, also. I guess I may be rushing it, given the weather lately…

Have a good day everyone..

My Farmer and Me…Not again…

18527574_44power out8217678864826_5238462565322430160_nI believe this is the 5th time our power has gone off in the last month or so…once again  Lil Blue is hooked up to the generator …I am so thankful that we have the generator in these situations…

Just makes me wonder what Mother Nature is thinking…feel bad for those neighbors who do not have this luxury of back up power…especially the elderly who have oxygen, etc… must be very scary!!

Well, animals got moved today, pens got cleaned out and the power did come back on a couple of hours ago…As Ed said, feel better already!!!

My Lip’s bleeding.

Let’s start much earlier this year when asked the regional milk equipment dealer to have his route truck stop, since he goes just over the hill, say maybe 2 miles away!!! Yea, we’ll have him stop with these parts for you!…a very small order…forty dollars worth of gaskets…on his trip thru next week…

I guess next week is still coming…should be thankful parts came vial mail! No sometime as Forrest said,’shit happens’ BUT I have asked the boss man up there to stop by! Instead of excuses, or should I say lies, just flat out say no…

So I took things into my own hands and called a dealer farther away who has picked u business in the area…and I think we know why…Great, he had his route truck stop, we talked, got prices to compare…said they would be back thru the area in a month and stop…never did!

Why tell someone you’ll get back in touch, then don’t? Make an excuse and stay away…lie even then when asked for a reference, I could say I don’t know, good or bad! Jerks, from your own doing…sorry that’s reality or should I say accountability…

More recently, the inspectors came doing inspections on Stewart’s farms and the processing plant,for a combined score! Was told Stewart’s got a 95 and that they think we got a 99! Just a suggestion and here, again, feathers will be ruffled!!! My 99 was just a small reason Stewart’s got 95 ’cause of our small size, BUT here again I was a positive asset…

I am a human who works hard at his craft and that benefits you…don’t think size or wealth should dictate mutual respect!…Just wondering, should I shower more, or am I just not that likable???

Mailers…

15541152beanie-and-jockey_372947579725170_8275690691304605868_nDo we really need a flyer with big pop-outs on $500 dollars savings…no interest for two years on my pre-plan to ease the burden on my loved ones…?People, it is the last thing I’m intending to do and to tell the truth, really NOT in any hurry to set a date yet!!!

Does that trip to the mailbox hoping to see just possibly good, maybe a refund check, or someone, God Forbid, write a letter…

No, it’s save on motorcycle insurance…fool, I don’t even have a motorcycle!!!!

Three trees worth of nonsense for everything having no real worth other than that to make garbage something we might just have enough of…

Hey, just an idea…all of the junk mail must be made from re-cycled material AND if it’s something you don’t want, goes back in the mailbox to be returned to sender!!! They have ‘return to sender’ stickers at the post office, then just maybe in time, they’ll pull an Elvis and leave my mailbox as he left the building!!!

Damned fools never got told to respect their elders, must be…
