Good morning everybody ! Still windy here this morning and at 44 degrees - a little brisk out .
Ma --- Are you up early , OR , just have not ben to bed yet ?
Had a great evening last night ! That dang Alan j. ( Alan Jackson ) made me drink to many beers last night
I DVR his concert from last week and last night was a good night to watch it - It was at Red Rocks ! Out Mel's way - I think that is a must go to place for me . Back in the day - we had seen Alan 2 or 3 times in concert , he always put on a outstanding show . And of course - Mr. B loved it ! When music is on , it's play ball time for him .
Some big decisions to be made today . Worked on it all last week , maybe a shift in what I plant and where , along with buying a new to me , grain drill to plant soybeans . Spent last week looking for one , One in Kansas and 3 in NB . Problem was they had to break it down to transport it here and the cost in trucking was 5 grand to get it here .
I did find one here in Indiana , but it is smaller than I want . Oh forgot , found the ideal one in Michigan , but the row spacing was wider than I wanted .
In changing may planting - then I need to adjust what seed I need - in my case that means getting less corn and adding beans - Talked to seed dealer first to see if seed was available before getting to deep into this , which he said we were good to go .
So , how are all you new to working at home getting along ? Kadin is a helper here - well , all of our Dobers have been great office help ! You should see some of the checks I have sent out - Some how , they manage to hit my hand when writing my name and then there is this line going off the check , funny part ? I have had to make some calls to where these checks end up , when they here it's me - the first thing they say is --- I see Kadin was helping you - lol
One last thing , We will be doing a first here mid week , A on line funeral
Friends since childhood - class mates , neighbors and a farmer , passed away last week . What a tuff guy he was , Back 30 years ago , he had a aneurism in his head , he had to learn to walk again , and had to wear a brace on his leg + he had limited use of one arm , But he farmed on ! Another friend built a ladder that could be raised and lowered so he could get into his combine .
One time - he really got pizzed at me ! He needed batteries for his tractor , I told him I was going to Rushville and I would pick them up for him - these things were very heavy - When I got back - he was not there , So I put them in for him , right when I got done - he pulled in , he was upset with me ! He said I didn't need to put them in - he could have done it - He was full of ykw ! And he knew it , yet , he was going to prove he didn't need any help , May be why we were good friends all them years - we were both hard headed - lol
Kim and I were the last 2 from our Ag class days to still be farming ( there was 26 of us in that class ) and now --- I'm the last one
The cool thing was that Kim's Mom and my Mom were also classmates , so we really did grow up together - lol We had more than our share of good times
RIP ole Buddy , we are all so sad - yet the fun times will always be with us .
