              ****
HAPPY 4TH OF JULY.  We
will see you next Thurs., the 11th.
     *****************
The market continued lower.  Most
1st cutting in alfalfa is new crop and
about 1/2 of the grass sold was new
crop.
           ************
You have to love a nation that
celebrates its Independence
every July 4, not with a parade
of guns, tanks and soldiers who
file by the White House in a
show of strength and muscle, but
with a family picnic where kids
throw Frisbees, the potato salad
gets iffy and flies die from happ-
iness.  Erma Bombeck
Better to starve free than be a
fat slave.  Aesop

Grass was a little lower today,
with a big supply.  Alfalfa held
steady.
            *************
Paul hired a new employee &
asked him to come to his office.
*What is your name?* was 1st
thing Paul asked. *John*, the
new guy replied.  Paul: *Look,
I don't know where you worked
before, but I don*t call anyone by
first names. It breeds familiarity
& that leads to a breakdown in
authority.  I refer to employees
by last name only - Ahders,
Rozeboom, Pollema, etc.  Now
that we got that straight, what
is your last name?*  John sighed,
*Darling, my name is John
Darling.*  Paul: *OK, John, the
next thing I want to tell you....*

Overall the market was lower today.
There was a large volume of hay.
The quality was average.

What is the smallest caliber gun
you wuold trust to protect yourself?
A BERETTA JETFIRE testimonial:
  While out walking along the edge
of a bayou just below Houma, LA,
with my soon to be ex-husband, dis-
cussing property settlement &
oher divorce issues, we were sur-
prised by a huge 12 ft. alligator,
suddenly emerging from the murky
water & charging us with its large
jaws wide open.  She must have
been protecting her nest because
she was extremely aggressive.  If
I had not had my little Beretta Jetfire
.25 caliber pistol with me, I would not
be here today.  Just one shot to my
estranged husband*s knee cap was
all it took.  The gator got him easily
& I was able to escape by just
walking away at a brisk pace.  It*s
the best pistol in my collection.  Plus
the amount I saved in lawyer*s fees
was more worth than the purchase of
the gun.

From Bill Rozeboom:  An artist asked the gallery
owner if there had been any interest in his paint-
ings on display there.  *I have good news and
bad news,* the owner replied.  *The good news
is that a gentleman inquired about your work
and wondered if it would appreciate in value
after your death.  When I told him it would, he
bought all 15 paintings.*    *That is wonderful!
What is the bad news?* asked the artist.
*He said he was your doctor.*
