The market was lower across
the board.  The quality varied
a lot today.
*************************
We apologize for no report for
last week.  We are having inter-
net carrier problems & are wait-
ing for a new carrier.  We always
have a hard copy of sale results
in our office, should you desire
to pick one up.  
*************************
THUNDER IN THE VALLEY (huge
tractor pull) is this weekend
RAGBRAI hits Rock Valley next
weekend. ******************  
2 nerds were riding a tandem bike.
Guy in front slams on brakes, gets
off & lets air out of the tires.  Back
nerd asks why he was doing that.
Guy says, *My seat was too high
and hurting my butt.  I wanted
to lower it a bit.*  Back nerd had
enough, jumps off, loosens his
seat & spins it around to face
the other direction.  Guy asks,
*Why are you doing that?*
Back nerd says, *Look mate, if
you are going to do stupid stuff,
I am going home!*

ROCK VALLEY HAY SALES REPORT
July 24, 2014 - Thursday
81  Loads Today        Market continued low on a rainy day.   RAGBRAI reports were very favorable as far as being in our fair city were concerned.  It was a fun weekend for all of us.   Bikers are now near the east side of the state. Kudos to all who finished all the days.  What stamina!                                     
*************************
Jess & May were in the living room discussing a *Living Will*.     *Just so you know, I never want to live in a vegetative state, dependent on some machine and fluids from a bottle.  If that ever happens, just pull the plug,* said Jess.  May gets up, unplugs the TV and throws out all the beer.  
What occurs once in a minute, twice in a moment & not once in a thousand years?    The letter M.

July 31, 2014 - Thursday
 59   Loads Today.    Alfalfa sold steady.  Grass quality was average today.  Over all, compared with last week, the sale was called about steady.                                             
**************************************************************************************
Now that my leg is healed, we are thinking VACATION.  We went shopping last week and passed a display of bathing suits.  It has been at least 10 years and more than 40 pounds since I even considered buying a suit.  So I asked Jim, *Should I get a bikini or an all-in-one?*   *Better get a bikini.  You*d never get it all in one.*  He*s still in intensive care.                                                                                                                                                                                                                 Youth is a gift of nature; age is a work of art.

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.*
