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!*

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.*
