We had a good crowd in for our rainy sale today. Alfalfa sold steady to strong with decent quality. Grass quality was decent and sold steady to strong, but still lacking a bit. Straw sold steady. DON’T FORGET: Monday sales will be starting again in November!! ATTENTION ALL HAY HAULERS: Beginning Sept 5th, the road through Hudson will be closed and you will not be able to get through that way. It will remain closed for the month of September.

** A brunette goes into a doctor’s office and says that her body hurts wherever she touches it. “Impossible” says the doctor. “Show me.” She takes her finger and presses on her elbow, and screams in agony. She pushes her knee and screams, pushes her ankle and screams and so it goes on; everywhere she touches makes her scream with pain. The doctor says, “You’re not really a brunette are you?” She says, “No, I dyed my hair. I’m naturally blonde.” “I thought so,” he says. “Your finger is broken.”

** This little old lady goes to the doctor and says, “Doctor, I have this problem with passing gas, but it really doesn’t bother me too much. It never smells and it’s always silent. As a matter of fact, I’ve passed gas at least 20 times since I’ve been here in your office. You didn’t know that I was passing gas because it doesn’t smell and it’s silent.  The doctor says, “I see. Take these pills and come back to see me next week.” The next week the lady goes back. “Doctor,” she says, “I don’t know what you have me, but now my passing gas… although still silent, it stinks terribly.” “Good” said the doctor, “now that we’ve cleared up you sinuses, we’ll start working on your hearing.”
