We would like to thank all veterans past and present for your service to our country. We had a very small crowd in today. Market was lower on a very light test with very little buyer interest.

DON’T FORGET: Monday sales have started!! ATTENTION ALL HAY HAULERS: The road through Hudson is closed and you will not be able to get through that way. It will remain closed until further notice.

** My husband and I were dressed and ready to go out for a lovely evening of dinner and theater. Having been burgled in the past, we turned on a ‘night light’ and then put the cat in the backyard. When our Uber arrived, we walked out our front door and out rather chubby cat scooted between our legs inside and ran up the stairs. Because our cat likes to chase our parakeet, we didn’t want to leave them unchaperoned, so my husband ran inside to retrieve her and put her in the back yard again. Because I didn’t want the Uber driver to know our house was going to be empty all night, I explained to him that my husband would be out momentarily as he was just bidding my mother. A few minutes later he got into the Uber all hot and bothered and said (to my growing horror and amusement) as the car pulled away, “Sorry it took so long, but the big stupid was hiding under the bed and I had to poke her in the butt with a coat hanger to get her to come out. She tried to take off, so I grabbed her by the neck and wrapped her in a blanket so she wouldn’t scratch me like she did last time. But it worked! I hauled her fat butt down the stairs and threw her into the backyard. She had better not poop in the vegetable garden again.” The silence in the Uber was deafening.

Thank you to all the participants in the chili cook-off! It was a great success! Paul was the winner (the employees think the contest was rigged.) We had some excellent alfalfa in today. Alfalfa sold a little lower today. We had decent buyer attendance, but poor buyer participation. Grass sold mostly steady. Limited supply on new stalks in today but sold well- lightly tested. No straw sold today.

** Minnesota is under a tornado warning. It is advised that everyone seek shelter in the Vikings stadium. No chance of a touchdown there!

**I rang the doctor and said, “Quick! My wife pregnant wife is going into labor, what should I do?” He said, “Is this her first child?” I replied, “No, this is her husband.”
