This morning my son said that his ear hurt. I asked him on the inside or the outside. He walks out the front door and comes back in and says “Both.” It’s moments like this that make me wonder if I’m saving too much for college.

We had a lighter test today. Quality was extremely low- most of the grass was either CRP or ditch hay. Alfalfa sold weakly. Not a big buying crowd in attendance today, mostly due to silage chopping.

We now have the option available for you to buy select loads of hay through our website. The loads can be viewed on our website under the “Hay for Sale” tab.

At a wedding ceremony, the priest asked if anyone had anything to say concerning the union of the bride and groom. It was their time to stand and talk, or forever hold their peace. The moment of utter silence was broken by a young, beautiful woman carrying a child. She started walking toward the pastor slowly. Everything quickly turned to chaos. The bride slapped the groom, the groom’s mother fainted. The groomsmen were giving each other looks and wondering how best to help save the situation. The priest asked the woman, “Can you tell us why you came forward? What do you have to say?” The woman replied, “We can’t hear in the back.”
