** A little old lady was walking down the street dragging two large plastic garbage bags behind her. One of the bags was ripped and every once in a while a $20 bill fell out onto the sidewalk. Noticing this, a policeman stopped her and said, “Ma’am, there are $20 bills falling out of your bag.” “Oh really? Darn it!” said the little old lady. “I’d better go back and see if I can find them. Thanks for telling me, officer.”
“Well now, not so fast,” said the cop. “Where did you get all that money? You didn’t steal it, did you?”
“Oh, no, no,” said the lady. “You see, my back yard is right next to a golf course. A lot of golfers come and pee through a knot hole in my fence right next to my flower garden. It used to really tick me off. Kills the flowers you know. Then I thought ‘why not make the best of it?’ So now I stand behind my fence by the knot hole, real quiet like, with my hedge clippers. Every time some guy sticks his thing through my fence, I surprise him, grab ahold of it and say ‘OK, buddy! Give me $20 or off it comes!”
“Well, that seems only fair,” said the cop laughing. “Ok. Good luck! Oh, by the way, what’s in the other bag?” “Well, not everyone pays.”

We would like to thank you all for another awesome year in the hay business! We look forward to continuing business with you in 2020! We had a decent size sale due to taking a day off last week. We will have a sale on Thursday, but volume may be restricted by the weather.  Market today was called steady to strong on both alfalfa and grass. Quality was pretty good.

** On New Year's Eve, Daniel was in no shape to drive, so he sensibly left his van in the car park and walked home.  As he was wobbling along, he was stopped by a policeman.  'What are you doing out here at four o'clock in the morning?' asked the police officer.

'I'm on my way to a lecture,' answered Roger.

and who on earth, in their right mind, is going to give a lecture at this time on New Year's Eve?' inquired the constable sarcastically.

'My wife,' slurred Daniel grimly.
