75 Loads 

Good sale today.  Buyer attendance was good.  New alfalfa that was dry sold good.  Some of new alfalfa is the best 1st cutting we have seen in years.  If the hay appeared at all wet the buyers stayed away.  Old hay was much lower with little demand.

”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.

 **A week ago, my Mother-in-Law started reading, “The Exorcist.” She said it was the most evil book she had ever read. So evil in fact, she couldn’t finish reading it so she took it over to the beach and threw it into the ocean off of a fishing pier. I went and bought another copy, ran it under the faucet and left it in the night table drawer by her bed. If I go missing, you now know why.

 **  I told my husband I would be home by midnight- “I promise!” Well, the hours passed and the margaritas went down way too easily. Around 3 a.m., a bit loaded, I headed for home. Just as I got in the door, the cuckoo clock in the hall way started up and cuckooed 3 times. Quickly realizing my husband would probably wake up, I cuckooed another 9 times.

I was really proud of myself for coming up with such a quick-witted solution in order to escape a possible conflict with my husband. (even when totally smashed, 3 cuckoos plus 9 cuckoos equals 12 cuckoos = MIDNIGHT!) The next morning my husband asked me what time I got in, and I told him “midnight”…. He didn’t seem mad at all… whew.. I got away with that one! Then he said, “We need a new cuckoo clock.” When I asked why he said, “Well, last night our clock cuckooed three times, then said ‘Oh crap’ cuckooed 4 more times, cleared its throat, cuckooed another 3 times, then giggled, cuckooed twice more, and then tripped over the coffee table and farted.”
