** Don’t forget to turn your bathroom scales back 15 pounds Wednesday night at 1 A.M. for Thanksgiving.
**A cowboy told his grandson the secret to a long life. He said, “You gotta sprinkle a little gunpowder on your oatmeal, see. If you do, you’ll live to a nice ripe old age.” So the cowboy did this religiously every day and sure enough, lived to the nice ripe old age of 96. When he died he left behind 4 children, 8 grandchildren, 15 great-grandchildren… and a 16 foot hole in the wall of the crematorium.

Alfalfa sold steady to stronger today on the mid-quality, and sold weaker on lower and upper quality. Grass sold weaker. Generally most of the quality was average at best with a few exceptions. Bedding is scare. We will not be having a sale next week Thursday due to Thanksgiving!! We will still be having a Monday sale.

** A police officer pulled over a driver and informed him that, because he was wearing his seat belt, he had just won $1,000 in a safety competition. “What are you going to do with the prize money?” the officer asked. The man responded, “I guess I’ll go to driving school and get my license.” At that moment, his wife, who was seated next to him, chimed in, “Officer, don’t listen to him. He’s a smart Alec when he’s drunk.” This woke up the guy in the back seat, who, when he saw the cop blurted out, “I told you we wouldn’t make it very far in this stolen car!” At that moment there was a knock from the trunk and a voice asked, “Are we over the border yet?”
