Market was about $10 off on grass and alfalfa. We had a large supply and beautiful weather today. Not as many calves coming in due to Thanksgiving calls for less demand.

WE WILL CONTINUE HAVING MONDAY AND THURSDAY SALES THROUGH APRIL.

My grandfather told me that he saw The Titanic and that from the beginning he warned all the people that the boat would sink, but they ignored him. However, they were warned again on several occasions, until they kicked him out of the cinema.

Singing in the shower is all fun and games until you get shampoo in your mouth, then it just becomes a soap opera.

The quality varied today. Prices were mostly steady today, with slightly weaker on the grass. There is not a lot of demand for cornstalks.

A man in northern Minnesota woke up one morning to find a bear on his roof. He looked in the Yellow Pages and sure enough, there was an ad for

Up North Bear Removers. He called them up and the man said he would be there within an hour. The bear remover arrived and got out of his van with a ladder, a baseball bat, a 12 ga. shotgun, and a mean-looking heavily scarred pit bull. The homeowner asked what the plan of action was.

The bear remover said. "I'm going to place the ladder up against the roof and go up there and knock the bear off with the bat. When he falls off, the pit bull is trained to grab the bear by the testicles and not let go. The bear will then be subdued and I will put him in the cage in the back of the van."

The homeowner asked,What is the shot gun for?
If the bear knocks me off the roof, you shoot the dog!
