** The doctor that had been seeing an 80 year-old woman for most of her life, had finally retired. At her next check-up, the new doctor told her to bring a list of all the medications that had been prescribed to her. As the doctor was looking through these, his eyes grew wide as he realized that Grandma had a prescription for birth control pills. “Mrs. Smith, do you realize that these are BIRTH CONTROL pills?” “Yes, they help me sleep at night.” “I assure you, Mrs. Smith, that there is absolutely NOTHING in these pills that could possibly help you sleep!” The old lady reached out and patted the young Doctor’s knee…. “Yes, dear, I know that. But every morning, I grind one up and mix it in the glass of orange juice that my 16 year old granddaughter drinks, and believe me, it definitely helps me sleep at night.” ---You gotta love Grandmas!

Our yard is once again high and dry as it has been for the past week. We are once again fully operational! Market was lower today. We had a lot of low to mid-range hay of both alfalfa and grass. Demand was decent today. We are selling some trucks, trailers, and also a 1066 tractor. You can find details at the bottom of the events page on our website, or you can call Paul at 712-470-1274.

** I was driving along one day when I saw the flash of a traffic camera. I figured that my picture had been taken for exceeding the speed limit, even though I knew that I was not speeding. Just to be sure, I went around the block and passed the same spot, driving even more slowly, but again the camera flashed. Now I began to think that this was quite funny, so I drove even slower as I passed there once more, but the traffic camera flashed again. I tried a fourth and a fifth time with the same results and was now laughing as the camera flashed while I rolled past at a snail’s pace. Two weeks later, I got five tickets in the mail for driving without a seat belt. Ya know, I guess you just can’t fix stupid…
