Market was called steady to strong today. We had lots of buyer interest. Quality varied today. We had quite a bit of good alfalfa in, and grass quality was lacking.

** I was walking with my 5 year old daughter. She picked something up off the ground and started to put it in her mouth. I took the thing away from her and asked her not to do that. “Why?” she asked. “Because it’s been on the ground, and you don’t know where it’s been. It’s dirty. And it probably has germs.” At this point, my daughter looked at me with absolute admiration and asked, “Mom, how do you know all this stuff? You are so smart.” I thought quickly and replied, “All moms know this stuff. It’s on the Mom Test. You have to know it, or they don’t let you be a Mom.” We walked along in silence for two or three minutes, but she was evidently pondering this new information.
“Oh, I get it!” she beamed, “So if you don’t pass the test, you have to be the dad!” “Exactly,” I said.

** Three women, two younger and one senior citizen, were sitting naked in a sauna. Suddenly there was a beeping sound. The young woman pressed her forearm and the beep stopped. The others looked at her questioningly. “That was my pager,” she said. “I have a microchip under the skin of my arm.”

A few minutes later, a phone rang. The second young woman lifted her palm to her ear. When she finished, she explained, “That was my mobile phone. I have a microchip in my hand.”

The older woman felt very low-tech. Not to be out done, she decided she had to do something just as impressive. She stepped out of the sauna and went to the bathroom. She returned with a piece of toilet paper hanging from her rear end. The others raised their eyebrows and stared at her.

The older woman finally said……..”Well, would you look at that…. I’m getting a fax!”

** 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?”

** I went to my nearby pharmacy and asked to speak to the pharmacist on duty. As I waited, I took out my little brown bottle, along with a teaspoon and set them up on the counter. The pharmacist came over, smiled, and asked if he could help me. I said, “Yes! Could you please taste this for me?” Seeing a senior citizen, the pharmacist went along. He took the spoon, put a tiny bit of the liquid on it, put it on his tongue and swished it around. Then, with a stomach-churning look on his face, he spat it out on the floor and began coughing. When he was finally finished, I looked him right in the eye and asked, “Now, does that taste sweet to you?” The pharmacist, shaking his head back and forth with a venomous look in his eyes yelled, “ABSOLUTELY NOT!” I said, “Oh, thank God! That’s a real relief! My doctor told me to have a pharmacist test my urine for sugar.”
