80 Loads

Market was called generally a little stronger today and quality was decent. We have been seeing quite a bit lower quality alfalfa and grass recently. Buyer interest was limited today, but we are seeing more interest from outside our immediate area, and coming in from drought areas.

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.

An old man is eating some breakfast at a diner when three bikers walked in. The first biker puts his cigarette out in the old man’s pancakes. The second biker spits out his tobacco in the old man’s coffee. The third biker takes the entire meal and shoves it off the table. The old man, with out saying a word, gets up, pays the waitress and walks out the door. The bikers laugh and sit at the old man’s table. “Not much of a man, was he?” Asked the one biker. “Not much of a driver either,” says the waitress. “That man just drove his eighteen-wheeler over three bikes.”

I sing at many funerals, and was recently asked by a funeral director to perform at a graveside service for a homeless man. He had no family or friends so the service was to be at a countryside cemetery. I was not familiar with the area and I got lost. I arrived an hour late and the funeral guy had evidently gone and the hearse was nowhere in sight. There were only diggers and crew left and they were eating lunch. I apologized for my late arrival. I went to the graveside and looked down. The vault lid was already in place. I didn’t know what else to do, so I began to play. The workers put down their lunches and began to gather around. I played out my heart and soul for this man with no family or friends. I sang like I’ve never sang before. As I sang and played “Amazing Grace,” the workers began to weep. They wept, I wept, we all wept together. When I finished, I packed up my keyboard and started for my car. Though my head hung low, my heart was full. As I opened the door to my car, I heard one of the workers say, “I’ve never seen nothing’ like that before and I’ve been putting in septic tanks for twenty years.” Apparently I’m still lost…

I sing at many funerals, and was recently asked by a funeral director to perform at a graveside service for a homeless man. He had no family or friends so the service was to be at a countryside cemetery. I was not familiar with the area and I got lost. I arrived an hour late and the funeral guy had evidently gone and the hearse was nowhere in sight. There were only diggers and crew left and they were eating lunch. I apologized for my late arrival. I went to the graveside and looked down. The vault lid was already in place. I didn’t know what else to do, so I began to play. The workers put down their lunches and began to gather around. I played out my heart and soul for this man with no family or friends. I sang like I’ve never sang before. As I sang and played “Amazing Grace,” the workers began to weep. They wept, I wept, we all wept together. When I finished, I packed up my keyboard and started for my car. Though my head hung low, my heart was full. As I opened the door to my car, I heard one of the workers say, “I’ve never seen nothing’ like that before and I’ve been putting in septic tanks for twenty years.” Apparently I’m still lost…

Morris and his wife Esther went to the state fair every year, and every year Morris would tell his wife, “Esther, I’d like to ride in the helicopter.” Esther always replied, “I know Morris, but that ride is fifty dollars and fifty bucks is fifty bucks.”  One year Esther and Morris went to the fair and Morris said, “Esther, I’m 85 years old. I am going to ride that helicopter before I never get the chance.” To that replied, “Morris, fifty bucks is fifty bucks.” The pilot overheard their conversation and said, “I’ll make you folks a deal. I will take both of you on a ride. If you can stay quiet the entire time, I will give you the ride for free. But if you say one word, its fifty dollars.” Morris and Esther agreed and they went up. The pilot did all sorts of tricks and fancy maneuvers, but not a word. He did his daredevil tricks over and over again, but not a peep. When they landed, the pilot turned to Morris and said, “By golly, I did everything I could to get you to yell out, but you didn’t. I’m impressed.” Morris replied, “Well, to tell you the truth,  I almost said something when Esther fell out, but ya know, fifty bucks is fifty bucks.”
