As the Dawn Cracked—Monday, January 11, 2016

As the sun started peaking over the Gunnison Mountain range…Terry and I were

Elevator-1Taking a load in —- what a nice way to start the week.

Elevator-2It’s still a little too high, but they said bring it in and go get another one.

Load1So we are!

(Wouldn’t it be nice if we could just bring in all three fields?  Work all this week and be done?  — Oh, well, we are NOT complaining, just very grateful.)

Your friends in a sorta, kinda, maybe, corn harvest.

  1. Good news! You have at last started the harvest. Now hope that the moisture level
    is down to satisfactory levels so as you will be well rewarded for all the years hard work.
    As one of our Prime Ministers here once said – not sure if in a philosophical aside
    to a question – “Life Wasn’t Meant to be Easy”.
    Well this PM was a farmer – wool and sheep so he probably was talking about the difficulties
    related to the rural communities – World wide – whose very existence depends on the weather.

    I noted yesterday Linda in your report that you have a “Murder of Crows” in the corn field.
    I love that expression as that is exactly what I’d do to my ‘Friends of Beethoven’ here,
    presently the squawking “group’ are “serenading the neighbourhood! One would think after
    3 hours of this they would get laryngitis!
    Cheers and hope this week all will be harvested.

  2. Finally, something! I saw a picture of cows from your last guest post and I burst out, “Oh no! The corn!” before I realized they weren’t in your field. *L* I don’t know that they’d do well to ship from California this year with the horrible drought conditions we’ve had, and the fact that agriculture was the first to be cut off. Hopefully that works in your favor.

  3. So glad to hear you actually got to get some of your corn out!! We’ll pray the weather holds, too. Loved your pictures yesterday, btw! I’m not on the computer very much lately, but hopefully that will change now that we are settling into some sort of routine here. Too many on the computers at the same time makes it tough to get on sometimes! But I’m catching up!
