Farm Sale Purchase—-Wednesday, January 4, 2017

The season for farm sales has started.  Sometimes this is not a good thing…farmer’s losing their farm, because of foreclosure, but other times it’s due to a farmer and his wife selling out and moving.

Yesterday’s farm sale was just that…the farmer and his wife were selling out to move to California — where all their kids live now.  No one in the family wanted to move back and take over the farm, so the parents were going to move out to the Land of Milk and Honey and live with them.

The day was a good day for a sale….bright and sunny with intermittent clouds.

It was also a good day to haul the trash to county dump.

Once in awhile there was a sharp, piercing little wind. Not bad, but enough to chill you if you didn’t wear proper clothes.  (I had on socks and close-toed shoes 🙂 )

Late in the afternoon Terry came home with his new treasure

(It looks like we are farming one more year. 🙂 🙂 )
