A Cold Wind Comes—Monday, October 9, 2017

The air is cold today!!!

Snow and rain and wind…insane wind.

The air is dim and miserable.  Snow frosts the air and chills the bones; roars along with the wind spitting through the air


The searching bitter wind has put a stop for all the farmers harvesting.  Winter has come.

I am most grateful that our pinto beans are harvested.  Most grateful.

Fixing Fence—Sunday, October 9, 2016

fixing-fence-001It’s that time of year.

That time of the year, when hunters feel like your land is their land.  Who cares if there is a fence of two in the way.  Just clip the strands and head on into the wilderness called ‘somebody else’s farm’.  Grrr.

Terry and I fixed fence Saturday and reposted the NO Trespassing Signs.

Will it work?  Who knows.  My Dad always said:  “Locks and gates only keep out the honest person”.


Sure makes me shake my head in puzzlement, at the audacity, of some people.
