It’s snowing again. We won’t be doing corn until the year 2016. What a mighty unusual year this has been. We are NOT the only farmers in our area having this problem, everyone is having the same problem. There are a few loads of high moisture corn going to the elevator, but only if the elevator calls and asks if you can bring some down.
We have two of the grandchildren for the week. Our oldest granddaughter is staying with her BFF for a couple of days, she will be with us this afternoon. Our youngest granddaughter has been enjoying Aunt Shannon and Romeo. Although, rides don’t happen often they do occur frequently.
We had a BFF of our youngest granddaughter come spend the afternoon with us — we went down to feed Romeo carrots, pet all six dogs, and the two cats…pick up and love on at least 4 of the eight chickens — Aunt Shannon asked if they would like to go for a ride on Romeo.
So from down at Romeo’s house, clear around a couple of the corn fields, and down the lane to our house they got to ride. Two very excited little girls. Shannon left them off at our house and trotted back home. The highlight of the whole afternoon, I can assure you.
This afternoon our daughter in Craig and our grandson should arrive. For the New Year we will have all our grandchildren—a neat way to start out the year.
All this snow would be a really nice thing, if the corn was just out. But, it is what it is, and there is nothing we can do about it.
