Saturday, May 19


I very much needed a break from work (of the office sort) so I took Friday off this last week. That gave me a whole day to myself to immerse my mind in in everything Geek Acres. I ended up working on my tan while riding the mower, edging and otherwise just cleaning up some unsightly messes. I felt much better after seeing some semblance of order around the farm. [after I posted this I noticed, I wrote about the same subject a year ago.]

Today two of my old high school buddies made it out to the farm today. It's been a while since I had seen Luke or Sean, and I was glad to get a chance to catch up with them. It's funny how your best friends can easily slip back into the role despite how time has caused us to go our seperate ways.

Coy Dan baled the winter wheat off our front field today. It yielded 18 round bales. Not too bad really, considering the frost that killed nearly everything. He's in his summer mode of constantly being in a mad dash. I offered to help run a tractor, I'm sure he'll call on me if he needs the help. He's recently spotted "army worms" destorying fields. He's been forced to spray for them or in some cases cut the fields in hopes of salvaging what he can.

Eighteen round bales sounds like a good harvest considering the late freeze earlier this year.

Be careful out there in the sun while you are mowing, and use plenty of sunscreen. I suppose Jennifer must tell you the same thing, but I thought I'd throw it in anyway.

You take a day off of work and then you work.

I haven't seen my high school chums in 20 years. I don't think we could reconnect.
