This one ain’t easy. Sitting down my specks fell apart. What’s worse, I need’s to wear them to fix them.
Regardless, blowing the print up enough (18point type) to make it readable wallpaper I’m writing this. Thankfully tomorrow’s post has been written earlier this week. So that’s almost all set to go tomorrow containing the answers to some of the question asked of the boards earlier this past week.

Rain, rain, rain most the day. So much so I put feed grinding off gambling on a break in the afternoon’s weather. Meantime, I opted to visit a loco seamstress about fixing my blown-out barnyard tux. I call her loco for accepting the challenge. $20.00, and I think that’s alright for a three seasoned suit that normally moves soooo easy with me in it It‘ll be ready in a week. From there, I drove one to make arrangements for a propane pig. Shucks, there were out of them and only order more to fill out orders for bigger tanks. So meanwhile I got the old hundred pounder filled once more. It’ll last until about Easter time or shortly there after.
Thinking this was going to be a quick trip, wrong-o! I had idiotically asked the gatherer if she wanted to ride along. Sure enough, thinking I was heading home, she decides she’s in a gathering mood. Thankfully, gathering a gallon of milk went well with a single stop for her prescription medication pickup I knew nothing about until heading home. All the time, shortly after getting on the road the clouds had broke and some Sun was trying to shine. ALL the time we were ON THE ROAD.

Home, depositing my Mrs. within her realm I set about to get the feed grinding done, more storm clouds building in the West. Two supplements loaded I returned home. Used the WD45 for pre-mud positioning the receiving feed wagon. Then it was getting the grinder mixer out and set. I set the grain into motion. Re-parked the ground grain wagon under the delivery spout and packed the pickup truck’s loaded supplements down to the grinding site. Half way through the operation here came the rain again I had wanted to avoid. By the time all was done, I had bribed the breed heifers so I could pass through their yard unmolested to spot the loaded wagon in front of the barn from where the goods would be dispensed with the oldest, longest running Ollie on the farm. Before I was done filling and feeding it was well after dark finishing my chores in a refreshing down pouring drizzle. I had manage to get a wet a$$ twice in the same day in the same tux. Boy, will I be glad when I get my spare barnyard suit back.

So, here it is folks. Just another day filled with wonders down on the farm. And, as I’m not seeing well, this is my contribution for the evening, calling it quits to go watch the radio.
See you all tomorrow, for sure! G-nite!!!!

And Dear Lord, please bless and keep Fernan. Cause he's one of the last old time farm treasures. 'sides that he is as entertaining as he is hardworking. So, please look out for him this winter as he sludges around in the mud and rain.
