What I've Been Up To This Week ...

 I haven't had a whole lot of time to blog lately because well frankly I haven't been home much. For the past couple days, this has been my view ...
Cow butts!
Jealous aren't you?

I took my show girl Stella to what's called the State Indiana Holstein and Jersey show.

Came home with a blue ribbon so I should be pleased, right? Except for the fact that she was the one only in her class. Sigh ... I would've liked at least a little competition!

Besides the hot temps and Baby RayRay running around the barns like a wild woman wearing out her Momma and Grammy, it was pretty relaxing.

It's amazing how many smooth one or two (or three or ...) cold ones go down on a hot, steamy summer day.

Not my coozie by the way ... but it is pretty funny! And yes, that's a cow behind that beer, of course.
My wild one on the move at the show!

Earlier in the week I was sporting my My Man Mitch shirt (Ind. Gov. Mitch Daniels) and less than 24 hours later I found out he was named President of Purdue University. Just maybe I'm psychic and I didn't know it!! 

A few folks across the Corn Belt got a little rain this week, but in central Indiana where we farm we got nothing, not even a sprinkle.

It's disconcerting, but all we can do is pray about it. The crops need rain desperately, the hot summer sun is just brutal for anything to survive let alone grow! Any prayers for rain would be appreciated! :)



Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. We were blessed with 1.6 inches last Sat. but of course we need more again. It's getting critical all across the state, but I know I don't have to tell you that. Hope Mitch will be good for Purdue...... wasn't too thrilled with his view on public ed, but I guess time will tell. In these parts, it's getting pretty contentious with the whole number of people he appointed to the governing board electing him. I'm sure it will all blow down eventually.......
