The Home Of The Brave!

Sunday, May 25, 2008

Finished drilling neighbors beans, sprayed all corn 1st. time and planted more sweetcorn and put out tomato plants this week and weight stayed the same. All this seems pale compared to the sacrifice our Brave Men and Women have and are doing for our Great Country's safety. Let us remember them daily in our prayers. See you in church? Skeeter

    Skeeter, Bless you for reminding us about our warriors in service to our country! I wish the politicians were as brave in holding our country above their lust for power!
I admire you for your farming skills. I have lived in the suberbs all my life and when I was in my 20s my hubby and I bought a piece of land to raise horses and grow our kids. we have a whole acre and a half!! not much to a farmer but a LOT to city folk. we are down to two horses now but have had as many as 5 at one time. LOVE having animals and gardening but in So. CAlifornia, there isn't much rain so gardening is a challenge!
Thank you for your blog, Jerri

Life is Great!

Sunday, May 18, 2008

Been a good week finished drilling my beans last night. The sun is shinning, even though it's cold. The bad news I lost a crown this week, will have to get a new one. Dr. said it would cost around $1000, I told him no big deal I'll just put the old one under my pillow and the money will be there.
More good news, after feeding at the trough last weekend actually lost 1 lbs. in the two weeks. You newbies, there's a lesson in that. You can overindulge on occasion's but get right back on the good saddle you learned on Sparks.
Life has been very good to me and I hope with you likewise.

    So you still believe in the tooth fairy??LOL
Yes, a person can overindulge but you have to learn it's only once in a great while. And don't make a habit of it. It's a bad habit that Spark help break--remember?

    Hi Skeeter, congrats on the loss (and the sunshine at last!). I've also found that the occasional blow-out isn't a bad thing (in fact I think it might even help if you've been on reduced calories for a long time - like a kick in the rear for your metabolism). Your last blog had me Googling the Studebaker family (I'm a geek), very interesting story. I'd heard of the cars of course, but I didn't know anything about the people. Poor Heinrich emoticon Have a great week, Skeeter - hope the sunshine lasts for you!

The Hot Pink Dress, Never Too Old To get Hit On!

Wednesday, May 14, 2008

Will try for the 3rd. time.
Finally have some time to write about our 1st/GS weekend wedding.It was just great, very beautiful, outdoors, Lord was smiling down on us weather wise, day before was cold and overcast, day afterwindy,cold and much rain. Bride was soo beautiful, glad to have her in our"strange" Warner family. For some of you who remember the Studebaker car and wagon maker it was held at what was his home. Completed in 1889 at a cost of $250.000, now that was real money back then. Quite a mansion, the reception was held indoors, I must mention how great the BM's looked, especially our GD ASHWARN22, she's some looker, don't know where she gets all the good looks, wait a minute, it must come from me always preaching to my Sons to marry up! You should see her Mom, our DILshe sure looked splendid as usual. Now that brings me to my GLBH, she wore that HOT PINK number that I might have mentioned in a previous blog; she's some looker too. A 25 year old Groomsman must have thought so too, the way he kept flirting with her. After he left my Son, father of the Groom, said Mom, do you realize he was hitting on you? She said no, he couldn't be doing that, I guess that happens when you just celebrate a birthday this past week. I can't reveal which one but it's a biggie! She is really something special and a keeper! Remember what I said about marrying up!
If you think I'm going to weigh after a weekend like that your crazy, my Mommy never raised no dummy!
What a great life and loving family, I have!
Have a great week!

    Sounds a lot like my cousin's wedding this weekend. Beautiful weather, just a bit windy, it was outside under a tent right in front of a lake. Outdoor weddings are great!

    Your blog is always a HOOT! I am so lucky to have you as my baby brother. I too am happy you had a great weekend & all went well. Also enjoyed our breakfast together this morning, we are so fortunate. I still do not know where your sense of humor came from had to be the Warner's! My oldest brother & I did not get any of it! Oh well we have our strong points also -so not complaining. I finally figured out how to add friends to my spark page. I am also a slow leaner! Anne emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Whenever I read your blog I can't help smiling, what a sweetie you are. Good advice to your Sons, lol. I don't know if you have the same expression in America but we call that "punching above your weight" here! I bet you're a hoot in real life, Skeeter. Your family must be as proud of you, as you are of them. Glad to hear you had a good time at the wedding, best wishes to the happy couple. emoticon

    Skeeter, Don't you just cherish those family times. They are the best. My oldest GD just had her 6th grade band and chorus concert Monday night. It was only 30 minutes long, but it was worth the 2 hour drive to get there. And, of course, we got back to their house in time to see the rest of the Cubs game. My oldest GD somehow is a White Sox fan. I don't understand that, but I love her anyway. Linda

Dancing with the Ole Duffers!

Saturday, May 03, 2008

Has been quite a week, light showers about every other day, makes the corn planting a real challenge. Did get one farm done, the smallest, 65 acres, but that's a start. It's my driest farm, have it tilled every 100 feet. Tried to start early this morning but more rain. Oh well the joy's of being a farmer.
We will be going to our 1st.GS wedding Fri. an Sat. in Ind. sure hope I have the corn planted if not , were gone.
We went to the Elks dance the other night. Sure nice to go places other than the nursing home where everyone is older than us. It tells me dancing is very good for your health, although I was sure tempted to go around and hand out my Spark cards. I didn't see anyone dancing with there air tanks but a couple were sucking on them when they sat down. Sure love that dancing, glad the GLBH makes me go.
Always have been a local history buff. Pumped ole people for information, someone has to keep "history alive". I looked around one day and realized I was the last "ole guy standing". Now it's up to me to keep the past history alive.
Old age is great, you can forget peoples name and they think nothing of it.
I just love this Sprinkle web site, Chris your awesome!
Don't forget to Bloom where Your planted!
Thank you Lord, see you in church tomorrow?
I almost forgot the big news, I stayed the same weight for the week.

    Well, you got more done than my family. My husband doesn't even have his planter put back together yet (no hurry since it's so wet right?), and my dad only got one field dug - not planted.

I'm supposed to go to my cousin's wedding in southern Iowa next weekend. It'll be interesting trying to get my husband to go if the weather's nice. I'm such a bad farm wife - I'm praying for rain!

    first off congrats on mantaining.
I am glad you went dancing. It sounds like fun. My husband and I belonged to an Elks lodge when we lived in Texas. I laugh because I remember a man with oxygen on always sitting at teh bar. He would occasional take the oxygen off so he could smoke a cig. We never really attended many functions there. We mostly joined because they had a great pool for our family to use and all there support of the boy scouts which we know our kids will be apart of some day.
On the farm front I dont know how you do it. I have spent teh last week trying to figure out the planting season in these parts and I am only going to do a small garden.

    It sure has been rough on farmers trying to get the corn planted! Your have done great glad to hear you have 65 acres planted. My dear MIL always comments on planting corn with horses & when the corn grows she is shocked to see the corn almost out to the road & SO CLOSE together. With the big equipment it takes no time to get the crops in I tell her & she loves to drive through the country & see the tractors & equipment working.
Enjoy your GS wedding I know you will & have a safe trip.
I heard you were at the Elks our neighbor whom is 86 & her man friend is 96 & they LOVE TO DANCE! She is going to have a knee replacement this year & sure hates to give up her many activities!
I am always so proud of you & how you are keeping SLIM! You are my inspiration & many others! Anne emoticon emoticon
