Fall is officially here. It's 29 degrees as I write this, the tress are full of color and skunks and fox's are digging holes all around us.We had a mess in our yard this fall ,the grubs killed big ,and I mean BIG patches of our yard grass, then the skunks root the dead grass to get at the grubs. We reseeded a lot of the yard, after spreading insecticide and watering it in. the new grass is looking better. Next year we will have to spray in the summer. We went to our annual meeting for Thrivent and Elks dinner dance Friday and Sat. nights, could have been hard on one's diet, only gained 1 lbs. I will lose it back next week. The Lord has been so good to me, see you in church, don't be an hour early. Skeeter

    I always enjoy reading your bogs each week but what am I doing wrong that My bog I write appears on you spark page?
I heard you were out dancing last night & ask my neighbor if she ever stays home? She does not stay home & realy enjoys herself. She loves people!
Your are doing great with your weight.
We ate at Sandy's last eve after church & I had veg soup which was so SALTY! So this morning after we got home from our breakfast with family at Sunset I made vegetable soup for our lunch & turned out good so gave a bowl to Florence & she liked it too. Have a good week.

    Hi Skeeter! Wow!! 29 degrees is what I would call winter here in Oklahoma!
I love fall, our trees are just starting to get some color, but I think we will have a very colorful fall this year. We live in the country and have a problem with skunks too, and so do our dogs! Yuck! nothing like a house dog getting sprayed by a skunk!!
You are doing so good at maintaining your weight, don't worry about 1 little old pound, you will lose it in no time.
The Lord has been good to me and my family too, may the Lord continue to bless you and yours. Earlene...

Where has the month gone? I'm sure glad time still flies. Hope the winter goes as fast. Finished harvest now but have some tillage to do. Corn yields were the best ever and whether almost perfect. The Lord has been good to us. The down side to all this is our input cost are skyrocketing up. Oh well ,the life of a farmer, never satisfied. Hope to see you in church. have a good week. I almost forgot, I still maintained this week. Thank you Chris. Skeeter

One more farm done yesterday, we are getting close to being done. We went to Galesburg , 112 miles,Tues. to babysit our two GK, it rained , had not been there for two weeks because of harvest. Yields still great, the Lord has really blessed us this year. Took off yesterday morning to get our flu shots, you know your old when they highly recommend people my age to receive them. And yes I'm still maintaining, Life is great. Let's all go to church today. Skeeter

Had a good week of harvest, we did get more fall like tempt. We finished one farm last night, thats a sign we are ahgettin there, [farmer term]. We are getting lazy and older, I only emptied out my bin once refiled again, the rest my wife runs the grain cart direct from combine and loads on trucks to go direct to elevator. One cart holds 900 bu. plus so is a load. Corn is so dry that it wouldn't pay for me to dry in my bin. We were blessed this summer with perfect growing season. Another hard work week I guess I maintained a little too well. Skeeter

As I type this blog at 7AM the temp. is at 65. what a fall. Beans went well at just under 60 bu. corn so far is harder to calculate, I don't have one of those fancy and expensive field tractors that tell you the yield as you go through the field. Beans went straight to the elevator so know the yield. Did have a rain last Sun. night, it sure was welcome, too many field fires, I had to help my neighbor out with one, I felt very useless with a 3 gal. water jug and just my big feet a stomping the smoldering bean fines out. I sure was glad to see the fire truck come for the second time. The wind was so strong I thought I had it out and it would start from a spark another 5 feet away. We are supposed to get rain tomorrow and it will be welcome again. Just so it doesn't last all week. This dry corn is abegging to be harvested. Had to eat some high calorie food this week to keep my weight up, too much exercise. Managed to get back up to 184, don't you just hate me? Time to get ready for church. Skeeter
