In my area, I have been reading a lot about the "hicks" that make up the GOP.  Some of our new active members here in this forum are of the same mindset.  I don't think any of them have ever been out with the "hicks."

This past weekend was one of those weekends where the wife and I put up hay.  I hate it since I know I'm going to hurt for some time afterwards.  As some of you might recall, three years ago now, I fell off the top of the hay stack and have had a hard time recovering.  In fact, I destroyed my right hip.  Anyway, the wife and I are both pushing 60 and it is getting harder and harder for us to put up this hay.  As we were loading our trailer, the lady who sells us the hay was getting worried that her hired high school boy was not going to show up.  She had a load of hay to deliver to an older lady who still had horses but was widowed.  We were paying when she said that he received a text that he was not showing up.  This lady's husband was out getting his hay in the field raked and ready for baling in the afternoon.  So, the wife told her we'd help her do it.  With 3 of us, it couldn't take that long.  The lady was shocked.  She said that she thought that those days were over.  Nope.  

I will admit that I was dead dog tired.  I will admit that when my wife said it, I thought she was crazy.  Still, I know what my dad would have done.  We might be hicks but we also grew up with those values that once represented America.

You need to invest on a square bale loader system. The neighbor had one at her place, and it was awesome. They do some round bales for their own personal cattle use, but they square bale Tifton 185 for horses. I watched them bail a 150 acre pasture, only stopping to transport and stack in the barn. It was the burger robotics of McDonald's on steroids. The High school Boys regrettably are out of a job on her place (she hires a few illegals). Granted, this is a larger operation, but the seal has been broken..

The guy who owns the place we get our hay has one.  In fact, he has a loader for the wagon in the field and he has made a device that takes the bales off the wagon 12 at a time and he stacks them in the barn so fast.  So, loading the wagon to take the bales to the lady was not a problem.  The problem is going to a place that does not have one.  We don't have one.  So, we have to do bale by bale.  The good thing is we have a few hundred up for the year and will only need 50 more this year.  We could actually make it without getting that extra but in times of plenty one needs to store some up.

Our deer lease owner stopped square baling. He had 2 year old hay, and at 2 years the protein goes south, and it is only filler food to stop cattle from freezing up in a long sustained hard freeze. We are not in the hard freeze zone, so Round tubs of minerals, and ground rice hulls or cottonseed in an emergency perform the same task at a lessor cost. I cannot believe how well the cattle do off the available browse in Central Texas. The minerals are outstanding, and even overgrazed land produces fat cattle. You would think that they would be starving, but they are butterball fat even in drought years, despite their whole heads being covered with prickly pear and pencil cactus thorns, Tough cows, and good producers.

Fox's Bret Baier's show is ending by showing pictures and profiles of the Marines killed in the plane crash.  Man, that will break your heart.  We have so much to be thankful for.  However, we should never forget that a huge price has been paid and continues to be paid for by those who protect us.  May all of the Rest in Peace!

Yes, I appreciated them showing a profile of each one individually. I found it interesting about half the casualties were from a Marine Raider unit.

ABC's Sunday morning program, This Week. still runs an In Memoriam segment for service members killed in the Mideast. I'm glad when there are none to report. Otherwise, I pause it to honor them by considering all the info shown - name, age, home town, service branch and rank.

A lot of experience died in that helicopter, I didn't see any enlisted below the rank of E-5, also a few officers I believe a captain and a major. These were some experienced personnel, probably career servicemen. Volunteers are a special breed, they're there for us. I love them everyone

I am about to sound real cheap and stupid.  

Recently, we had a death in the family.  We gave a substantial donation to this person's charity in his name.  We give to this charity anyway and when I was forced to have to give up most of our charity donations, this was the one charity I told the wife that we had to give to.  In short, it helps kids.  Long ago, one of my uncles had a daughter that was born with a tumor on her neck.  Her whole neck.  She was terminally ill from the start.  It was horrible but this place was there for her.  My uncle had just lost his other daughter in a car wreck. He was devastated.  We received a statement today telling us that our donation does not qualify us for a certain "club" and then told us what we would have to do to be in that "club" per their brochure.  It list the names of families in our area in that club.  We already give more than enough to be in that club so I though what the heck.  I know this is a charity and I should not be concerned.  I don't even care to be in the club.  It is the slight that suggest that we have to give more to get in to something we already give more than enough to be in.  (Way more!)  Still, it has hit me in the wrong way.  

I know that tomorrow, I'll let it go.  I can't tonight.  

I know this is cheap of me and low class.  Thanks for letting me vent some.

Update on my daughter:

I know I've mentioned all of the problems that we had with her getting her degree.  It came down to some person at her university using the wrong name for her.  So, she missed out on most teaching opportunities last year as this was not figured out until just before school started.  So, this year, BB wanted to come back home to teach.  Here is some of that story:

BB worked as a reading paraprofessional in the Orchard Farm School District in Missouri this past year. She had a blast. However, they only hired a couple of teachers and BB was one of the finalist for each position. She was beaten out each time by a teacher with a Master's Degree. It broke her heart. Most of the other quality school districts in the St. Louis side of the river want teachers with either a Master's or with 5 years of experience. Many state so in their Applitrack postings. Still, BB had three other final interviews. She came up empty each time. 

In April, she started the process of getting her Illinois Teaching Certificate. I can bet if you follow this that you know where I am going. YUP, UMSL struck again. God Bless a young lady who worked with me today to get BB an Illinois Certificate. BB got the dates all of the various information was sent to Illinois and this Saint worked with me today to get all of those documents gathered and then "fixed" everything. It took a few hours. Not only did this lady do this, she told me that there were items she had to certify and that she would send a deficiency notice to BB's ISBE Account to note the progress. I told this lady that I actually have been telling my wife that I am going to have a heart attack over all of this. This lady must have processed all of the information and then, called BB to tell her that she not only now has an Illinois Teaching Certificate, she actually told BB that she is over qualified for some positions. I am so happy. 

Someone is going to get an outstanding teacher someday.  I have won a lot of teaching awards.  IMO, BB will be twice the teacher I am.

This precedent will have a far reaching affect. How long will it be before a court decides a child shouldn't be raised in a christian environment?

At age 17, the "child" is considered a consenting adult in many states. In the next year, while the case is being adjudicated, and appealed, the "child" will become 18, and an adult. Why waste taxpayer resources on this now? Why didn't the state place the "child" in a juvenile detention facility until adulthood if they felt the "child" was such a danger to herself?

Maybe she should have gotten on Dr. Phil like the mom with the "Cash me ouside" kid. Then she would be famous and getting paid instead of being railroaded by the leftists in government.

It's been a great day for pictures and "signs" of the times. Here is one that could become iconic.

I'm sure the families of Philando Castile and Justine Damond don't think it's funny, but this perfectly punks law enforcement in Minnesota.

Ever notice I post a lot about food and local restaurants?  Well, here is another one.  

At one family restaurant, they had a buffet on certain days for years.  Maybe as long as 30 years.  Anyway, they had to stop because they were losing money.  They tried to change how they did things and almost closed.  So, they brought back the buffet.  We ate there tonight.  We are having storms and so, not many are out.  Naturally, there is a family of a million in front of us as we are seated.  One or two get the buffet.  I know you know where I am going with this.

The guy in front of me gets 4 chicken breast.  He had spaghetti and meatballs and pulled pork on his plate as well.  We watch him sit down and then, he goes back for more chicken breast.  He took every chicken breast from the buffet.  There are signs in numerous places that detail that they have brought the buffet back but are depending upon patrons to be honest and pay for what they get and for patrons to not waste the food.  

I couldn't help myself and went up and told him that he was not taking all of those breast and that others actually paid for the buffet and expect for the food to be there.  Long story short, they got thrown out of the restaurant.  They had 8 chicken breast wrapped up in a purse.  Just another sign of the times.

Another glimpse of your despicable mind as you get a little chubbie in your onesie as you think you have "punked" law enforcement. Did you have a full orgasm when the Dallas officers were shot

Good for you coach, I would have done that if I had a chance. Guaranteed that guy voted Democrat who was stealing that food

KIR, we know the owner and I posted here once that a lady gave a ride to a neighbor who didn't have a job and this place hired the neighbor at the request of the much older neighbor who used to make pies for this place.  In short, the owner is a very good person.  I had to speak up and they did call law enforcement.  I don't understand how someone could do this given the signs and everyone in our small communities know that the buffet went away for a few months due to people doing this.  Heck, the buffet cost between $12 and $13.  It isn't that expensive.

The wife counted the bales of hay we have put up this year and found out that we were about 50 bale short of where we usually are.  So, the wife and I drive up to the place we buy our hay and were told that the hay was pretty much all accounted for.  It was a little disappointing since this hay is so good and at $4 a bale, we might not ever see that price again.  We talked for a little bit and jumped in the truck and headed home.  Before we were home, we had a phone call and were told that they were going to set back 50 bale for us since we are loyal customers and always willing to help.  As I mentioned a long time ago in this thread, we helped these people with delivering hay when their hired worker didn't show.  It is so good to know that they appreciated our help and got us the hay we needed.  

Side note, the wife and I were talking and this might be the last time we put hay up.  We need 30 more bale and will get that from the last cutting and then, we might be done doing hay.  I have a hard time climbing and throwing now and the wife's arm begins to hurt a lot if she has to do that job.  We would like to hire some of the work out but there are reasons we can't.  We are down to two horses and maybe it will be cheaper in the long run to pay for the care.  I'd hate to do that.  Getting older is not a lot of fun sometimes but it beats the alternative.

I remember the story of you helping them deliver the hay and saved their day. As I was reading I wondered if it was the same people, they should return the favor. Sell you the hay, deliver it and stack it for you.

KIR we were just glad to get the hay.  These people had to call someone and tell them that they would be getting 50 bale less than what they had ordered.  However, it was the right thing to do and so, we appreciate it.  They didn't have to do it.  For me, we know we are so lucky to be where we are.  People trying to do right by others and being good neighbors.  I know that there are parts of this country where that doesn't happen anymore.
