Howdy friends and neighbors.  First, I want to apologize for my last few articles.  Although I wrote my opinion, I was just making fun of the same old junk that you can get from any of the mainstream media.  I guess my frustration with the so-called leadership of this nation has worn me down and it showed in what I was writing.  When I started this writing this weekly column, my goal was to inform and promote the business of agriculture and the rural way of life through an entertaining article.  Well, lately I have sunk to a level that I am not sure I am proud of.  However, I am proud of saying that my Mom could have handled the VP job but I’m glad she just taught teenagers some basic life skills instead.  (more…)

Howdy friends and neighbors.  Watch out for grain drills, seed carts, old wheat trucks, tractors, plows, sprayers, fertilizer spreaders, lunch (or dinner) boxes, fuel trailers, and farm wives trying to figure out where “the field over yonder, down from the one we just got done with,” is so they can deliver any or all the above mentioned items!  In other words wheat sowing time is here.  You’ve just got to love this time of year.  Cool mornings and nights, warm to hot days, and things are still green but have that look of needing to hibernate.  The season is changing.

VP

Howdy friends and neighbors.  I’m so sorry about my absence the last two weeks.   I didn’t have much good to say so I just didn’t say it.

 

Governor Sarah Palin, what else do I need to write this week??!!!  I love this Bible thumping, gun carrying, moose gutting, caribou hunting, snowmobile riding, ice fishing, lipstick-wearing bulldog, hockey mom beauty queen from the great state of Alaska!!!!!!! I am now excited about “Decision ‘08.”  Before Palin, there just wasn’t anyone out there that got my motor running in this upcoming election.  Well, not to put down the great community organizer, Zeus-Obama, but he is about as empty as the social-insecurity checking account.  Oh, but he did pick a running mate form the all-so-unpopular US Senate.  I think the US Senate is up about half the approval rating of Bush.  Add them together and the score still wouldn’t get you a “D.”  But until McCain announced his running mate, we were going to get more of the same old crappy DC Senate crowd.
