Anticipating Normalcy

Fall harvest has come to a screeching halt for my family. We have had some minor issues that have slowed us down, but those issues are always expected during the marathon known as fall harvest. We began back in August picking corn. Since then, we have transitioned to popcorn followed by soybeans followed by sorghum with wheat sowing sprinkled into the mix starting in late September.


One hundred years ago, women in the United States won the right to vote. Until that point, the country truly was ruled by men, and until 1870, black men were not included.

Pondering Endings

Fall is winding down on our farm. Brown grass is hidden beneath piles of colorful leaves that have fallen. Wheat drilled last month has popped up providing a spiky looking cover to fields for the winter. Corn and soybeans have been harvested and shipped off to the elevator. By the time you read this, we may even have had a dusting of snow.

Have you ever noticed how things in general are grouped in three’s? Like.... Three strikes and you’re out. Third time’s a charm. Ready, set, go. Then there is three on a match, three squares a day, the three R’s, odd as a three-dollar bill and three bricks shy of a load.

What’s the use?

Lincoln County – or rather a portion of the residents of Lincoln County – have been engaging in a debate on-line for much too long. One Facebook page, created with good intentions, is now a place where people not only debate local issues, but argue, and attempt to convince their opponents they are the only ones “in the know.”
