Ohio Farmers Check It Out


Jack's Little Pumpkin Gourd

This was the pumpkin gourd that Mommy selected for Jack.
Grandma thought it was a good choice. It can fit Jack's little noggin.

Ohio farmers please check out these bales of straw. They are about 10 inches by 20 inches in size. Now look below at the price for one bale of straw.
Wow! $6.99 Per Little Bale.


My dad would have said that we are going to ship our straw to Virginia to sale and make an economic killing. We will have the little grandkids stack the semi full of little bales and we will head east on #70 to Virginia to sell to all those folks living in the suburbs. Why there's over a million folks in Fairfax County alone who would like a little bale of straw for fall decorating.

I wonder what kind of hay baler you would use to make these tiny bales of straw? Looks like it would be one about the size of riding lawn mower that the grandkids could drive. Anybody know anything about this?

Joann: I guess if you want to make real money you just make the bales small.I paid $6 for a full bale and thought that was high for straw.

Hmmmmmmm....Fishing Guy, maybe we should suggest that to the U.S. Bureau of Printing and Engraving. Make smaller dollar bills and we can make some real money to bail us out of this financial crisis.

Here's my thought for the day: spin doctors now are talking about a depression like 1929 coming but I just want to know if we are currently in a recession. They have been using the R word for over a year now. When will they admit that the economy has slowed down to a recession or are we just going to jump from the good time days to a depression?

He surely is a cutie. My older grandson is Jack, too....very special. Funny, John's dad was a hay farmer too, in Indiana.
