Re: Things I Love (2)


Hospital I'm staying at is 100 miles from home. Cindy needed to get home to get a few things for my release.

We'd had about 5 inches of new snow, but big problem is wind pushing it off the lake into the driveway.

Called ex competitors son who owns snow/lawn care biz to see if he could plow it for Cindy.

I'll take care of it, he hangs up. Cindy called and said what a beautiful job he'd done.

Called him back up told him I'd like to catch up with him Friday and slip him some cash.

He said, your money is no good old man, and hangs up on me again.

Trust me, I'll even the score on this one.

Re: Things I Love (2)


I am getting 3 months free to get the space ready (new lights, paint walls, clean, wiring, move all my crap) plus they left me a forklift to use in the building while I move.


First picture is main room where I will set up the production stuff (7200 sqft)

Second picture is looking through 5000sqft area that will probably be used for assembly and to set up my antique equipment.

Third picture is the large old back room that I will use for storage an equipment repair and probably a finishing area, plus a small machine shop area.

Last is my wife helping last weekend get the space cleaned up.

Re: Things I Love (2)


Being at the fair for my niece and nephews steer show. They came in first and third! This is a 9 month long commitment that is very tedious and pretty damn hard. My nephew showed amazing. My niece didn't do as well in showmanship but she had one beautiful steer.

Agriculture is really one of the last truly family/community based things that people do. I am perfectly comfortable letting my 5 and 7 year old run around with their friends in the barns because everyone watches out for everyone else. Everyone knows each other and at the end of the day, the community is all there to support each other.

Really cool to see at the auction today that the most well off pay more for sub standard cows to those with less. Ag community truly is something to be proud of. Gives one hope to see all those youngsters out there and putting in the work to do something so important.

Start out with the pledge of allegiance, national anthem and prayer... Really brings one back to what this country can be and is outside of the big cities.

FFA too. My family has been into the cattle side of things for a while. My parents grew up on farms in Ohio, got out of it, then we (my sister and I) got back into it. I don't have a whole lot to do with the livestock other than give them money to invest and see where the cows are on occasion. My brother in law has been a cattleman for a living since he was 16. Day worker when he was 16 and 17 as often as he could, then as soon as he turned 18 he moved out to the ranch he was working on and hasn't looked back, that was close to 30 years ago.

I support the cattleman's association and the cows that I go in with my family on are a part of my retirement plan because I know nothing about the stock market and don't care to learn.

Grew up around that world and it's changing here big time but it's nice to see that bubble with the people who grew up like I did, when I did. Too many people coming in have scattered a lot of us around the state. Just really good to see because everyone still comes back to the fair to show or be at the show. I got to hangout with my buddy and his kids that I haven't seen since Thanksgiving last night. Really good to catch up.

Saw one guy I haven't seen since I was 19. Everyone is good hearted people and everyone looks out for everyone else. My boy is old enough to show next year and has some big competition with his cousins in steers. Being as my sister and brother in law really know they're **** and have been doing the shows with their boy for the past 5 years, my boy looked at me and said... "I think we should start with a pig to get used to it"

Pigs here are kinda the minor leagues for the steer competitions. We bought some beautiful Brahma hens and a rooster for my daughter to show their babies next year (can show the chickens at a much younger age). It's fun to see. It was the first year my kids were all really into it, normally they're kinda like, "meh, can we get cotton candy now" but now they wanted to watch the auction and go look at breeder chickens and talk to the big calf breeders.

Just good wholesome family times. We're being invaded by big cities now and that's starting to change. Lots of folks are talking about moving out of the county and moving even further away, plenty are talking out of state. It's sad to see our agriculture getting killed off for stupid neighborhoods but waddya gonna do?

Still, love to watch agriculture community.
