Default Re: What are you doing today?

I've been doing what I have a lot this spring planting season. Waiting....

Corn is done, but not a single soybean in the ground yet.

So I wait patentially for this to change. Only 49% of the nations corn is planted. A new record for this date since they have been keeping records. And, more rain is in the forecasts for this week, running into next week. Not good.

Regards, Kirk

Well, storm is over. Tornado touched down some 10 miles southeast of us. Augusta & Chesterfield. We got wind and hail for a while but it's too dark and wet to see if we received any damage.

Busy day/week of packing and unpacking. More on that in my thread about house prices being crazy.

Good luck with your crops.

The whole of the midwest seems to be soaked. I walked thought the back field in knee high rubber boots and found standing water and nothing but mud. I feel bad for the real farmers, that field, and all the fields near us, are simply waterlogged and can't be planted in the near future. And we got more rain last night. With more forecast all week.

Yes, the rain.
All week into the weekend.
The way it looks we won't waste our time going to Indy.
My foot feels better, so I'll go to work tonight as scheduled.

I had an inch and a half of rain over night, with more on the way for the next 5 or so days.

This is an epic event, one farmers will talk about for years to come. I have never seen a crop so difficult to put in the ground.

Those hedge funds who were record short all classes of grains in the market are now getting a lesson on loosing money when they buy back those short positions. I have to revel in this, as it is usually the other way around, as they usually take money away from farmers.

Once again sitting in the storm shelter section of our home as a Tornado warning is again in effect. It's 1:36 AM

Weather station says it is in Wentzville MO. Where my company is, and so is our brand new Park model RV. That is west of us about 13 miles.

I'm beat. We've been running like crazy since March. It's all catching up with me. I had planned on loading up the old garage stuff in the trailer and bringing it over to the new place. Instead, I went to pick up new wiper blades for the truck and headed to the new house. I went shopping with my father in law for misc Reno stuff we needed for around the place. My new lift chair came in today and was delivered. It has heat and massage.

Canadian eh!!!

It's only 230. I'm already on my second load to the new house. Half the garage is emptied and moved over now. Tomorrow is the big furniture move and our first official day living in the new place.

Waiting for the severe weather (or so they say).
It's humid as hell outside, so I cut my walking short this morning.
Talked to my kids and Grandbugs.
All is well there.
Maddie is really coming along with the Asperger's therapy classes.
She actually can focus now on an activity and looks you in the eye while you're speaking.

Guess I'll watch the 500 on the lap top through an app tomorrow.
Lots of new drivers, I only recognize a few names.
Sure isn't like it used to be.
Is anything?

Oh, noted Durwood down in the Birthday names.
He would have been 64.
Sure do miss talking to him and regret not meeting him for dinner like we had planned that time.
He was down to earth and sweet.

I'm exhausted. Wide awake at 4:30am. Couldn't sleep. By 7am I was packing up a few things then headed out to pick up the uhaul.

Back home by 815am and started loading up small stuff until the work party arrived. Thankfully everyone showed up. We had 5 extra guys, all friends plus my oldest son. By 1130 most of the house was empty.

We headed out to the new house where I had arranged a meat and cheese platter with fresh buns and veggies to feed them. By 230 we had the truck unloaded and everything in their respective rooms. Afterwards I returned the uhaul and went back to the old house to empty the refrigerator and grab a couple of smaller things to bring over. As we bought a lot of new furniture for the house, the only thing that we brought to the new house was the kids bedroom sets and the old living room furniture for downstairs.

Phewf. I'm beat. I did manage to unpack 3 boxes. Only 157 to go. Now I'm enjoying a cold beer and a heated massage on my new lift chair.

Canadian eh!!!

We were going to the boat today. The weather report said storms. So we stayed home. I cleaned up the property at dad's old house. the bank owns it now but no one mows the lawn. I've been doing the front yard but the back was waist high grass and weeds.

It's about 1/2acreofwhatused to be lawn, patio and gardens. What a mess.
The brick patio is 1,200 square feet and was about two inches deep in dead leaves.

Glad it is done but somebody needs to buy and flip that house.

Melen, Nelson the puppy and the Lovely Mrs_Bob all departed for California about 6:15am this morning. They are driving. Day one goal was to get to North Platt, Nebraska. They arrived about 6pm.

I was tasked to take Dasha to the post office with a carload of boxes to ship off to her new home in Boston. We also drove up to Chicago to say goodbye to her friends at the Redstar Fencing Club. Its the top competitive club in Chicagoland and my friend is the Saber coach at the club. He comes down and gives her lessons at my local club. I take her up there for serious fencing practice as often as practical. We also stopped at the Apple store, Ghirardelli Chocolates for some ice cream, and visited the Garden of the Phoenix, which was one of her bucket list places to visit in the city before moving on to Boston.

I probably won't see Dasha again until Wednesday at the next fencing practice. And then Saturday I put her on an airplane to send her off to Boston.

The lovely Mrs_Bob won't get back home for almost 2 weeks

Heading to the countryside in Holgate soon.
Homer and Sophie still plan to have the cookout.
Looks like it may rain, so..
Bet they end up doing it in the garage.
I'll try to get some pictures.
