Today is the first day of the rest of my life?

My daughter hates it when I say that. She also hates it when I say, "remember, if you let yourself down you let your country down." I wonder if instead of "yourself" our dear leader meant, "Yusuf" and this is a veiled reference to Cat Stevens. And he wants us all to become failed artists from the 1960's who are on the "no-fly" list. Show us your birth certificate!
Actually, he has no birth certificate because he is an alien pod person and the whole story of a midwestern white hippie chick with low morals mating with a Islamic Kenyan is just a cover story... Hmm, curiouser and curiouser. Hmm, how do you spell curiouser?
But, I digress.
I don't want to work today.
We have to haul seven loads of hay that may never sell. It is painful. I need to start baling grass straw. We need to combine. It is going to be 90 degrees. The a/c doesn't work on the stacker and may fail on the combine.
I know 90 is nothing to you midwestern folks but I'm not you and this is my bully pulpit to complain all I want...


  1. "If trouble don't kill me, I'll live til I die."

    Floating lyrics; various fiddlers/banjo players/songsters since way before Mr. Edison.

    Theme song of this year's Strumpet office party?

  2. Like they sang on Hee-Haw, "If it weren't fer bad luck, I'd have no luck at all..."

  3. Budde, 90 degrees may be nothing for the midwest but its way too hot for me. We have seen 80 the past couple of days and while I sure appreciate it for drying hay swaths, the only time its comfortable is riding in the air conditioned cab or out on the open trike checking crops.
