The Honest Scrap Award

As for passing it on, I don't actually have that many followers...
I would propose the following folks
1. Georges' Grouse He doesn't have a lot of posts but they are interesting and he is a good writer.
2. Ed Winkle at HyMark Hi Spots: Ed Writes interesting stuff about farming and updates almost everyday.

Now I'm going to work on the list of honest things about myself and then I have to go plant. I had a horrible dream about an employee getting his finger cut off which a tubing cutter. I am traumatized.
Honest things about me.

1. My name is not Budd E. Shepherd. That was my dog's name. I have always posted on the internet with my dogs identity. He never seemed to mind. He was a really good dog.

2. I like to think I drive a Studebaker. But it has a flat tire and has not run in three months. The above photo is from a few years ago. Sadie and Budd E. Shepherd in the Studebaker. Once i left Sadie in the Studebaker when I ran into the local bank. A lady admonished me that it was not good to leave a child alone in a car. I suggested that she try to get Sadie out of that car. Buddy stuck his head up at just that moment and she stomped off. Just the same, I didn't leave her alone in the car but that one time and a middle aged grumpy lady found me. Just my luck.

3. I suffer from "Night Terrors" that is why I am writing at 4 a.m. See above description of dream where employee lost finger. The scary part of the dream was trying to find the finger. The strange part of the dream was that it was at night in the shop and dad was still in his office. He asked where we were going and I said the emergency room and he said have a nice time...

Now, I am going to go out and plant. I am planting Camelina for my neighbor. Thirty acres of the stuff. I kind of suspect it is once of those dream crops that will never work. We planted 10 acres. I also have to plant 30 acres of annual rye grass for him today and I have Sadie as there is no school. She is still sleeping. Hmmmm.


  1. Have a great day! Your dog looks like he was one of the greats!
