As I was leaving I was right behind the combine and fuel truck entering the field to begin the soybean harvest. Talk about some dust y'all. I can't imagine how tough it was to do it in the old days prior to cabs. I'd say breathing was pretty hard for the operators of said machinery.
I'm having a hard time remembering to put the toilet paper up where Ellie can't reach it and she's shredding about a roll a day. It's her favorite thing. I have also discovered the secret to sleeping late is to let her out when she wakes up while I carry on snoozing. Live and learn.
I'm still hobbling but making it. The brace is a must. Reaves' birthday party is this weekend so I've gotta' get in shape for that. As it turns out my friend Patsye and I are distantly related through Cousin Connie Ray who is coming to visit. Lord what a small world it is. I knew there was a reason I've always been so tight with that bunch, aside from the farming kinship.
Stay cool and hydrate. It's dangerous out there ^j^
