Well, I'm three months into the new job. It feels really wierd to have more time on my hands than ever. Even
back in my college days I was usally working for an employer that was in a business that was dependent on keeping farmers
moving during the small window between harvest and winter. Now every Saturday is free to be out farming, which is my
first love. So far I enjoy the job and have started to figure the ins and outs of the welding supply business.
Six years ago when I graduated from college, I never dreamed this is where I would be. Actually the road of life some
of us had a map and route planned out and would go ape when things deviated but sometimes when you take the detours, you go
places you never knew about and are worth exploring. Thats how I feel about my job, I detoured from my route in 2000
and while on the detour, I found another road to turn on and this one may lead somewhere again that I'm unaware of.
Congratulations to Maureen on being a grandma for the second time and congratulations to Gloria on being grandma for
the first time.
Congratulations are instore for Laurence Huber of Rippey Iowa. He captured the 2005 national plowing championship
this year. Plowing is a form of tillage that has slowly disappeared from the agriculture landscape. For the men
of Laurence's generation, it was a time honored tradition and an art to perfect. Again, congrats on the championship.
For those of you who either know me or have followed me in this site may remember the difficult time I went through in
November of 2003 and then the miraculous falling for a foreign lady a few days later. Of course that had to end a few
months later with some very bitter and anger filled heartbreak. To celebrate Erezebet, this fall on November 22, I'm
going to take the last remaining vestigaes I have of her, (many were destroyed when we broke up but before we patched things
up) throw them in a barrel full of diesel fuel, and then light it on fire. It will be fun to burn things and to
celebrate the burning of remnants of a lady who nearly destroyed me from the inside out.
No major political campains this fall really bites!!! Next year we will have a very hottly contested race for Governor
so at least I have something to look forward to in the realm of politics next year.
