Good Morning from a sunny, cool Knolltop.
Every morning when I get up to post the news for Dairy Agenda Today at 3 am, I have my office window open and it's fun to hear the night sounds. Sometimes I hear a cat walking through the bushes, other times I"ve looked out and under the mercury light I've seen a skunk scurrying around the yard, but the last two mornings I've heard a nightmare outside! Nightmare in the corn patch!
While everything else is really quiet, I have heard the squeeky sound of corn being shucked. Now I know that as dedicated as my children are to making sure we have enough food for winter, I'm pretty sure they've been asleep in their beds and that the shucking culprits are those BLASTED COONS! As I sit there at my computer I can hear them knocking down the corn stalk, pulling off the husks and while I can't hear it, I can imagine their giggling faces as they munch on my just ripened sweetcorn!
Tomorrow morning I'm going to put out a coke and fly bait buffet and let them enjoy some sweet tonic! We'll just see who's giggling tomorrow morning!
Monday was a treat as I was on Rural Route Radio with Trent and Kyle. That is always a bunch of fun. And Kyle was kind enough to send a picture or two of his trip to Ft Worth for a Ag Media summit. Looks like these business trips can be real grueling.
