NASA scientists spent a decade and $12 billion developing a pen that writes in zero gravity, upside-down, on almost any surface including glass and at temperatures ranging from below freezing to over 300 C

Hey, be glad you can still write a letter if you want! :shock:

Alabama forcast for the next 3 months is "Hot and Humid with no rain in sight." I am starting to get dry but at least I am able to finish the first cutting.

SD
West central SD has had very high humidity, with slightly above normal temp and sounds like it will continue a while. Saturday was 90/90 (temperature AND humidity both hitting the 90 mark). Not fun! Today was about the same. Moved some cows several miles. Started about 4:30AM and the didn't move well at all. They were in the n.e. corner of the pasture and did not want to move to the s.w. which was direction they had to go. Expected guys here for dinner at noon and it was just after 2:pM when they got in. Started cutting alfalfa after dinner, and going over old alfafla ground prior to planting milo filled out the day. I thought they should quit and take the rest of the day off after putting in such a long "morning", but it was about 8PM before the first guy showed up finished for the day. All too typical of days on this ranch!

Hi MRJ, haven't seen a post from you in a long time. You must be hanging out on the Bull Session Forum? Stopped in there recently and seemed like I'd stepped back into old times reading SH's comments again! :)

I was wondering when you talked about harvesting alfalfa, do they still use teams of hired men that go from ranch to ranch and state to state out there at harvest time? Or is there enough local manpower or family power to do the job? I hestitate to use the word "local" in SD!
Sure means something different than where we are!!! When Clarence (?) said he had to travel 100 miles to a coffee shop, well, that's not exactly what most call local!

Hi MRJ:

We were through your area (passed your place on 63) both Thursday and Sunday--looked like you all were moving cattle Thursday, and Sunday was a barnburner-we stopped for gas in Midland and about passed out from the heat and humidity!

Tis the season for busyness (is that a word, if so is it spelled correct?) I guess! We're AIing, trying to hay (been broke down--and the season just began!), planting millet and sorghum (both for hay) and spraying---

Your country sure looks good, nice and green. There were some folks hauling water in your area-was that for spraying or are you all still short on water in dams?

We also traveled through SH's area, Clarences area (I think, anyway we were through Martin) and past Soapweed ranch---all areas looked great--and even saw a Trumpeter Swan in Hyannis NE coming home Sunday--what a treat!

Anyway, hope everyone is doing well--

Cheers,
:D

Well, the temp is up over 90 degrees here again today. :(
Humidity is high. Mosquitoes and black flies are outrageous.
The good part is that the winter fat, I put on this year, has melted off. :lol:

Is it the "Fat" melting or is it the "pudding" that makes your underwear so putrid? Next time when you change into clean underwear..............try taking a shower!
That kinda helps keep the odor down too. :???: :shock: :roll: :wink:

And throw the underwear with the "SKID MARKS" in the bottom away!
WHEEEEEEEEEEW!!!!!!!!!

Yes, I noticed the signature. It sends the message that I am sleazy. :roll:

Been pretty hot here too (mid 90's) but the humidity is low, low, low. Around 75%.
Funny,Got down to 60 the other night at our party and the girls who where drinking beer and not dancing were sitting around shivering!
Sympathetic? I have no sympathy (except for your wife) for anyone who doesn't wash his butt regularly. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Ok, I'll change the signature as a show of good faith. :roll:

Okay, I need to tell a disgusting story here.

I have a friend, that wasn't feeling that well one day. He got caught too far from the house later in the day, and had to "go". Well he didn't quite make it and had to toss the undies, behind the barn.

Thought he had it made and the wife would never find out. First mistake, the dog brought the evidence to the front step, later that night.

In her words, "oh, my Gosh, did you hit a deer"
