LOL. I am pretty happy @ the moment, we received 2.8" of rain this morning. The previous 53 day total was less than 1" , so grass should make a strong comeback.
Yea i bet you are happy and sounds like you were needing some rain. We are starting to get dry again here and could use some but we are not bad. I dont think there is any in the forecast for a ways though. Cattle are starting to move here at the sales and the guy I help some just bought some nice black calves with heifers weighing around 300 and the bulls at around 400. I dont remember what he said he paid but the man normally feeds them but called about feed and said it was too high and he sold them this year. I bet there will be alot of that.

I used to work at a grain elevator. We had a guy who hauled corn in the fall for a farmer. The driver was um, "special"...not all there. We will refer to him as Big Jimmy cause that is his name. Big Jimmy is about 40 yrs old. One day while he was at the pit dumping, some of the elevator crew started picking on him, wanting to know if he had ever had any. He said he hadn't, and of course, you can imagine what the elevator guys put poor ole Jimmy thru. I had an older farmer in my office, probably upper 70's, just visiting when one of the elevator hands came to tell me the story about Jimmy being a virgin. The old man laughed and said that when he was a kid, if you hadn't be deflowered by the age of 15 or 16, you went and found a stump trained cow, sheep, horse, or something. (I told the farmer that some you tell, some you keep, and this was a keeper in my opinion.) Anyway, he said he had a cousin who was bad to drink whisky. When he would get drunk, his ole lady wouldn't give him any. So, he would go out and tie a horse up, and he had a stool that was perfect height. He said one night his cousin was outside pouring the coals to the horse and his wife stepped outside and hollered, "If you dont quit f'n that horse, I am gonna start telling EVERYBODY!"
The man hollered back, "If you do, I am gonna tell everyone the horse has better pussy than you!"
I dont know if this is true, but it sure tickled me.
