"Let me get this straight. You want to measure the corn height again? That's six times this week!"


I'm trying to balance a trip to Kentucky with Fabulous Babe's work and class schedule. Along the way I would drop Jack with Farmer Mom and Dad so that I could focus on some things.

Unfortunately the timing collides with the harvest when Farmer Mom and Dad are going to be extremely busy. Right now the timing looks ok for what we have in mind. We'll see. If gas approaches $10 a gallon I'll probably wait but otherwise I think it's a go.

Farmer Dad just wants the season to be over. The new help isn't really working out. It's not that she's not cheerful or enthusiastic but her long term agricultural prospects are probably a little short lived:


As worthless as she is in the field, what with being unable to work due to extreme sunburn, Farmer Dad has noticed at least one upside: his parts and order deliveries are coming faster than they have in 30 years. All the way out to the barn. Imagine that.

(You have no idea how long it took to find a picture of a somewhat cute girl on top of farm equipment similar to what my Father in Law owns. I've been working on this joke for over a year. Heh!)
