On the road again...

Well, I am not going to post part 2 of the auction just yet. I have more pictures to post and all, but I have a confession - I didnt watch the land be sold. Couldnt bring myself to see it. I consider myself pretty tough, *slaps hand over coffeemans mouth - gives him hairy eyeball look* but I could'nt do it.... sorry if your disapointed. However, there will be more pictures of the event, but today is another day of fun filled excitment. First I am going to the farm and then to my brother Bubbys birthday party... Bubby is the baby of the family, at least by age anyway. He is the youngest boy - and the funnest in our family to be around. SO - we are off to his party today. I will be back with pictures of a hillbilly birthday party, complete with muddy four wheelers, muddy horses and llama's - not sure how they fit in, but around here ya never know...


BTW - I am not sure that you are aware of the jokes or humor that a farmer has. Its a well kept secret and I have decided to share it with you....be warned. Most farmers have a slew of jokes in their stand up act that would rival Tim Conway... except the one about the elephant, that one rocks. so - here is one of our favorites. Ole and Lena are standbys in the part of the country so please dont be offended. We often self demoralize/degrade for the sake of a good laugh.


Ole and Lena were standing in the kitchen talking about the new line of machinery that they had seen at the John Deere shop just that morning. Lena turned around and bent to get a pan out of the bottom cupboard, as she did this Ole said "Lena, you are gettin as vide (wide) as that thar new combine down at the John Deere shop." Lena stood up and face Ole, but didnt say a word and just smiled sweetly. Later that night when Ole and Lena went to bed, Ole snuggled up to Lean and asked her if she was 'interested' in a little fun. Lena smiled her sweet smile and looked straight into Ole's eyes and said "Ole, if you think I am going to start up this $100,000 piece of machinery for that little cob, you have another thing coming."


ISNT THAT THE BEST EVER!!! I laugh so hard everytime I hear it... probably because I can relate to it.....


Well, here is another picture for no reason....

okay, so i am thinking 20 years or so, we are going to have to set one of my girls up with one of your boys! They are TOO freakin' cute!!!
I spit coffee on my computer over that joke, I am sharing it tomorrow at sunday supper for sure. We're a village of nothing but farmers. we just vary in age. lol
my mom has a combine tire in her yard too. where the septic tank thingy comes out of the ground or whatever, they put the tire around it, and planted tulip bulbs. I used to have old combine tires in my sheep/goats pasture area, they would climb them, and play in them, bouncing around, and back and forth. :)

I don't blame you for not sticking around for the land sale. I wouldn't have been able to do it either. What handsome guys you have there! Have a great weekend!

Heidi, you should not put a woman of my age into the almost compromising position of peeing my pants. I LAUGHED SO HARD! That is the best joke I have heard in a long time! My hubby is the big joke teller. I have heard his jokes for 20 years. I told him this one and let him know I wouldn't mind hearing it for a few.

the boys look awesome!!!!

What a great picture of the boys. They look so nice all cleaned up. If they are like mine, they don't stay "cleaned up" for long :)

I think Big Son looks a little constipated...Lispy looks scared of the camera and Milk Dud - welll, he is wearing a lavander shirt because my Amish friend made it special for him for Easter. They wear bright colors until they are 'older' - so he was Amish for the day! :)
As for the joke, I LOVE THAT JOKE!!
No, they did not stay clean for long! LOL
