Okay, so I'm falling down on the job. First, I'd say that not much has happened. Then I could say that so much has been going on, I don't know where to start.
One of the urgent things to do here was to get some tile breaks fixed. That has been done. Of course, there is always another one which I decided to ignore. During the week, we also went big time and called in the big boys with huge toys to do more tiling. It is nearly impossible to get a tiler to work when you want them, which is after the ground is frost free and before we want to plant. Well, I solved that problem by telling them, "Okay, we'll put the tile in through the planted field. It is not the best idea, but by being flexible, we can get a tiler to do the job.
We've made a couple of trips to Cedar Rapids (and going again tomorrow). The one tomorrow is back to the dentist, a visit we all universally dislike! Sandy also needs some copies made for the computer rally that we're hosting, starting a week from today.
This coming week we head for Ames, Iowa for our 50th anniversary of our university graduation. It ought to be interesting. An AFROTC classmate has sent an email and we look forward to comparing notes when we get there.
At the end of my freshman year, I worked for 2 or 3 days helping returning alumni move into the dorm for the week that they were there for their 50th reunion. It was an eye-opening experience. The reactions of individuals to see someone that they hadn't visited with in over 50 years was very interesting. It did convince me that I wanted to return to my class reunions in the years to come.
We'll leave the rest of the reunion chatter to next week, when it will be after the reunion. I should also mention that the corn is planted here on the farm and the herbicide sprayed., plus we got a nice rain that evening, so the corn should grown. It is time to plant beans, but it looks like the weather is going to slow down that operation a bit.
Tomorrow is off to Cedar Rapids all day. Tuesday we sort, repack and make ready to travel. Wednesday we hit the road for Ames and we'll be boondocking in the stadium parking lot -- thank goodness for solar.
Have a great week.
