Praise the Lord!

It froze a bit last night, but not hard enough to kill plants, just to shrivel up the tips of the outer leaves of things. I'm praying for no frost tonight, as the next few days are supposed to be in the 70s. Indian Summer perhaps is right around the corner?

I just got home from work in town a little while ago. Mother was in Bismarck all day too, so our kitchen will need a major cleaning job in the morning! The guys were once again busy in the fields... There is always so much to do on a farm, at this time of the year especially.

Before I go, I thought I'd share a bit of humor (from the G.C.F.L.), especially dedicated to my brother Jacob, who loves anything that has to do with flying! Enjoy~


One night at McChord Air Force Base, I was dispatched to
check out the security fence where an alarm had gone off.
The fence was at the end of the base runway. When I got to
the scene, I found a raccoon was the culprit, so I ran
around and flapped my arms to scare the animal away.

Suddenly an air-traffic controller came over the
public-address system and announced loudly, "Attention to
the airman at the end of the runway. You are cleared for
takeoff."

Dear Cora,
I'm thankful it didn't freeze too hard for you. :)

Thanks for sharing.

That's funny. Glad to hear you didn't have a hard frost. I covered the few tomatoes I have. I think they are okay. Have a restful Sabbath, hard working lady.
