Something to bring a smile to your face (hopefully):

"Suppose," says the old salt of a sea captain, testing his
new recruit, "that a sudden storm springs up on your
starboard side. What would you do?"

"Throw out an anchor, sir," says the new sailor.

"And what would you do if another storm sprang up aft?"

"Throw out another anchor, sir," the raw recruit replies.

"Now," says the captain, "a storm springs up forward of the
ship. What would you do this time?"

"Throw out another anchor, Captain."

"Hold on, hold on. Where are you getting all these anchors

"From the same place you're getting your storms, sir,"
replied the new recruit.

He got to keep his job.

I have good news! Mother is back home, safe and sound, tired, but happy. She got back just in time, as now I'll be leaving in the morning for 3 days to help our friends, the K. family pack up their belongings in preparation for their move to SC, and SOMEBODY has to take care of our menfolk. :)

More good news: Dad sold 10 more loads of hay today to the guy in Texas who bought the first load a while back. We've also gotten paid for some hay that another guy is buying, but haven't heard from the trucker lately about when he's coming to pick up the bales?

Some not so good news: Andrew had trouble with the tractor while driving it home, as it "Died" 8 times in the 20+ miles from the field to home. The guys think they know what the problem is though, and hopefully it won't cost too much to repair!

Also, while I was driving Andrew's little car today, a light came on and it later made a funny noise, so he might have transmission problems there after all? I was praising the Lord that I made it to work and back though. :)

Well, dear readers, I shall bid thee good night and farewell for a time, as I will not be posting while at our friends' house. May the Lord bless you all.~

Dear Cora,
So glad to hear your Mom is back safely. :)

Sorry about the car... I'm thankful though you made it to work and back safely. A break down is definitely not something you would want. :(

Pray your visit goes well.
Your friend, Carra
