‘KINGS ON A LEDGE’ - I THINK THEY HAVE A GREAT SOUND
Kept my fingers tightly crossed all night in the hopes of seeing sunlight first thing this morning but it was not to be and we spent yet another day under mostly cloudy skies. A few afternoon sun splashes but that was all. Temps had also dropped back into the mid 40’s for the day and that made for a cold wind.
COUNTRY ROADS WERE STILL SOUPY FROM THURSDAY’S ALL DAY RAIN
TOO WET IN SOME FIELDS SO FARM EQUIPMENT WAS LEFT PARKED UNTIL THE LAND DRYS OUT A BIT
I’M THINKING THIS IS A RECENTLY HARVESTED BEAN FIELD
NOT TOO WET FOR THESE DAUNTLESS DUFFERS EAST OF SEAFORTH THIS MORNING
WATER LYING IN ROADSIDE DITCHES AND LOW AREAS
WE HAVE OUR OWN ‘BOOT HILL’ NORTH EAST OF EXETER
NOT TO WET FOR THESE HARDY HARVESTERS
THESE TWO UNITS ARE DRIVING ALONG SIDE BY SIDE WHILE THE GREEN COMBINE CUTS THE CORN STALKS AND TRANSFERS THE KERNALS TO A HOPPER WAGON
THE HOPPER WAGON NOW FULL EDGES OVER TO THE SIDE OF THIS 18 WHEELER TRANSPORT AND TRANSFERS IT’S LOAD INTO THE TRUCKS OPEN TOP TRAILER
Undaunted and despite the gloomy morning Pheebs and I headed out anyway and made the best of it. Cranked up some tunes, fired up the heater and we were good to go. Managed to scrape together a few photos along the way and that was about it. Passed through the towns of Clinton, Exeter, and Varna as well as a little place called Egmondville.
FOUND US A FEW MORE BARN QUILTS ALONG THE WAY
I have about 65 area barn block quilt photos now but still have not been able to figure out how to get them into a photo album and onto my blogsite. Seems to be some kind of problem between Google Photos and Blogger. Wondering if anyone out there knows how it can be done…….if it can be done.
My son Sean and another musician by the name of Tony Lind (guitarist) have teamed up calling themselves ‘Kings On A Ledge’ and recently recorded two new songs. I listened to them today and thought they were both excellent. The two songs ‘Waking hours’ and ‘The Returned’ can be heard here, Kings On A Ledge. Sean does the vocals, production and keyboards as well as writes the songs. I think they have a great sound……………….
GROANER’S CORNER:(( Patient 1: “Why did you run away from the operation table?” Patient 2: “The nurse was repeatedly saying ‘don’t get nervous’, ‘don’t be afraid’, ‘be strong’, ‘this is a small operation only’, things like that.” Patient 1: “So what was wrong in that? Why were you so afraid?” Patient 2: “She was talking to the surgeon!”
- If you can't be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.
- The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing at the right time, but also to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.
- He who hesitates is probably right.
- Did you ever notice: The Roman Numerals for forty (40) are " XL."
- If you think there is good in everybody, you haven't met everybody.
- If you can smile when things go wrong, you probably have someone in mind to blame.
The sole purpose of a child's middle name is so he can tell when he's really in trouble.
- When you put the 2 words "The" and "IRS" together it spells "Theirs."
