Life As I See it Here in the Country On April 9/2024

Good Morning! “Where the early bird may get the worm, but the farmer gets the whole dang garden!”

Well, it is looking like a real nice day is shaping up for us here in the north. At least for this morning, as the afternoon we could see some showers. Which is needed to get things to growing. I have also noticed that the grass is turning greener, and the animals are showing that spring is in the air. Also, the Robins are searching for worms and the geese are flying north. Some mighty nice signs for what’s to come.

On another note, yesterday, my wife and I worked away on the new fishpond we are wanting to do. I have to say that it has been a bit challenging digging the hole, with all the roots from the old trees that used to be close to where we are digging. But we are overcoming things as we go along. I kind of think it will be ready for a liner that I have to order by the end of the day. Then I will get onto making a new water wheel, which I will see if I can make a video, of how I do it as I go along. I will see how that pans out.

Farmer’s Wisdom: You know…. many times years ago I looked out over my fields and said: In farming, you learn patience. You plant the seed, you wait for the rain, and then you wait some more. But when that first sprout comes up, it sure put a smile on my face!

Highway 522 is bare and dry this morning and other than a few 4x4s and lawn mowers running around, things are pretty quiet. You know, I have always figured when traveling, that the journey’s just as important as the destination, and on Highway 522, my wife and I take that to heart. We may not be breakin’ any land speed records, but we’re making memories…. one mile at a time. And over the years we have made a lot.

On another note, the eclipse didn’t pan out as a lot of folks would have liked, but all in all it was a nice day. Truth told, I plumb forgot all about it there for a while, with all we had going on.

With that, I am off for my morning bowl of porridge and a piece of toast that my lovely wife is preparing for me. It’s kind of a normal thing for me these days, as it stays with me, and gives me the energy that is needed to make it through till lunchtime. Of course, that hot cup of cocoa we both enjoy every morning, along with our morning chat, helps a lot too. Which a lot of marriages are missing these days!

You all have a great day and remember: “Life’s got its ups and downs, like the furrows in a field. Just keep moving forward, and you’ll reach the end of the row eventually.”

Fishing Tip Of The Day From Two Old Codgers: Barry and I always find that when fishing. It’s best to look for areas where the water flows slower, like behind rocks or near the shore lines. Those calm spots are where fish tend to gather to conserve energy. Just remember not to fall asleep while waiting for a bite – fish have been known to play pranks on snoozing anglers! Which Barry and I have found out occasionally.
