Happy hump day

There's a bunch of things I wanted to comment on this week but just haven't had the time or energy. Being back in the workforce is what I expected it would be with me and many others doing the work of three or four people. Productivity they call it. I'd say it's more closer to slavery only with a small stipend at the end of the week. All I know is that age and the past have caught up to me. The joints hurt, my hands and fingers are swollen and it's getting harder to fall out of bed in the morning. So it's another day of pain and torture with two more to follow. And you thought you had it hard pounding the keyboard trying to think of your next post. Ahhhh poor babies!

(Editors' note: With lack of time I'm not going to bother to proof read any of this so if there are typos and bad grammar then so be it. Get over it. You get my drift.)

But you can sleep well knowing that you advanced the GNP of these amber waves of grain!

I got your drift. Now go to sleep. You have to get up and go to work in the morning.

Damned if you do and damned if you don't, I really feel for you. I am lucky in the respect.

I have had major physical labor all my life as a farmer and it is just something to do but you know how that goes, It can change in a second.

Just try to relax and make it through. They can't find an easier spot for you to use more of your brain instead of brawn.

Ya, hump day, I finished spraying the last of almost a mile of pine boards today and returned home for a while.

It's not like we had to rush on this job but we are getting old so it was still hard on both of us.

Oh well, I've got a few days off until the contractor installs the boards on the ceilings, then I'll go back out and we'll do the floors, I'm sure my knees will enjoy that.

That kitten picture is a day brightener.

Hang in, Demeur. That which doesn't kill you makes you stronger. That said, I sympathize, believe me.

Thanks for your service to our country. That's not snark; I mean it. Farmers and ranchers are probably the most underrecognized major contributors to our economy and society, and it shouldn't be that way.

BBC, on the bright side reaching down is much easier than reaching up.
