cant believe it is already july. it aint like time is passing by quickly. guess if you see enough seasons pass, one will go by without noticing. maybe hearing i am a great grand pa again got to me. never thought i would live this long. i am not old but too many of the people i knew didnt make it this far.
the fourth is a coupla days away. i think of the old country saying about corn. knee high by the fourth of july. i guess that is the benchmark for corn. mine is waist high now. that must mean my corn is doing okay. i hope it continues to grow until harvest time.
we will have fireworks for the grand kids. they want them. while all the celebrating of freedom and independence is going on i will think of those kids at the border. and my bros behind the walls. not all are free in a country to holds itself up as the epitome of freedom.
they just cut the hay in our field and baled it up. it is usually cut by the fourth. i get a rent check from my share of the hay. it isn’t anywhere near what the hay is worth though.
it is already july and i haven’t gone any where. i assume i will go on a road trip some time. i am not ready to start a go fund page to send this poor indian to the great wall of china and Angkor wat. the best trips are the ones where we just up and go. we get a destination in mind and go. the trip there and back is as much fun as the end destination.
i need to head to town. i need to set up an irrigation system for my tomato plants. i have soaker hoses. i need attachmets to rig it up to my water faucet hose. the soaker hose will circle the plants. then has to be connected to the next bed of tomatoes. i have some tomatoes forming already.
we had boiled cabbage with polish kielbasa sausage last night. it was made with the cabbage i grew. we already had fresh cole slaw with my cabbage. both tasted real good. better than store bought cabbage.
mary picked some more of my kale i grow. i dont know how much longer i will get some of that. the heat will make it turn bitter real soon. we have eaten it several times now. i will continue to grow it every year.
i got the new lens for my glasses yesterday. it replaced the lens that was scratched. it was put into my glasses and i was on my way. it didnt cost me anything. it dont seem right that i have to pay extra for scratch protection instead of that place guaranteeing their product. no business does that any more.
i bought about 15 cds at a garage sale for a buck apiece. that is more economical than buying one song off iTunes for 99 cents. i get a collection of songs for the money. i will add songs to my play lists. i listen to them when i am doing something and when i am on a road trip. i would rather listen to music i enjoy instead what is on the radio. half the time they play lame music.
we will have a cookout over the weekend. that will be fun.
