Just a quick note - I'm trying to get some blog historical stuff caught up on the Gazette website as I started writing the blog a couple weeks ago, but didn't have the user agreement with the Gazette finalized until today...
News of our impending purchase of the farm is spreading quickly among our friends and family. Margie's Dad and brother were deer hunting in Minnesota when the news broke, and they decided to swing by to see just what we got ourselves into on their way back to Colorado.
Brother-in-law got to meet some of Nebraska's finest north of McCook on his way, and will be making his contribution to the public coffers.
After visiting the farm...
Dad's quote - "You sure got a lot of work in front of you"
Brothers quote - "Cool Place! I love the tractor"
Now you need to understand that Margie's Dad is a work-a-holic...a seemingly boundless source of energy. He loves to cut and trim trees, and can quickly see that we probably have a lifetime supply of firewood, a boatload of brush to take care of, and outbuildings to do something with.
Brother-in-law thinks power tools...he showed up today with the tractor trader magazine. Wow...some of this power Ag stuff costs BIG bucks.
I can just see myself...Oliver Wendell Douglas (the city farmer from Green Acres TV show) bouncing across the field on my tractor. HA!
