    From: A real old Farmer

    We have dozens of satellite and cable channels, all the broadcast networks, every big city daily a few dozen NEWS and commentary magazines to remind us the world is in sorry shape.

    The Gazette has its new City Slicker to remind us life goes on and even an Old **** like the City Slicker can poke fun at himself.

    Get off your cantankerous rear, gas up the weed whacker and go do something useful -- Join the war on weeds, you aen't going to seriously impact anything else.

  • Well, City Slicker - maybe you've just met your first rude and obnoxious country folk. On behalf of all of us other country people, let me apologize and let you know how much I enjoy your insight on the way of life we all take for granted.

    Ignore the comments made by "Old Farmer". I really enjoy reading the blogs you post and the other folks listed on the McCook Gazzette. I envy you and hope to one-day get a chance to move from the "big city", Denver and out to McCook area. Every chance I get, I come out there. The people and the area is great. The posting from Old Farmer does not change my opinion.

    To all but the "Old Farmer", thanks for your words of encouragement and support. Margie and I couldn't be happier with our decision to move to Nebraska!

    To "Old Farmer"...

    First, thank you for spending the time to read my blog! I'd appologize to you if I felt I needed to, and I'd pull my head out of the sand if it was there, but neither is the case.

    I don't get paid to write for the Gazette and do it for fun and to share an outsiders point of view of moving from the city to the country. Nothing more, nothing less. I'm not the least bit qualified to report on the economy, global warming, or immigration, though I've read hundreds of articles on the topics.

    Your statement "We are in a crisis and all you can post about is idiotic issues" is pretty much correct! However, that's my story, and I plan on sticking to it.

  • Coffee cans = tender tomato protection! Goats are the best weed eaters around! You may want to consider talking with Chad Taylor of the Nebraska G&P about the benefits of a 'burn' for your weed problems.
