The weather outside is beautiful today, quite the opposite of yesterday’s gully-washer. Both days, I watched from the confines of my hospital bed. My back surgery went according to plan and I got to come home today. My therapy consists of walking with more walking plus more walking. I won’t win any races this week, but I’m still moving and that’s enough for now. Mark got a good start to the regimen of nursemaid. He’s got a long way to go.
We hammered out a few acres of that last 250 acres of corn to go. If the sun keeps shining, we’ll call it a wrap on Wednesday. I had hoped to be done by Halloween and we are almost there. I have my Halloween candy bought — 290 pieces this year since we ran out last year. I zipped across Interstate 64 this week for a long lunch with my brother, Mike, and my mom on Wednesday. Mike was home for a short visit and to do some things off mom’s to-do list. I was amazed at the fields of empty crops. It confirmed my thoughts of a harvest almost complete.
Well, time for another nap. I do that a lot lately with the pain meds. My tip for the week is to keep the machinery running at top capacity. It’s tough when breakdowns happen in the field. Until next week, have a great day.
