Hot (still)

Got up or close to 100 last couple days.. it is a hot and dry booger… no moisture to speak of for a long time, fires been happening, got a big one down south of Kadoka they are working on… been having some trouble with a tooth so went in yesterday to be told it need pulled, but they couldn’t do it where I was so went on to Rapid and they did pull it.. one of my wisdom teeth.. fist tooth I’ve even had pulled that I can remember.. it wasn’t bad.. the swelling and pain is a pain this morning, but not real bad.. gave me some oxygen condo or some such and it’s a waste of time.. only drug I’ve ever got from a doctor that I liked was Demoral.. man, I could turn into an addict on that stuff! 😀

Not much happening around here, neighbor came over yesterday and cut a small patch of alfalfa up the creek.. probably won’t amount to much but in a drought year there is no sense waiting for seed, especially as we will probably have to graze it before we could get it combined for the seed anyway… and there are hoppers working on it….

Been doing some leather work on these hotter days…been praying for rain along with my regular prayers for all those I pray for… We did a Novena to St Isodore, twice and got rains both times, must be time to do one again… everyone is trying to locate or haul in feed for this winter which I am afraid will be a cold hard one.. seems like dry years make for hard winters.. not enough feed to begin with and seems like your only going to get so much moisture a year anyway, so if you don’t get it in spring and summer you will get it in winter.. maybe we will have a wet fall…

  1. I do wish some of the rain we are getting could find its way to you. Here it’s flooding and spoiled crops and not the best prospects for winter either. Take care!

  2. So sorry the ranchers/farmers are going through the drought. Growing up on the ranch we experienced some bad years. In the early 60,s we hauled water from Newell, 25 miles a way, every day. My dad leased some irrigated ground near there also and hayed the alfalfa for feed. He never ranted and raved about it. It was just part of life on the prairie. I see that in you, too. Thank you, Bob, for your comments.
