See the link for details of a Wounded Warriors Raffle. He’s giving away good stuff – well, the raffle prizes are good stuff, I’m not thinking he’s giving it away.
Cruddy day. Emotionally wise. Just another over hot, dry day other wise.
Managed to get a bit of the running about before the eight AM hour. Bunkered cattle feed. I found out that the plan is to take the cattle to the butcher 15 Sep. That means around the first week of Oct, maybe a bit later – if coordination is normal, after the 15th of November, I should get the payment for the pasture, water and care.
The November date is the most probable because of the seasons. The butcher is sixty miles more or less North and the drive up and back a trial for the Renter and his wife. Therefore, they’ll do me and the church in a swoop just before Thanksgiving.
The family will do their out sharing as needed – they are all known at the lockers.
In that vein, I went out and purchased a freezer. Never had one, didn’t feel I ever needed one. But this summer, because of food prices and the heat, I tried to fit seven pounds of ice and all those bargain’s in various freezers in the grocers I’ve developed a positive outlook on freezers.
Which brings up one of those “grumble, sniff” moments.the ladies at Sears in Independence actually shoved me aside to operate the tail gate of the truck attempting to load the freezer on the truck. I hadn’t been paying attention to who I was dealing with – I should have when two females were the sole proprietors of the store, but I was too into reviewing my next stop on the buying tour.
Too many sexes anymore, or wannbe sexes. Give a guy heart burn trying to keep the PC conduct in mind for each.

Don’t ask. The village councilors have been in office too long, I believe.
