The Corn is harvested

Farmer John rotates between soy beans and corn.  (Farmer John leases the acreage of my mom's farm; I lease the house.) The corn is usually my favorite, though this year I found it more oppressive.  It is sooo tall and makes the house more isolated than usual.

Once the corn is harvested I realize how much land is out here.  Wide open spaces.  It is a nice feeling.

Ultrasound too

Looks familiar?

They get a lot of use in the month of October. I have to admit it had been three years since I had had my last one. When I went to the doctor for a physical she found a bump on my right side. She figured it was probably a cyst as it was movable but they gave it special attention today. It is a cyst.

This is your friendly reminder.

Or fall

Cobalt recall

I am happy to say my ignition thingamabob is being replaced today under the Cobalt recall. I am unhappy to say I have been at the dealership for two hours

August had a couple of real downers to it.  I lost my last barn cat. And I was robbed.  Sheesh.  Yes, someone actually came into my home and stole my cameras. My cameras. My hobby. My heart. Bad people. I wasn't here. I suspect it was a troubled kid down the road, but have no proof.  The sad thing is, if she had stopped by, shown an interest in the cameras, I could have taught her a thing or two and probably figured out a way for her to take over one of the cameras.  They were old.  *sigh*  Look for more postings in September on cats and cameras.

On the great side of August, we had a super 86th birthday picnic for Mom out here at the farm.  She actually seemed to enjoy being the center of attention! Yay!
