Doing Womans Work

I have spent 2 hours cleaning, mopping and just straighting things out.  This is quite a job.  It is an instinct that is built into women that just comes natural, they can clean anything.  God new what he was doing when he made women.  Clean, Clean, Clean.  However they do get kind of noisy at times. Well time to take the dogs out for a walk.

Bartlesville, Oklahoma

The weather is great and I really want to miss winter this year.  We have been in Bartlesville for 2 days now and the sales are great.  I am going to book a couple of auctions and test the economy down here.  Oklahoma has always been good to me.  I wish we could have one more OIL BOOM.  When I started in 1974 and started running Oklahoma in the late 70's I didn't know there was an oil boom going on till it was over. I thought the economy was like that all the time.  As soon as the Republicans get in power and stop Obama maybe we can get things going again.  Obama has no clue how to do nothing.  He is so anti business he is killing us.  I visit with customers all day long and still no Obama takers, I can't find anyone that even likes him.  I can't wait till November 2nd.

Caught a mouse at Walmart...............

I stopped at Walmart tonight in Lexington, and there was a mouse in the parking lot that looked like it was lost and confused.  I had a hell of a time catching it.  I finally caught it and took it over to the grass and let it go.  I probably should have washed my hands before I ate my ice cream cone.

Tea Party Bus in Lexington

As I was leaving Lexington last night, here was a Tea Party Bus, I didn't get very good pictures.

Finished up today in Ogallala, we are now in Cozad, Sammy and Sadie are happy, they have nice grass here.  We worked all day today taking off the vinyl letters off of our trailer, have to get it ready, Verlyn is going to paint it bright yellow in a few days.  When we get the trailer ready we are going to pull into Oxford and it has to be painted in 2 days, because we have to get going south. Everything is rush, rush, rush, having this trailer down for 2 days is going to make this an expensive paint job. We have to sell every day.  Got to go the Ambien is kicking in.

No grass in Ogallala..............

Sammy & Sadie hate Ogallala, no grass anywhere, we have battled & battled with stickers, my fingers are sore and Sammy just stays on the payment.  We even went to the park and it is full of stickers.  Finally I pulled up in front of McDonalds and let the dogs out to poop on their nice grass.  I think I'll try Taco Bell in the morning because they will be closed.

Steel City, Nebraska Tractor Parade

Steel City is a little dinky town southwest of Fairbury, we went down and set up to sell a little, it was no big deal, but we had a good time. Here are some pics of the Tractor Parade.
