a 1000 miles from the corn field.-Dwight D. Eisenhower,1890-1969
*Little ol' boy in the Panhandle told me the other day you can
still make a small fortune in agriculture. Problem is, you got
to start with a large one. - Jim Hightower
*The farmer has to be an optimist or he wouldn't still be a farmer.
- Will Rogers, 1879 - 1935
Thanks to Tom for sending us the above sayings. I thought I would add some jokes that I came across. Hope they lighten your day!
Celebrating an event
"Let's have a party, Homer," she suggested. "Let's kill a pig."
The farmer scratched his grizzled head. "Gee, Ethel," he finally answered, "I don't see why the pig should take the blame for something that happened fifty years ago."
"Is it true Mr. (Smith) that you lost 2,025 pigs?" she asked.
"Yeth." lisped the farmer.
Being a Howard County girl herself, the tech entered: "Subject lost 2 sows and 25 pigs."
Winning Nobel prize
The man gets out of the car, walks all the way out to the farmer and asks him, "Ah excuse me mister, but what are you doing?"
The farmer replies, "I'm trying to win a Nobel Prize."
"How?" asks the man, puzzled.
"Well, I heard they give the Nobel Prize . . . to people who are out standing in their field."
Until next time.............
