Wanna be impressed? Read the bio at the end

8/28/09 Friday
3:41 – Just came in from running the tractor, disking as much of the five acres as I can. I ran it for about four hours, until it ran out of the five gallons of gas I put in. That kicked my ass. I have a big headache now and sitting in that hard tractor seat for so long didn’t do me any good either. Walking is difficult now. The paralysis of my right leg is evident as it usually is when I get tired or sit for a while. I wonder if the headache is connected to the clouds of pollen and seeds the tractor kicked up as I drove through the three foot high jungle of weeds. This stuff kept getting in my eyes, making it hard to see. While out there I found some renegade watermelon plants that had sprung up from seeds left when the dogs broke open melons last year. They must have sprung up when we got those July rains. It was a surprise. I didn’t disk them up so will go back out and see if they are ripe. There was only two or three that might be but everything is drying up now.

This is a killer headache but I have things to do. Top of the list is to pick as many blackeyed peas as I can for the market tomorrow. We’re pretty much broke now and Cherie won’t get her check till Monday. It’s a poop scoop day and we must by dog food as they are all the way out so I’ll be running to Midland after I cool off and the aspirin hopefully reduces the headache.

I’ve been working to get Dr. Ron some speaking engagements or at least meetings with churches to get support for his ministry. Here’s a copy of his bio. It’s something else.
