This is our week to look for a unit to deliver. Checking website late afternoon on Monday, only 1 to pick-up in
Black walnuts are all shucked, washed & caged for storing. Garden produce is packed away or can wait for processing. Can we get packed in 3 hours?? Let’s Do It!
A stop at Seven Stars Family Restaurant in
As the sun appeared on the horizon we could see that the 28˚ made the combined bean fields white with frost! Drove into Bennett’s lot--- only 1 unit waiting to be delivered and 3 drivers waiting for a unit. A result of the slowing economy.
After hooking up the Saturn & checking out the $100,000 View, we filled up with 24 gallons diesel at the local station and headed East! Acres of beans combined, acres of corn & beans still to be combined and many combines in the fields.
Clouds and rain are chasing us, but right now the sun is reflecting all the colors of fall---making the browns look like polished bronze, the yellow golds, and the reds & oranges glow. Even the grey/white of the harvested bean fields and the rust-colored tall grass in the ditches seem to glow! The occasional bright green pasture makes a brilliant accent to the quilt-like scenes.
What is new on the Iowa/Illinois landscape? Lines of windmills on Wind Farms, steam rising from the tall pipes of the ethanol plants and a dentist chair sitting on the bank of a small fishing pond waiting to make a fisherman comfortable!
Home for the night is a parking place at Love’s Truck Stop in
After an Arby's breakfast we were on the road watching the sky color change from the rays of the rising sun. It is a challenge to keep enough gas in the tank, but no more than needed in order to save us some $$. A real world math problem!
Early afternoon on Wednesday we were on the dealer’s parking lot, unhooking, unloading & waiting for signed paperwork after his inspection. Thanking the Lord for another successful and safe delivery. Let’s go explore South West Ohio!
