    • Boy came home today. Daughter and bride leave tomorrow at 4am to be in Brookings by 8 signup for classes at SDSU, so I'm staying with him not to tough just making sure he's drinking and eating next few days except pills all his meals come through a 60cc syringe. Checked rain gauge hasn't been dumped since left for fishing ten days ago 5 1/2 inches with 2 3/4 coming yesterday in about two hours.

        • Glad to hear your son is home and on the mend. The only thing about that deal that sounded the least bit good was having to eat mashed potatoes for two weeks. That would be close to heaven for me but doc says cut that starch out. Hope things continue well for him.

          • Thank's guys.

            Today's menu Malt-O-Meal breakfast, mashed potatoes lunch, tomato soup for supper. All through a syringe.
            Lots of apple juice, or Gatorade for beverages. He loves milk but he says it makes to much flem in his mouth and throat. We're using as a thinner for the meals.

              "Rooting" for him from the sidelines!

                  • Can't believe someone is doing a doctorate paper on what is it people like about potatoes, but maybe new subjects are getting hard to come up with. As far as the chocolate malto meal, must be something about our age or generation . I bought a box this winter. Hadn't had it around since the kids grew up and left.

                    • So it looks like Kinghere, and maybe Duke, better lay low for a few hours. The weather chick was flashing all kinds of signs a bit ago, but since I'm colorblind, you'll hafta do your own interpretating .Maybe you'll hafta throw my gov. Inslee overboard to calm the wind, lightening, and whatever else shows up..its gotta be climate change!!

                      • It blew through here at noon inch and three quarters in two hours no dangerous weather here. Cut hay two days ago figure it will rain again tomorrow for the rinse cycle then we'll run it through the cut conditioner to spin cycle.

                        • The storm front came thru like the democrats debate. Lots of noise a bunch of wind but nothing of substance. maybe a 1/3 of rain. It seemed to strengthen going East toward Lee. The rain was actually needed. All these late pl.anted fields that were mudded in need frequent rains to keep from baking. Lots of very yellow stunted crops around here.

                          I still have not got all the lowdown on the new prevent plant rules. But around here crops planted after the 20th of June are usually only poor quality silage. Not enuff days to make grain

                            So your 2nd cut is ruined? We received a very welcomed 3/4 inch this A.M. we are irrigating the 4th cutting right now. It all goes for silage, easier than dry hay. So much of the silage corn around here has issues, with wireworm being the worst. The best fields will make 6 feet by the 4th of July. We religiously put Sniper insecticide in the furrow when we plant, the worm risk is too high. Good luck with your crops.

                              I got a daughter at U of Wisc. Madison working in potato research. Her work includes what's in the potatoes like levels of protein , starches , etc. I guess they just want to make my favorite veggie even better ! ha She also does a lot of work on diseases and pests. She is a sophomore and got the job when older sister (senior) boyfriend left that potato research job for a 9 month paid internship to work for Burt's Bees , a subsidiary of Clorox Corp. the bleach company. He is working on being a chemical engineer in college and is working in the lab at Burts Bees. The youngest daughter is working on an engineering career as well although not a chemical engineer (so far). Says she likes the work including going to the research farms. She is doing summer class work also.

                              The older daughter took tests she'll need to apply for med. school. No word yet. Fingers and toes still crossed. I knew she was doing well but her sister told us the older sister has a 4.0 grade point average after 3 years and that includes taking the toughest courses to hopefully get into med school. She is working full time during summer at a Madison Wisc. hospital. She takes and runs blood samples mainly. At $16 an hour they work her long and hard .
