    Dennis , we enjoy New Mexico too when we go thru there on our way to AZ. to see daughter . Been thru Las Cruses and that area many times and always enjoy it . Will see if wife has time to post up a couple photos of a cowboy hauling a horse thru Las Cruses . Horse had his head sticking out and his tongue flopping all over just being a show off to everyone .
    Yesterday was a warm humid day . Weather guy said we were at 100% humidity part of the day as the fog stuck around most of the day . So far same today .

    Got back from Las Cruses New Mexico last night at 10pm, left here Sunday 5am, Las Cruces Sunday evening by scenic route in time to check into hotel and go out for super, back to hotel in the dark, up EARLY Monday morning waiting for the sun, and clock, so we could EAT, then pick up his dog. The man I rode and drove with, first a veterinarian, air force veteran, father in law to one
    of the neighbors we have worked with as family with family for the last 4 generations. Joe is one of a kind, hard headed, very intelligent, and practiced veterinarian in New Mexico over 25 years.
    Developed working relationships, friendships with people in a large area, with his practice, love or roping, horses, hunting and dogs. He LOVES New Mexico, would guess if the opportunity comes,
    he will move back there, his youngest grand daughter is a high school sophomore, they moved back to be closer to the four grand kids here and those in Denver. Besides the scenery at a little
    different time of year for me, was an enjoyable adventure and another learning experience. One of our several connections is enjoying history, saw and heard several things that I might have
    read about, but didn't know some of the finer points. Like I told him, I will never get through all there is to see and learn about Kansas history, but would enjoy another trip.

    BTW, this site takes in the reason of our trip...to get his dog

    Dan, isn't your average frost date pretty close?
    " Here" if my corn was in sweet corn stage I would not expect it to make it.
    Good luck!
    I will send some of this 98 degree 90% humidity your way as soon as I figure out how to!

    Drove the river road from Dubuque up to La Crosse Sunday. What a mess they had from last Thursday's deluge.
    All sorts of debris in the ditches and rocks washed down off the bluffs. One had to be about 6' in diameter!!
    Road had been under water in a couple places. Brewery in Potosi was a nice stop!!
    Only saw 1 corn field that had been chopped for silage.

    Heavy fog here yesterday and today . Potato harvest is in full swing here . We still have about a week of sweet corn to go and pumpkins are starting to move too . Some of my field corn is denting but some is still in real nice sweet corn stage . We are getting some nice weather but need a lot more to get the corn across the finish line .

    I'm going along for the ride and to drive, a motor trip to New Mexico...Roswell area or maybe even further south...picking up a hunting dog...

    NOW get this, I've been asked WHAT kind of dog...honestly, I don't know, but I'm telling everyone asking, that it is a pointer...because the other fellow is so damn slow, it has
    to be pointed to him that a bird may flush....and no better than he shoots, he sure doesn't need a retriever... he says trip will be two, maybe 3 days....we will see LMAO

    hint, it will be a few days before you are bothered by me this week!

    all that ground watered corn along the prairie dog creek...will they be using pilot cars?

    here in the domesticated NW of central KS, there has been a lot of re-surfacing going on....wait nearly 15 minutes at both ends...then sometimes it's less than 5minutes, "depends" lol

    law enforcement are pulling their hair...it is P O L I T I C S again!

    We have been trying to haul grain down a gravel lane. Looks like we can go tomorrow. We had been having some rain off and on end of last week. This week it has been 2+ inches a day.
