  • I was at a funeral visitation where I was to officiate. Visitors were steadily coming in when I spotted a familiar face, but no one I really knew – we did some volunteer work together.
    I went over to say hello, and with funeral notice in hand and booming voice, he says, “I didn’t know you were a preacher?” – loud enough for all whole world to hear.
    Then he caught what he said and rejoins, “Not that you have done anything wrong.”

  • I spent this past weekend feeling sad.
    The reason isn’t important — actually, there really wasn’t a reason other than I just felt like being sad, and so I was.
    I called my sister to tell her that I was sad, but she was at her granddaughter’s soccer game and didn’t answer her phone, which made me even sadder.
    I would’ve told my husband I was sad, but he would just tell me all the reasons I have not to be sad or he’d give me a pep talk, which is not the proper response to sadness, in my opinion.

  • Leaf raking is an autumn chore that only children enjoy because they get to undo it in one fell swoop.  
    We rake and pile and they jump. I propose a new approach that just may make us all happy: adults can still rake a little, children can still play and trees will benefit from some mulch and fertilizer.  
    At the farm, raking leaves is passé; we let them stay where they fall (with reason, of course) which is usually beneath their canopy.

  • Farm Service Agency (FSA) announces that the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) began mailing ballots to eligible farmers and ranchers for the 2015 FSA County Committee elections on Monday, Nov. 9. Producers must return ballots to their local FSA offices by Dec. 7, 2015.
