hello crazy

the crazy one would be I -- yes, I.

trying not to focus on what to do or what is not done
rather I'm attempting to focus on the accomplishments of the day.

so far the only accomplishment this week is "pissing off everyone"
.. seems to be the theme of the week.
.. shucks

so to combat said craziness -- see you in March, maybe April, 77 days of hell remain.

and 4 days later

a lot of white stuff fell from the sky ... I don't think it was necessary for the whole 11 inches to land.
nasty day ... since every other business in town opted to close early ... Meagan and I also left the office --- I was home by 2:00ish .. took 1/2 hour to make the 5 minute commute.  Once me and my box of work arrived it was a productive afternoon and evening.  I brought home a full box of work and all of it got done.  Our current version of internet is expensive but reliable!  The cost of internet is almost as much as the payment on the first (well, second) vehicle I bought.  Gad -- I'm getting old.
elder #1 felt the need to get out the "big equipment" ... after the small snowblower, the pickup truck and shovel -- he felt the need to get out his tractor.  He and it arrived at the office this noon -- it was a welcome sight.
and 5:00 ish I heard a buzz and saw this one ... down the street and stopped next door ... proceeded to cross the street and use the ATM ... what the hell.   note:  the stop sign got wiped out by a car and is being held upright by sand bags ....  goofy, day peeps, really goofy day.

on the 31st day of January

it was beautiful  --- warm, sunny and just plan fabulous.

Ruby all tucked in for the winter.
Dad put the "blanket" on her ....
that would be melting snow and mud.
hmmm-- I don't like muddy paws.
and the patch --- I trekked out there for fresh air ...

the future

so yesterday,  I spent a couple of hours with the Ag Class at the high school.  5 bright, articulate, imaginative, polite seniors.  I was impressed.  I was invited by their teacher (who was teaching biology when I was there 37 years ago) to speak on agricultural tax issues. 

It was fun.  I can't wait to go back -- they've been given a "project" and well, we'll be assisting them on the finance / tax / cash flow aspects of it. 

Our conversation ranged from land use / zoning issues, alternative energy sources, diversification of commodities, cultural shift in our populations -- and how to feed those populations ---

It was a fast two hours ....

and ... there was a bit of tax chat too ....
