OK so today is a holiday in this house. The first tractor pull of the season (that just so happens to be in our town). Today I am ready to sitt on my ass and watch. Watch the tractors that are just comming out of the field. Watch the tractors that are only for pulling. Drink and Drink and Drink. Next week we have to decide on weather or not we want to go to Kentucky or stay around home and go to a pull here. The Kentucky pull has a better track, different compition, little better payout and really really cheep food. The pull close to home is well not 4 hours a way, well I guess that is the extent of the pros for that pull. In a few hours I will be baking in the sun, drinking a nice cold beer, watching/ videoing the pullers as they try to walk it out the gate. "Warning" lots of pics might follow later or tomorrow.

Scratch and Sniff

I know I have been MIA for a little while. I guess I better catch you all up. I turned 25 Shelby turned 4. We had a party for her on sunday. It went amazing!!!! I started reciving shots in my back for pain. (just made it worse so far) We are living in the brick house by our selfs. (the president moved to the white house). Life has been ok so far this month.

I titled this post scratch and sniff becasue we were outside last night and I had wished that I could send the smells in the backyard to eveyone in the world. Ok just the few who read this. We live on a farm as most of you know from reading previous posts. When I walked out the back doo the first thing I was smelling was a evening storm. I my semlling abilties I think if you take a light rain on a 90 degree day and combine it with the smell of a strong storm brewing where you can smell the electric in the air. The next smell was the corn growing. This is not a smell I can decribe. I will try though. Kinda when you mix a light shower with dirt and a little sugar smell. Not really but something like that. After taking that in for a little while Farm boy burnt trash now normaly I would not stick around for that becasue you never know what smells are going to come out of that. For some reason last night I stayed. I am kinda glad I did. When he lit it first it smelled like burning paper. When it took though it started smelling like a bonfire with some Smors cooking and a burn hotdog. I love going outside durning the summer and smelling things. I am not looking foward to when Farm boy shoots the Skunk that is living in the Hay Shed.

I am getting so excited for this weekend!!!! This weekend is the start of TRACTOR PULL SEASON. Shelby is ready to watch Farm boy haul down the track. I am ready for that but more so for the food. Farm boy is ready to see all our friends drink some beer with them and see what the new tractor can do. I will post pic. on Tuesday of this weekend. I guess I should include Shelbys 4 year old picture first though were going to do a quick look back on this time last year.
