Still pretty soft and muddy, but wanted to get my soil sample in so I can start getting my amendments. Fan over night, put in double paper bags in morning, then off to western labs tomorrow after work.

I think this is some kinda sign, my check number to western labs is my current personal best, good or bad not sure lol.

If you get a chance check out mark Mourlas's www.PumpkinPhoto.com he takes some awesome pictures of all the events he goes to. at the Wisconsin seminar I was able to hand out a few GPC awards, it's my favorite part of being the Central Region Rep. Wish i had them all but as Gene would say "It is what it is" hopefully have a handful of jackets to deliver here in the next week, along with a bunch of patches. Mike was nice enough to step in for a photo recognizing my 4500 achievement. still waiting on my patch though lol.

Made my 4x5's into 5x8's, and made a 5th. Did this, fixed the car, spread amendments, put a new heat exchanger from the woodstove in. If it weren't for the 40 mph wind might have done a little more.

It felt right so when I received my regions long overdue jackets I wanted to hand deliver as many as I could. So being wet, and windy it was a great weekend to go for a roadtrip, covered just about 900 miles Friday and Saturday, and got most delivered, need to mail Travis's and Richard Bottorf's when the Patches arrive. Great seeing all of them. Congrats
